The Xiaomi Redmi Note has taken quite a long time to make its way into India, but it’s here nonetheless and is all set to go up for sale on December 2 for the first time. It will of course, be sold exclusively through Flipkart using the Chinese company’s famed flash sales model.

While the regular 3G version of the handset will be made available at Rs 8999, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G will be seen going for Rs 9999. However, the latter phone will begin its journey in India a little late, in the second half of December this year. It will come equipped with the MIUI ROM based on Android 4.4 KitKat and will run on a 1.6GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 processor.
