Xiaomi, today, announced it will start selling the flagship Xiaomi 12 Pro (review) at an effective price of Rs 52,999. Since the 12 Pro originally starts at Rs 62,999, we’re looking at a price reduction of Rs 10,000. As part of the promotional sales offer, Xiaomi will offer a discount of Rs 4,000 (say for instance, this will be available as a discount coupon on Amazon) on the phone and an additional Rs 6,000 discount to ICICI Bank credit card or EMI customers. This appears to be same as the introductory scheme which was made available at launch and should help Xiaomi further undercut the OnePlus 10 Pro— the 12 Pro’s biggest rival. OnePlus, too, is offering the OnePlus 10 Pro (review) with an instant bank discount of up to Rs 5,000 as part OnePlus community sale event.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro starts at Rs 62,999 for a version with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. A version with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage will set you back by Rs 66,999. The phone is available across Amazon, Mi.com, Mi Home stores, and other Xiaomi retail channels in the country. OnePlus 10 Pro price in India, for context, starts at Rs 66,999 for a version with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage. A version with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage will set you back by Rs 71,999.
