Since releasing its first smartphone in 2011, Xiaomi has quickly grown to become the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. The Chinese brand has made a name for itself in Asia and mainland Europe, and now it has arrived in Ireland.
Xiaomi is known for creating high-quality devices at really affordable prices, but up until now, Irish fans of the brand had to import the devices to Ireland. But from today, Xiaomi is available exclusively with Three Ireland. This is great news for any tech fan who wants easy access to high-spec devices that don’t break the bank.
(Oh, and if you’re wondering how to pronounce Xiaomi…it’s like ‘shower me’, without the r!)
Xiaomi is releasing three new devices with Three – the Redmi 6, the Redmi Note 5 and their flagship phone, the Mi Mix 2S. As well as smartphones, Xiaomi is also known for their ‘eco products’, and we’re delighted to announce that some of these products will be stocked in select Three stores. Watch out for their amazing electric scooter!
Read on to find out more about these incredible new phones.
Xiaomi Redmi 6
Xiaomi Redmi 6
The Xiaomi Redmi 6 is a fantastic smartphone that covers all the bases – style, speed and functionality. It comes with an 18:9 Full HD screen and an excellent AI dual camera. The standout feature of the camera is its AI-powered portrait mode – the Beautify setting automatically blurs the background of photos to create perfect portraits.
The Redmi 6 also comes with a super octa-core processor that takes operational efficiency to the next level. Produced with 12nm process technology, the phone is less energy intensive and has more power to multitask.
The Redmi Note 5 delivers incredibly high performance with some excellent features. The Note 5 is the fastest of Xiaomi’s Redmi range – due to its impressive Snapdragon 636 processor which greatly improves overall performance and power efficiency. The smartphone also boasts insanely good battery life thanks to its 4000mAh high-capacity battery.
And that’s not all. The Redmi Note 5 comes with a dual camera (12MP + 5MP) which delivers high-quality, clear images, even in low lighting. The phone’s front camera packs 13 megapixels as well as a 4500k selfie light – which means your Instagram profile picture will never look better!
The Mi Mix 2S is one of Xiaomi’s top phones – and it’s easy to see why. The Mi Mix 2S has a full HD 5.99” screen display, combined with a curved, ceramic design. The smartphone runs on Snapdragon’s 435 processor – Qualcomm’s flagship processor of the year – and has 6GB of RAM and up to 64GB of storage. This means the phone will work faster and last longer, all with lower power consumption and heat production. The Mi Mix 2S also supports wireless charging.
The Mi Mix 2S offers exceptional photo quality. Its 12MP dual camera setup features a dual pixel autofocus which dramatically improves focus speeds, even in low light conditions. The camera also has AI scene detection – optimising settings for any and every situation to ensure your photos look phenomenal.
On top of offering high-spec phones at incredibly affordable prices, Xiaomi is also bringing some of its ECO products to Three. Our retail stores will be stocking a range of Xiaomi accessories, including fitness trackers, smartwatches, headphones, speakers and the awesome Xiaomi electric scooter.
