Xiaomi India has announced the Mi Explorers program for the upcoming Redmi K20 Pro smartphone in the Indian market. The company has revealed that it has started the registration process for the Mi Explorer and is looking for 48 ‘explorers’.
From all the applicants, Xiaomi will shortlist 48 who will then complete missions and gather points, and eventually report back on the performance of the new phone to the company. The selected participants will have to sign an NDA not to leak any details about the phone, including images, screenshots, and other stuff.
All explorers will receive extra points based on the number of likes they received on social media, which will be the deciding factor in the final rankings. With such a program, Xiaomi offers an opportunity to its fans to be among the first ones to get a hands-on experience of its new phone.
It’s noteworthy that the Mi Explorers Program is only for nationals of India. The program was first started back in 2016 with the Redmi Note 3, promptly following the next year ahead of the Redmi Note 4 arrival. If you want to take part in this program, you can register for this year’s edition of Mi Explorers by going to the source link. The registration for the same is open till 22nd June 2019.
Xiaomi is all set to launch the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro smartphones in the Indian market next month, which the company is touting as “Flagship Killer 2.0”. The company has already started its marketing campaign and is taking the likes of OnePlus 7, which recently launched in India.
While the Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro are launching in other markets as the Mi 9T and Mi 9T Pro, the company will be launching the devices under the same moniker as the Chinese market. Xiaomi is expected to price the smartphones very aggressively in the Indian market.
