The Mi 11X Is Cheaper in Pakistan Than India And It’s Not Xiaomi’s Fault

The Xiaomi Mi 11X was launched in India today, alongside the Mi 11X Pro and the Mi 11 Ultra.

The Xiaomi Mi 11X, which was launched in India today, is cheaper in Pakistan than it is in India, according to a tweet by leakster Abhishek Yadav. Yadav pointed out that the Poco F3 (being sold in Pakistan) and Mi 11X (being sold in India), which are both rebranded versions of the Redmi K40 smartphone, are being sold at different price points. The Poco F3 is priced at 55,999 Pakistani Rupee, which is equal to about INR 27000. The Mi 11X, on the other hand, is priced at Rs. 29,999 in India, which is just about 10% higher than the price in Pakistan.

While that’s an interesting factoid, it really means nothing for Indian users. For one, the pricing of a phone depends on a number of factors, including duties imposed by a country, exchange rates and more. The Indian Rupee, for instance, recorded its biggest single day fall against the US Dollar earlier this month, which affects how companies price their smartphones.

More importantly, the Rs. 29,999 price tag is competitive for the Indian market, which would be higher on the company’s priority than looking at prices in neighbouring countries. Not to mention, 55,999 Pakistani Rupee is pretty expensive if you consider it from their point of view. If you don’t have a frame of reference for this one, the iPhone 12 is priced at 192,000 Pakistani rupees.
