Xiaomi has made available its Mi products in retail stores across the Philippines, including in Cebu. The company said the offline availability of their products will make it more convenient for Mi fans to easily get their hands on Mi products such as Redmi 2 and Mi Pad. Mi products were previously available only via online purchases with Lazada.
Mi products will now be sold at over 200 locations nationwide, including MemoXpress, Silicon Valley and PC Express stores. More stores will be added gradually, Xiaomi said in a press statement.
Among the company’s products is the Redmi 2, which sells for P5,999. The Redmi 2 features a 4.7-inch HD display and runs on a quad-core 64-bit Snapdragon 410 processor for faster and more powerful performance. With dual SIM, dual standby, users won’t have to manually switch SIM cards around with data support on both slots. The 8-megapixel rear camera on Redmi 2 features a 28-mm wide angle lens that is great for capturing photos, while the 2-megapixel front camera supports 720p video recording.
All Mi products will continue to be available online on Lazada Philippines. The suggested retail prices of Mi products at the retail stores will be the same as the online prices. This allows Mi fans to pick the most convenient way of purchasing their desired products, the company said.
