Xiaomi recently confirmed to Financial Express Online that it will ensure equal allocation of stock across online and offline channels.
“We typically plan to do 50-50% business each across both channels pretty much across the entire portfolio that we have and the Redmi Note 11T 5G is no exception,” Xiaomi India Chief Operating Officer Muralikrishnan B had said.
Its predecessor, the Redmi Note 10T 5G will “continue to run through its lifecycle” even as the “majority of the volume going forward will be Redmi Note 11T 5G.”
