Xiaomi Fans who live outside Metro Manila now have a chance, and an even more convenient way to shop for the latest Mi products as Xiaomi officially opened its Shopee store.
Now around 11 million Shopee users in the Philippines have access to a wide variety of official Xiaomi products, including the company’s popular range of smartphones and ecosystem products at very competitive prices.
The partnership with Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, was formally announced last Friday at the New World Hotel in Makati.
To celebrate the launch of the Xiaomi Official Store, the popular 16GB model Redmi 5 will be exclusively sold online on Shopee at a special price of 5,990 PHP, with 10% Shopee coins cashback, through an exclusive flash sale on 4 April.
Users who pre-register their interest from 23 to 31 March will receive a Php250 Xiaomi voucher, which can be used to “offset the purchase of all accessories and ecosystem products on the Xiaomi Official Store.
Terence Pang, Chief Operating Officer, Shopee said, “In the past few years we have witnessed tremendous growth in the number of Filipino consumers purchasing electronics, and in particular, smartphones, online. In the Philippines, electronics is one of the leading product categories sold online with a total market volume of USD 543 million in January 2018; and is also one of the top performing categories on Shopee. We are delighted to partner with Xiaomi, a global technology leader, to provide a greater variety of choices for consumers and to strengthen our position in the electronics category.”
Redmi 5 is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450. The smartphone comes with Dual Micro-SIM, with 5.7-inch Full Screen display at an 18:9 aspect ratio which further equipped with high capacity battery at 3300 mAh. The 12MP rear camera has a 1.25-micron pixel size and phase detection autofocus, and the front-facing 5MP comes with an LED Selfie light that will enable you to take great selfies even better in low-light conditions.
“We are excited to partner with Shopee, one of the leading e-commerce platforms in the region that has steady growth and potential. The Philippines’ e-commerce market is expected to see high growth this year, and we are confident with the strategic partnership with Shopee, it will extend our reach and highlight our commitment to continue to bring more innovative products into the market and provide greater access to technology for more Filipinos,” said John Chen, Regional Director (SEA Region), Xiaomi.
