Keeping with great news, Mobile In Africa (MIA), the official distributor of Xiaomi in South Africa has just announced that they will be lowering the price of the Mi 4 and increasing the storage on the RedMi 2.
“In keeping with our promise to provide South Africans with the best possible technology at the most incredible prices, we have decided to increase the storage of Redmi 2 from 8GB to 16GB, and lower the price of Mi 4 from R3,999 to R3,799”, said RJ van Spaandonk, President of MIA. “This is even more remarkable given that the ZAR has deteriorated by more than 10% against the USD since we released pricing in August of this year.”
At these price points, both Redmi 2 and Mi 4 present unbeatable value for South Africans. “Even if other reputable brands match Xiaomi’s specifications, their smartphones are often between 25% and 75% more expensive”, said Kerry Taoushiani, the Group’s Marketing Executive.
The dual-SIM, LTE-ready Redmi 2 features a fully laminated 4.7-inch HD screen that displays vibrant colours, and runs on the Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 410 Quad-core 1.2GHz processor. It comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera that has an aperture of f/2.2 for excellent low-light performance.
Lauded for its gorgeous design, Mi 4 is a flagship device featuring a precisely engineered stainless steel frame. It has a 5” IPS Full HD display that is incredibly sharp, and runs on the Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 801 2.5GHz processor. With a 13MP ƒ/1.8 rear camera and a front-facing 8MP camera, Mi 4 takes beautiful pictures and is great for selfies.
