Xiaomi products we want to see in the Philippines
Xiaomi is set to launch its first authorized Mi Store in the Philippines this weekend, and just like you, we’re also excited to see what they have to offer. But while we’re waiting, here are the products we want to see in their stores soon.
It’s difficult to talk about Xiaomi and not mention its smartphones. The company has released a slew of devices last year which includes the Xiaomi Mi A1, the Redmi 5, and Redmi 5 Plus. Although these phones have already made its way here through other channels, we’d still like to see other Xiaomi smartphones like the Redmi 5A which was tipped to be part of the initial offering.
TVs and TV boxes
One of the products that Filipino consumers want to get their hands on is Xiaomi’s TVs and TV boxes. The Mi TVs come in different screen sizes from 32-inch to 65-inch, with sleek builds and attractive design. Perhaps its most compelling feature is its price tag as it starts at CNY 999 which roughly converts to Php8.2K. Let’s hope the price isn’t too far though if ever they are offered in the Philippines
As for the TV boxes, the Mi Box is one of the nicest looking Android TV boxes around and comes with its own remote. We’ve been using the Mi Box 3 for quite some time now and so far we enjoy every bit of it, but we hope they’ll also offer the Mi Box 4 and Mi Box 4c.
Xiaomi has also entered the laptop market with their Windows-powered Mi Notebooks. It’s hard not to notice the Mi Notebooks thanks to its premium build and a design that is reminiscent of Apple’s MacBooks. Specs and price are competitive as well with the 12.5-inch Mi Notebook Air going for CNY 3,599 (~Php30K) and the 15.6-inch Mi Notebook Pro for CNY 5,599 (~Php46K). We hope they can maintain the pricing as well if it becomes available in the Philippines.
Xiaomi has some interesting smart appliances in their arsenal like the Mi Robot Vacuum Cleaner. But they also have a smart air purifier, smart rice cooker, water purifier, humidifier, electric kettle, and projector capable of projecting a 150-inch screen.
Scooters and other cool stuff
If you want to travel short distances in style, Xiaomi offers electric scooters and folding bikes which are some of the most popular methods of transportation today.
If smartphone accessories are your thing, Xiaomi is also known for their power banks and headphones.
If you’re not that interested with gadgets, Xiaomi also offers lifestyle products like bags, suitcases, smart shoes, and plushies, to name a few.
And that is just some of the Xiaomi products we want to see in the Philippines. We’re not sure yet if all of these will arrive but we’re crossing our fingers that they do.
