Xiaomi is finally making the black and gold color options of the Mi 5 available in India. The black variant will be up for sale starting later today, and will no longer be limited to Xiaomi's own website as retailers Amazon and Flipkart are set to start selling the handset.

The gold option doesn't have a specific launch date yet, with Xiaomi only saying that it'll be available shortly. While the Mi 5 offers a lot of value for ₹25,000, more recent launches like the OnePlus 3 have raised the bar in the mid-range segment.
