Xiaomi Mi 3, the four-year-old phone from Xiaomi has re-appeared on Flipkart. Interestingly, the phone is priced at the same price as its launch price. The Xiaomi Mi 3 smartphone was launched way back in September 2013 for Rs. 13,999.
It’s odd that a four year old 3G only phone has been listed after being discontinued, that too at a price of Rs. 13,999 when the company’s own budget devices are being offered at a price lower than this. This may very well be an error and the listing may be removed.
