Xiaomi MI3

Along with nine other countries, the Philippines is the next market to be tapped by burgeoning smartphone maker Xiaomi.

While Xiaomi isn’t a household name in the country (yet), it is a popular smartphone brand in its home market of China. Such popularity has even allowed the company to surpass Apple in sales. Its product portfolio mostly comprises high-end devices that are sold at relatively affordable prices. Recent notable releases include the Singapore-bound Xiaomi Redmi, the upcoming phablet Redmi Note, and last year’s Snapdragon-powered Mi2S and flagship Mi3.

The rest of the countries being targeted by Xiaomi include India, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Turkey. The company’s expansion is expected to boost its sales, estimated to be 100 million phones in 2015.

  1. May nagtitinda sa sulit ng ganitong brand pero mahal pa rin. Kung ang presyo nito ay konti lang ang difference sa popular brand, baka di kagatin ng mamimili. Sana nga ibaba nila ng husto ang presyo.

  2. There has always been a notion that Chinese brands are of lower build quality. I hope Xiaomi will change that perception.

  3. Local brands better be ready for this. Even the big names like Apple, LG, Samsung are watching Xiaomi (Mi). Taking note of its business model and success.
    Whether Mi can can duplicate its success here is yet to be seen. But I’m willing to bet that it will.

    Whatever the outcome of its entry here. This year’s going to be the start of the branded Chinese phones invasion. Lenovo, Huawei, ZTE and lots of others are
    on there way, sending hIgh spec’d phones with low prices. The price war is heating up. That’s bad news for the local brands.

  4. Ive been waiting for this to happen I hope that Xiaomi will implement their super cheap pricing also here in our country
