Last month, we reported that Xiaomi would be coming back to the Philippines and opening its first official store in February. We also said that the top name in the second-largest smartphone market would sell devices online through Lazada and Shopee’s local retail sites.
Now, it can be said with certainty that you can buy authorized Xiaomi products online on Lazada Philippines very soon. We stumbled upon Xiaomi’s in-store shop earlier today, and though it only has a handful of phones on display, you can bet that more are on the way.
Unfortunately, you can’t purchase any of the listed phones online, as of this morning. Our guess is that Xiaomi is still bulking up its inventory, which could take days or longer depending on a number of factors.
Also: None of the newer models like the Xiaomi Redmi 5, Redmi 5 Plus, and Redmi Note 5 Pro have been included in the initial offering. If you’ve been waiting for the near-full-screen Mi Mix 2 to officially arrive here, your patience has paid off.
Here’s the list of Xiaomi devices officially available online:
- Xiaomi Redmi 4X – P6,790 (3GB RAM, 32GB ROM) – P6,790 ($130)
- Xiaomi Mi A1 (4GB RAM, 64GB ROM) – P10,990 ($211)
- Xiaomi Mi Max 2 (4GB RAM, 64GB ROM) – P12,990 ($250)
- Xiaomi Mi 6 (6GB RAM 64GB ROM) – P21,990 ($423)
- Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 (6GB RAM, 64GB ROM) – P25,490 ($490)
As expected, all devices in the store arrive with a year of warranty coverage.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on this story as it develops, so stay tuned.
