Xiaomi has officially opened the doors of its second Authorised Mi Store at Suria KLCC, in partnership with CG Computers Sdn Bhd. During the event, the brand also launched two of its latest smartphones in Malaysia: the Mi MIX 2 and the Redmi Note 5A Prime.
Steven Shi, Head of Xiaomi South Pacific Region says: “The opening of another Authorized Mi Store in KLCC proves that we have great expectations for Xiaomi’s growth in Malaysia. We feel that the Malaysian market has great potential and we are also very excited to be announcing two new smartphones today that showcase Xiaomi’s commitment to being at the forefront of technological innovation while making these innovations affordable to the widest possible range of consumers.”
Being the evolution of the Mi MIX concept, the Mi MIX 2 heralded a turning point in the design of smartphones and pioneered the trend of full screen display smartphones. It is 11.9% smaller than its predecessor and has a 5.99-inch screen with a 18:9 full screen display for stunning imagery.
Jointly designed with Philippe Starck, Mi MIX 2 represents Xiaomi’s efforts in pushing ahead by using a ceramic back, featuring a four-sided curved design that transitions smoothly into the aluminium frame.
Pre-orders for the Mi MIX 2 starts on 11 November 2017 through a number of channels including Lazada and Authorised Mi Stores, where the official sale date will start on 16 November 2017.
As for the Redmi Note 5A Prime, the phone acts as Xiaomi’s first phone to boast of a selfie-light that pairs magnificently with its 16-megapixel front camera, ensuring selfies will turn out bright and clear even in challenging conditions. At its core, the Redmi Note 5A Prime features an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.
The Redmi Note 5A Prime also has a 2+1 card slot that makes room for a microSD card slot aside from its dual-SIM capabilities. At the back, there is a fingerprint sensor for added security. Available in Gold and Grey, the Redmi Note 5A Prime will be ready for purchase starting 11 November 2017.
