The Xiaomi Mi A2 will be coming to Malaysia very soon. If you’re wondering how much it will cost when it arrives, we now have a glimpse of the Malaysian pricing on its official online store.
According to a listing on the Mi Store at Lazada, the Mi A2 with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage is officially priced at RM1,199. All 3 colours are listed – blue, black and gold.
Xiaomi will be arranging a local media briefing at the end of the month and with this product listing, it’s a sign that Malaysians will be able to order official units very soon. For those who can’t wait, retailer Mobile2Go is offering imported units at RM928 for the base 4GB RAM + 32GB storage option.
At RM1,199 for the highest spec, the Mi A2 is going head to head with the likes of the ASUS ZenFone 5 and Huawei Nova 3i that are priced at RM1,299 and RM1,249 respectively. It isn’t clear if Xiaomi Malaysia will be introducing the other lower spec variants – 4GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. The closest “stock Android” contender would be the ASUS ZenFone Max Pro 6GB RAM + 64GB storage version that’s priced at RM999. At the moment, it isn’t on sale in Malaysia yet.
