Indian stores to sell Xiaomi phones

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi Inc has decided to sell devices through a leading electronics retail chain in India, part of its effort to move away from online-only sales and boost growth in the world’s third-largest smartphone market.

Xiaomi launched its India operations with online marketplace in July, selling its phones through flash sales where availability is limited to short timeframes.

The company this year decided to sell its Redmi Note 4G handsets through shops of carrier Bharti Airtel Ltd, but that would still need an online registration.
