    Does this release in India mean that there will be other 4g bands supported? Or is this exactly the same phone as in China?

      Could be the same model, coz it supported LTE Band 40 2300Mhz which is used in India

        Yeah, unfortunately, India as another market isn’t one that’s going to be bringing you a device any more likely to work in, for instance, the US. I would love to see Xiaomi coming to US and Europe direct in the near future, but sometimes I have to remind myself they are only just rolling up on 6 years old.

          they can not come directlly in EU and USA due licencing problems.

            I understand they currently have certain barriers to entry. Obviously those are all in theory, and hopefully one day in practice, surmountable. It’s just a question of when they are looking to do it, and how long term their current plans are.
