Xiaomi has confirmed in a Facebook post by Global VP Hugo Barra that it is complying with a court order to suspend sales of all smartphones in India pending resolution of a patent infringement claim by Ericsson.
We have been forced to suspend sales in India until further notice due to an order passed by the Delhi High Court. As a law abiding company, we are investigating the matter carefully and assessing our legal options.
Our sincere apologies to all Indian Mi fans! Please rest assured that we’re doing all we can to revert the situation. We have greatly enjoyed our journey with you in India over the last 5 months and we firmly intend to continue it!
Xiaomi had earlier stated that it was “open to working with Ericsson to resolve this matter amicably.”
