Xiaomi is back in the Philippines

We got confirmation from three (3) independent sources that Xiaomi is indeed back in the Philippines. This is after we met with the Xiaomi Global representative in Barcelona during MWC where they hinted they will soon be back in the country (that was fast).

This week, individuals close to the new official Xiaomi distributor for the Philippines have been asking around for people interested in joining the local team. While we cannot yet verify the local partner (distributor), we ‘ve already gotten details of the first units they will be releasing in the Philippines.

Here’s the list of devices and their SRPs:

Redmi 4a (2GB/16GB) – Php5,400
Redmi 4a (2GB/32GB) – Php5,900
Redmi Note 3 (3GB/32GB0 – Php8,500
Xiaomi Mi Note 2 (6GB/128GB) – Php26,000
Xiaomi Mi Mix 18K Premium (6GB/256GB) – Php34,000

You should be seeing the warrantied devices in retail stores any one of these days. No word yet though on when the Mi6 will be available.

Update: We received additional information after this article was published. The distributor is Grimalkin which is a part of the Star Paper Group based in Quezon City. They will open a concept store sometime in late July or August. However, some Xiaomi devices are already in retail stores and have official Xiaomi warranty.

Update 2: Here is the list of official Xiaomi products that are sold in the Philippines.

    I saw may mga demo units na din ng 4a at note 3 sa intogadgets trinoma kaso di din nila alam sino distributor pero official na daw yan.

  5. Tim says:

    I believe this is their facebook page (units offered and prices mentioned are exactly the same):


    They also sell MiHome items.

    From the physical address mentioned in the Facebook page, distributor is Star Paper Corporation. From their webpage, they are the ones who also distribute Mongol, Sharpie, Parker, and Victorinox brands (among others) here in the Philippines.

    Medyo mahal parin, hindi gaya ng dating Mi Ph ???? Malaki parin taas kaysa sa Yuan conversion. But good a price na.

    • Tim says:

      Actually, prices are almost at par with official Mi sellers at our neighboring countries.

      In Singapore, the official Redmi 4A 32gb sells at SG$169 — which is a little more than P6k.
      In Hong Kong, official Redmi Note 3 is at HK$1199, which is ~P7,700, for the Mi Note 2, it sells at HK$3999, which is ~P25.7k
      In Taiwan, official Mi Note 2 sells for NT$16999, which is ~P27.9k

      …and heck, they even brought here the Mi Mix, which is not officially available in these three countries (based from the mi.com sites). Seems like changing times for Xiaomi’s support in our country.

    kamusta naman kaya ang service at warranty?

  8. xiomai says:

    August pa pala :/ saan mkikita yung retail store na yun may may Xiaomi warranty?

  9. Tangina sobrang gago

    Magkakaroon na ng Redmi Note 5. Benta niyo Redmi Note 3 WTF?

    • Tim says:

      Let’s see first kung dadalhin nila dito. The Redmi Note 4x was just released lang naman last Feb (this is essentially the global version of Redmi Note 4). Pag hindi nila yan dalhin dito, then baka tama ka at magsasara nga uli sila kasi di hamak na mas malaki ang market nila sa sub-P10k phones. Rich people will still buy the S8 or iPhone 7 instead of the Mi Note 2 or Mi Mix.

  10. Bah says:

    Were they even here?

  11. el gato says:

    boss abe, yung “However, some Xiaomi devices are already in retail stores and have official Xiaomi warranty.”, saan po ang official reseller stores outside metro manila?

    • Mi says:

      Go to intogadgets website and look for their branches outside MM and see if Mi phones are already there

  12. Vince the Great says:

    Sana available din ang Note 3 Pro. I would honestly get that one over the Mi 4 or Mi 4x.

  13. tae says:

    Xiaomi made a mistake of leaving the philippines, they paid for it dearly, with Oppo and Vivo making a killing. Once Xiaomi returns, expect Oppo, Vivo and the others to bleed.

  14. The G says:

    They left without no further notice way back July 2016. Leaving supposed-to-be loyal customers BEHIND and LOST in their closed service centers without further announcements. Acer had pulled-out their mobile units before BUT with a PUBLIC NOTICE.

    Now they are back for what? Asus, Vivo, Oppo units reigns with the best budget quality phones. With Cherry Mobile, SKK, and Firefly following the trail of offering budget friendly-high specs mobile phone line-up.

    ” CHINESE company be like.”
    Go BACK to your beloved Malaysian, Indonesian, and Indians Xiaomi lovers. We don’t actually need you here!
