“On average, in India, users tend to change their devices every year and the value of the phone depreciates right after the purchase of the device,” says Xiaomi. It seems true indeed, given the high sales volumes all smartphone brands are pushing, even with an ongoing pandemic-induced economic depression. Hence, buyback programs are a good way to keep the cash inflow intact and Xiaomi has just announced one, called the Mi Smart Upgrade.

All these values are eligible from the date of purchase and final billing. Users can also get an assured buyback value of 40 percent of the suggested retail price even after the warranty expires till 15 months from the date of purchase of the old device. Xiaomi says that users can purchase the buyback options starting at the price point of Rs 399 for affordable devices such as the Redmi 9 Prime.
