Chinese handset major Xiaomi on Wednesday launched its "crowdfunding" platform to India through which it will sell a select range of "innovation-driven products". You can get the delivery of the product within the committed timeline or you get your money back.

Some of the other smartphone that can be purchased are Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, Mi Max 2, Redmi 4, Redmi Y1, Redmi Y1 Lite and Redmi 5A.

So, are you supporting any of the Xiaomi products? Whereas, the tripod selfie stick does exactly what it says, its a combination of a tripod and a selfie stick. The travel special package comprises of Mi Travel Backpack + Selfie-stick while the power combo pack includes Mi USB Cable 80cm + India Standard Adapter 9V. The Mi Bluetooth Audio Receiver is now available via crowdsourcing for a price of Rs 999. The wireless Bluetooth device comes with a single key that lets the users turn on the earphones, connect to Bluetooth, play and pause music and answer calls.

Ideally, the Mi A1 should be getting ready to receive April's Android security patch, but from the look of things, it seems it might take several weeks before this month's patch rolls out to the phone.

This update comes with quick search options, the option to resume interrupted transfers in the Mi Mover app without starting over, an optimised browser kernel, new format for floating notifications in the landscape mode, a revamped start page, sound recording options for the screen recorder app and more.
