Xiaomi launches Redmi smartphone for Singapore market


China-based smartphone maker Xiaomi is all set to step out of the local market for the very first time. Phone enthusiasts in Singapore can now get their hands on the new Redmi smartphone by Xiaomi starting from February 21, 2014. The company’s latest smartphone has been priced at 169 Singapore Dollars ($134).


So far, Redmi is the cheapest smartphone from the company, which is already known for offering quality devices in China at very affordable prices. Redmi fits the bill perfectly, being the cheapest and having the best features from the company.

The new Redmi smartphone features a 4.7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a 1.5 GHz MediaTek MT6589 ARM Cortex A7 quad-core processor with PowerVR SGX 544 graphics, as well as an 8-megapixel camera, 28 mm wide angle lens and dual SIM support. The device comes with the company’s custom version of Android, known as MIUI.

Other features of the smartphone include 1 GB of RAM with 4 GB of internal storage, in addition to support for microSD cards, USB support and connectivity options like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. The company is offering the phone in plenty of colors and designs. In 2013, the company hired former Google employee Hugo Barra to put the brand on the global map.
