Xiaomi India has announced that the prices of some of its products have been increased with immediate effect. And the reason behind the price hike of these Xiaomi products is because rupee value has depreciated against the dollar by nearly 15 per cent and which is why the input cost of the products has increased. In addition to Xiaomi, Realme CEO Madhav Sheth has also announced the price hike for two of the Realme phones including — the Realme C1 and the Realme 2. Surprisingly, the price of the Realme 2 Pro remains unchanged and will sell for its launch price of Rs 13,999 in India.
