It looks like we have two “official” Xiaomi Facebook pages in the Philippines.
Yesterday, we reported that Xiaomi is back in the country under the name Mi Home PH. However, another Facebook page with the name Mi Philippines is claiming that they are the “official and sole” partner of Xiaomi here in PH.
The Mi Philippines page is apparently under Grimalkin Corporation, a company under the Star Paper Corporation. The said account is a real online shop where users can directly purchase through the Facebook page via webform. On the other hand, Mi Home PH is only classified as a support page.
Based on the report from Unbox, Mi Philippines said that Xiaomi Headquarters already confirmed that the Mi Home PH page is fake. Although we cannot confirm it until Xiaomi releases an official statement. Furthermore, there had been rumors that Star Paper has an involvement on Xiaomi’s return in the Philippines. With that, it looks like Mi Philippines’ claim has a more believable stand on this one.
As of the moment, it is unclear if the launching of a physical store in SM North EDSA is true.
But then again, we can never be really sure until we hear it directly from Xiaomi. For now, you might want to be extra cautious when purchasing a Xiaomi Product.
