Waiting for Xiaomi’s newest Android One phones? Good news: The Xiaomi Mi A2 (or Mi 6X in China) and Mi A2 Lite (or Redmi 6 Pro) have finally dropped at Mi Authorized Stores in the Philippines. Better yet, their prices are lower than first advertised.

Immediately after the two devices were launched at a press event in Spain almost three weeks ago, the company announced their pricing for the local market.

Competition must have something to do with the move to make the smartphones more affordable. Honor Philippines, for one, is offering its gaming-focused handset with Kirin 970 processor, the Honor Play, for only P15,990 ($301). We say it’s a good decision on Xiaomi’s part then.
