Mi Home is what Xiaomi calls its official stores, and this is the first time consumers will be able to get their hands on Mi products offline.
Alongside the Mi Home, Xiaomi also launched the Redmi 3S and the Mi Band 2. The S$219 smartphone comes Qualcomm Snapdragon 430-powered, with a 13MP camera, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage while, the S$50 Mi Band 2 is now IP67 certified and fitted with an OLED display that’s activated with a tap of your finger. Even with a display, it will last up to 20 days on a single charge to track your fitness information like heart rate and steps taken.
Mi casa es su casa and in this case, Xiaomi’s Mi Home is operated by ECS, also a company that distributes the Mi Pad in Malaysia. According to comments on Mi Singapore’s Facebook page, the Mi Drone and Mi Notebook Air are also on display, but not available for sale. We know you're bummed, but hey, at least you get to try them out and get them elsewhere after.
As for those who still prefer to get their Mi products online, Lazada is now home to Xiaomi’s official online store while the Xiaomi Singapore site will serve as a space for announcements. This shift in focus comes as Xiaomi trains its global expansion sights on the US, with the company making the Mi Box official there earlier this week.
For those looking to visit, the Mi Home is located at Suntec City Mall, #02-337. It’s open every day from 11am to 9pm.
