Just as when the dust was settling down — out of nowhere — Vatsal Impex has slashed the price of selected Xiaomi phones in Nepal. The move comes after Teletalk Pvt. Ltd announced the sales of Xiaomi’s mid-range phone at a competitive price.
The newly revamped price list from Vatsal Impex includes mid-range phones with much lesser price than usual. Let’s have a look at the price list below and compare it with Teletalk’s price. Bear in mind, all these phones are covered with the company’s added benefit of 1 year insurance.
|MODEL||New Price (Vatsal)||New Price (Teletalk)|
|REDMI 5 (2+16GB)||Rs. 15,999||N/A|
|REDMI 5 (3+32GB)||Rs. 17,999||N/A|
|REDMI 5 PLUS (3+32GB)||Rs. 19,999||Rs. 18,999|
|REDMI 5 PLUS (4+64GB)||Rs. 22,999||Rs. 22,999|
|REDMI NOTE 4 (3+32GB)||Rs. 18,999||Rs. 18,999|
|REDMI NOTE 4 (4+64GB)||Rs. 20,999||N/A|
|REDMI NOTE 5A (2+16GB)||Rs. 13,999||Rs. 13,999|

|Mi A1 (4+32GB)||Rs. 22,999||Rs. 22,999|
|Mi A1 (4+64GB)||Rs. 24,499||Rs. 24,999|
|REDMI 5A (2+16GB)||Rs. 11,999||Rs. 11,999|
|REDMI 4A (2+16GB)||Rs. 11,499||Rs. 12,999|
|REDMI 4A (2+32GB)||Rs. 12,999||N/A|
|REDMI 3S PRIME (3+32GB)||Rs. 15,499||N/A|
|REDMI 4X (2+16GB)||Rs. 14,999||Rs. 16,999|
|REDMI 4X (3+32GB)||Rs. 15,999||N/A|
Prices above, when compared, are somewhat similar to Teletalk’s offering, while phones like Redmi 4X has been offered for the considerably low price than usual. Although Vatsal could and should have already implemented the current pricing way before, it’s still a welcome change for users who have been raising their voice against the high prices.
It looks like competitiveness has led the company to lower the price of Xiaomi phones in Nepal. And hopefully, such healthy competition will lead consumers to a future where Xiaomi phones could be as affordable as it is in Indian and Chinese markets. Likewise, the move could also benefit distributor as a whole. A win-win situation for both parties? Maybe.
