NEW DELHI: In a bid to expand its customer base through offline retail channels, Xiaomi has announced its partnership with Big Bazaar for the sales of its smartphones. The first two handsets that will be made available for offline use are the Redmi 4 and Redmi Note 4, according to media reports.

Xiaomi India managing director and global VP, Manu Kumar Jain, confirmed the news on Twitter. Jain tweeted that Xiaomi India has partnered with Big Bazaar's over 240 stores to sell the two handsets in the festive period. He also mentioned that no other handset has been sold by the supermarket ever. Furthermore, it was mentioned that Mi Fans can buy the two smartphones at special prices at Big Bazaar Stores. The smartphones will also be made available at No Cost EMI options and will come with some offers on ICICI Bank cards.

It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi offline market push comes almost a month after OnePlus announced its entry in the offline market space in India. The Chinese tech firm chose Croma as its offline retailer for OnePlus devices. Vikas Agarwal, general manager, India, revealed the news to Gadgets Now in a telephonic interview. It has made the OnePlus 5 available in the stores.

Agarwal said that OnePlus will be making its devices available at Croma across 10 tier-1 cities as a part of phase-1. The venues include Devarc Mall in Ahmedabad, Belapur, Lower Parel Phoenix Mall and Vasundhara (Juhu) in Mumbai, Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad, Pimpri in Pune, South Ex and DLF Mega Mall in Delhi NCR and Indraprastha in Bangalore.

The aim behind the move, as mentioned by the company's India general manager, is to complement their online presence. "While we continue to expand through kiosks and opening Experience Stores in large cities, we wanted to create more such touchpoints in other cities as well," he said.
