Xiaomi will be announcing a couple of devices on 25 June and one of it is yet another mid-range smartphone. After introducing the Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi 5 Note series, the next device will be the Redmi 6 Pro. This is the first Redmi series to come with a notch display.
Xiaomi’s next Android One smartphone, the Mi A2 is expected to be based on the Mi 6X. Before their next Android One smartphone is revealed, it appears that there will be a cheaper version and it could be coming to Malaysia very soon.
The Mi 8 is Xiaomi’s latest flagship that comes with a notch and it features the world’s first dual-frequency GPS for greater accuracy. This flagship device was announced last week and if you can’t wait to get your hands on one, it’s now available in Malaysia.
Xiaomi’s top of the line full-screen flagship, the Mi MIX 2S is hitting Malaysia on the 1st of June. This is the upgraded version of the Mi MIX 2 that comes with a more powerful Snapdragon 845 processor and an AI-assisted dual-camera setup. For the budget conscious, you’ll be happy to know that it’s priced lower than the Mi MIX 2 at the time of launch.
Xiaomi has always been a low price leader when it comes to smartphones. When they first came to Malaysia, their RM36 10,400mAh power banks were the hottest items in town. Also not forgetting is the Xiaomi Mi 3, a flagship smartphone which you could get at only RM889.
The low pricing was made possible with its model of selling directly to customers online. Back then, there were no distributors or dealers involved and they don’t spend on marketing.
During the launch of the Mi 6X, Xiaomi has promised that they will cap its net profit margin to just 5%. That’s quite a remarkable pledge since Xiaomi has started expanding its presence with physical stores and have engaged with distributors at selected markets like Malaysia.
The official Mi Store on Lazada Malaysia has just added more Xiaomi products and accessories. If you’re looking for a pair of noise cancelling headphones for less than RM300, you can consider these two in-ear headphones from Xiaomi.
Xiaomi’s physical stores are opening in more locations throughout Malaysia. After the opening of its KLCC, IOI City Mall and Suria Sabah outlets, the next new dedicated Mi store will be opening at the largest mall in Malaysia next month.
The Redmi Note series has always been the defacto choice for anyone looking for a value for money smartphone under RM1,000. The next iteration, the Redmi Note 5 (also known as the Redmi Note 5 Pro in India) is finally making its way to more countries.
The device will be launching in Indonesia in the next two weeks and it is an indication that it could be hitting Malaysia very soon.
Xiaomi which started off as an online-centric e-commerce brand is continuing to grow its retail presence in Malaysia. After opening several Mi Premium stores located in Penang and the Klang Valley, they have just announced the opening of its first Mi physical store in East Malaysia.
Xiaomi has always been the king of value for money and when it comes to smartphones priced under RM1,000, it is hard not to recommend the Redmi Note 4. It offers top-notch specs and a decent build at a price that’s hard to beat. When the Redmi 5 Plus was introduced a couple of months back, the specs are roughly the same as the current Redmi Note 4.
For those looking for a proper upgrade, Xiaomi has officially announced its latest Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro. The event took place in India, which is Xiaomi’s biggest market outside of China.
