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.
