Xiaomi Philippines Android Smartphones for Early 2018, Official Prices and Specs

On Saturday - February 17, 2018, Grimalkin Corporation - the leading official distributor of Xiaomi products in the Philippines - officially opened its first ever authorized reseller outlet of Mi devices in the country at the 4th Level of Trinoma Ayala Mall in Quezon City.

As I've shared in my previous post, I graced Xiaomi's invitation for this store opening and there, I got to see not just the excitement of Pinoy Mi Fans but also the full plethora of Xiaomi products that are now available in our country.

Inside the Xiaomi PH Store, I saw powerbanks, laptops, rice cookers, earphones, bags, and air purifiers, but perhaps the one product category that was best received by buyers was the company's Android smartphone series.

For those who are wondering which Mi Android handsets are now officially available in our country, I made this list of all Q1 2018 Xiaomi Smartphones - across all price echelons that are up for purchase at the authorized reseller outlet.
