[Update] DiGi have now opened a registration of interest (ROI) for the Xiaomi Mi 3. More below.
As speculated late last week, DiGi have now confirmed that they will be among the first local service providers in Malaysia to take pre orders for the Xiaomi Mi3 on the 27th May 2014, just a week after the limited launch on Xiaomi’s website. The Xiaomi Mi3 will be available with the DiGi SmartPlan on a 24-month contract.
Christian Thrane, DiGi’s Chief Marketing Officer said partnering with Xiaomi, is part of DiGi’s commitment to bring internet to more people by expanding its range of smartphones catering to different segment groups.
“Today, many more Malaysians are accessing the Internet through their mobile phones. We are very excited to work with Xiaomi to bring this sought-after smartphone to our customers. By combining the right device, with the right plan together with good usage experience, we are empowering more Malaysians to benefit from access to the internet,” said Thrane.
Hugo Barra, Vice President of Xiaomi Global added, “Mi 3 is our highest performing smartphone, consistently ranked at the top of industry benchmarks since we launched it. Our Android-based platform — MIUI — designed with the help of our user community, is a live operating system with weekly software updates. MIUI is incredibly intuitive while at the same time offers power users a high degree of customisation. We are pleased to partner with DiGi to give their 11 million customers easy access to the internet through the Mi 3.”
