Question for Xiaomi fans

Recommended Posts

Xiaomi has announced the release of the Mimax 3 phone and Mipad 4 tablet in China.

Based on past product releases, how soon will they be available in Thailand?

Does Xiaomi have a support/sales office in Thailand?

Thanks in advance for any information!

They do no localize each and every product for the Thailand market, so it's challenging to determine which models they might choose to localize, and thus you may have to wait for some sort of local launch. I wouldn't expect the tablet, but maybe the MiMax 3 is probably a candidate.

 

You can always buy grey-market product, both here and from online retailers in other countries.

 

Xiaomi has beefed up their direct sales and support efforts in Thailand.

 

They have ~ seven Mi shops in various malls, primarily in the metro Bangkok area. And a shopfront on Lazada, and shelves with other phone retailers.

Thanks for the information, it is very helpful.

I will watch for them on Lazada, hope I don't have to venture into aliexpress land.

Well Lazada dont even have the Mi Max 2 on the official Xiaomi store, any other seller will be buying them grey market anyway so you may aswell go Aliexpress land and you will probably pay less.

 

I have had the Mi Max 1 and 2 and they are great phones with a great battery which goes up with every new model, unfortunately they seem to be very fragile when dropped as i have had 2 Mi Max 1's and 1 Mi Max 2 and All of them didnt last the accidental drop test :( So even though I really want the 3 Im wondering how tough that will be as thats an even bigger screen.

Hi all

 

Last year I bought a 2nd hand MiMax 1 from a friend, and was so impressed that I gave it to my son ( who still uses it ) and bought the Max 2, which I still like very much.

 

The Mi Max 3 will undoubtedly will be released soon, and I will most certainly check it out, and probably buy it... i love big phones and the Max 3 ticks all the boxes..

It looks good in early hands-on reviews.

 

Pre-orders available, with slight discounts, on sites like GearBest and Ali Express. ESD is 6 - 8 weeks, so if you need a phone soon maybe not the best option? Can't see it being officially available here much before then either.

Well I don't really need a new phone urgently but are thinking about selling my Samsung J7+ and get something else.

Some usage reviews (Mi A2, not the LITE variant) ding the battery and the camera, and the display.

Well I looked a bit more at the Mi max3 and it's actually looking pretty good, like the monster battery.

I could use that when offshore working and then the J7+ when home.

Will wait for some reviews to surface first.

Is there a Mi shop in Pattaya?

These new mid range Xiaomi phones are coming in a bit pricey, A2 300+ and MI Max 3 300+ should be in the early 200's for those.

Seems as the brand is picking up so are the prices!

What's wrong with samsung j7+ ? it's cheap and good except samsung pre-installed $hitwares.

Well there is nothing wrong with my j7+ but I was thinking about getting one those huge maxi phones for when working off-shore and likely keep the j7 for now and use it when home in Thailand.

After a first broken xiaomi screen I hesitate to buy more xiaomi products.

Samsung do not crack so easily.
