    This sd653 shud be the one launching in India soon, mid January. If Mi launches the base with 3gb/64gb storage version in India at cny 1225-1425 or 12k-14k inr, it cud be the greatest hit of 2017. Mi shud improve on camera though. Fingers crossed

      I think this should be in the region of 15-17K. they would not like to cannabalise their own Redmi Note 4 which would be around 12-14K with 32 gigs and 64 gigs variants thats why a price difference of 2K should be there.

    Snapdragon baby…yeah. Next need a Redmi pro SD version.

    Please add NFC

    • YES! It is a very important feature, and its absence can prove to be a deal-breaker for many. And that number is growing fast.

    • Sadly it won’t be that way, Yasir.
      Xiaomi have finally got the recognition they’ve worked their asses off for, from the Mix hype.
      They’ll really rake it in on the new devices.
      And not to forget that Chinese resellers add around 7-15% premium on fresh launched phones anyways. :/

        ah damn … forgot about the mix !

        should have known it was a clever move to get to rub shoulders with all the expensive brands
