Executed on Times OOH property, the brand leverages the longest line of Delhi metro, 38 stations covering 58.9 km to broadcast the new phone.


The battle for the best smartphone under Rs 25,000 in India has got a lot more intense now with the launch of the Redmi K50i. With the launch of the Redmi K50i, the company has marked the resurgence of the K-series in India nearly three years after the 2019 Redmi K20 series.

To capture the attention of this commuter, the brand recently launched its high-octane OOH campaign with the Delhi Metro Pink Line - the Garland line of Delhi metro. Executed in collaboration with Times OOH, the media owning firm handling branding rights for this premium property, this high impact campaign leveraged the longest line of Delhi metro, 38 stations covering 58.9 km to broadcast the new phone. With the strategic route under its belt, Xiaomi primarily aims to gain the attention of people who are known to travel on this route regularly. The USP of this line is that it reaches to most of the metro audiences in the city as it has 7 intersections across its entire route.

Campaign Details

A month-long campaign has been launched on multiple media formats offered in Pink Line Metro including complete External Wrap, 72 Display Panels available inside the metro trains, and information display screens that disseminate important information to passengers, grabbing repetitive eyeballs of the passengers traveling in the metro train. The complete internal and external branding has been executed to provide the 360-degree experience of the new smartphone and its features to the metro passengers.

The DMRC Pink line was a stated choice for the brand as this line caters to the majority of the Youth audience traveling to South Campus, South Extension and Sarojini Nagar, Lajpat Nagar, South Extension and INA markets on a daily basis. Traveling from Majlis Park to Shiv Vihar stations, the DMRC Pink line metro train takes the brand visibility through 38 stations creating a long-standing presence for the brand catering to 2 lakh+ eyeballs daily. The Pink Line having maximum interchanges with almost all other major lines like Yellow, Blue, Green, Red, Orange and Violet add to the exposure of the brand.

In order to push the Live Extreme tagline, the creative has been designed in a similar manner giving out fast-paced racing, experiencing extreme turmoil and a high-tech feel to capture the minds of the metro passengers.
