As a quick recap, Xiaomi is a brand loved by many Android fans for their bang-per-buck offerings. They were the most popular "internet only" smartphone maker in the country during the early days of Lazada.
However, due to "unknown" reasons, Xiaomi's last official phone release here is the Mi4i last 2015. Since then, the brand failed release any other devices in PH. As a result, interested customers may only buy Xiaomi devices illegally on grey market w/ no official warranty and proper product support.
Going back, our credible source stated that they're currently in the middle of negotiations to officially bring this iconic Android smartphone brand in the Philippines. It'll be complete with all the legal documentations and clearances.
The new Xiaomi group is planning to put Kiosk in Metro Manila first and might offer the Redmi 4A first.
Yes, it's true. Xiaomi is re-entering the PH market with a new, more positive local distributor. We PH mods are currently in talks with the new management for future partnership and integration between the distributors and the forum community. Stay tuned!
