Xiaomi to enter Philippine market this year

Popular Chinese consumer electronics company, Xiaomi, has announced that it is set to introduce its products to ten new markets, including the Philippines, this 2014.


The countries mentioned are Malaysia, Philippines, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Russia, Turkey, Brazil, and Mexico. The decision will surely help boost Xiaomi’s sales outside China with a goal of 100 million phones in 2015.

“You can certainly call this an acceleration,” Xiaomi President and co-founder Bin Lin said in an interview. “It’s our mission and our belief that this model should be able to achieve some level of success outside of China.”

Xiaomi is well known for producing smartphones with competitive specs and aggressive price tags. Xiaomi’s current smartphone lineup includes the Snapdragon 800-powered flagship Mi 3 which costs S$419 (Php15,000), the octa-core phablet Redmi Note, and the quad-core Redmi Dual SIM which costs S$169 (Php6,000).

    They would make a killing in our market. I just got my MI3 from China to replace my S4 :) Great specs and ergonomics at an even better price (64GB at 14K+)

    I’ve had enough of xiaomi. They use false marketing and hype their products so much. What they do is announce they will be selling thousands of units at a certain time but the truth is they’re only selling a few. So what happens is about 3 minutes after they open the sales page in their website, phones will be sold out so people will think the demand is very high. It’s very annoying for people who simply want to buy without the hype.
