Just a few months ago, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 2 and Redmi Note 2 Prime in China but the phone didn’t made their way to India because they run on Mediatek processor and due to a legal dispute, Xiaomi can’t launch Mediatek powered phones in India. We are pretty sure the Indian consumers want to get the Redmi Note 3 in their pockets but as it again runs on a Mediatek powered SoC, it may not turn to Indian markets.

However, nothing is official as of now, any strategic partnerships or relaunching the phone with a Snapdragon powered processor may allow it an entry in the Indian market.
