As it turns out, the Xiaomi press conference from this morning also revealed the company’s vision with Malaysia. In an interview with HardwareZone Singapore, Xiaomi Global Vice President Hugo Barra has revealed that Malaysia has been selected as the next market in its global expansion, and will be expanding into the country “in the next two months”.
In addition, Barra also revealed that Xiaomi is planning to enter all markets in the Southeast Asian region, and it is currently studying where to set up operations in the region.
This should come as excellent news to Malaysians, especially considering Xiaomi’s portfolio of competitively-priced and compelling products. The Redmi, for example, offers just as much value for money as the Motorola Moto G; while the flagship Mi3 is touted as “the world’s fastest smartphone” with an Antutu benchmark score of over 36,000.
