The company also confirmed the reason for the price drop. It says that they have seen a reduction in component costs of these models. As they have a philosophy of honest pricing where they don’t make more than 5% profit margin, they decided to announce the price cut for these models.
It is also worth to note that Xiaomi recently announced price hike for Redmi 6A, Redmi 6, MI LED TV 4C Pro 32, MI LED TV 41 Pro 49 and MI Power bank 2i due the fall of Indian Rupees against dollars.
