Xiaomi announced their new vending machine that will allow the customer to purchase any Xiaomi smartphone or/and accessories in just a few minutes. Today, on May 13, the company has announced that it will plant Xiaomi Mi Express Kiosks across India. Seems the company is looking forward to more growth of the company by giving a quick facility to buy a new smartphone from Kiosks located within a few kilometers from the customer’s home.
The Indian smartphone market continuously leading by Xiaomi when it comes to the mid-range devices. With the Mi Express Kiosks, the customer now can buy Xiaomi product quickly. During the launch of this new Kisosk, the company said that this new strategy should help to eliminate the extra cost on the product. And according to their plan, the installation will start from the metro cities and later Xiaomi might expand it to other cities.
To purchase a product using Mi Express Kiosks, a customer can use any mode of payment such as credit cards, debit cards, cash. Even they can use UPI payment mode. However, we are not aware if there will be an option for EMI. As of now, the Kiosks will be available in metro cities and once it will be started, anyone can locate them by going on Mi.com website.
Xiaomi has also shared installment locations which include airports, metro stations, and shopping malls.
All the technology equipping Mi Express Kiosks has been researched and developed in India.
It seems Xiaomi is planning to expand the offline market more as possible in India. People are broadly using Xiaomi products. Take recently launched Redmi Note 7 Pro for an example. Because of the flash sale strategy, still, after two months of launch, some people didn’t get hands on it.
