Looking for your next affordable smartphone from Xiaomi? You can’t go wrong with the Mi 5X smartphone.
Launched earlier this month, the new mid-range smartphone is bringing back the Xiaomi craze in China, selling over 300,000 units on the first day of its launch.
It’s not that surprising since the Mi 5X is powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor, dual rear cameras, 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, beating similar competing smartphones same category with its low price – a mere ¥1,499 (est.~ S$306).
It is such a well-featured phone that Google is reportedly working with Xiaomi to create a new phone based on the Mi 5X.
Which brings us to the good news, you can now get the same phone at around the same price. The Mi 5X smartphone is yours for just $319 this week when you purchase from online marketplace Shopee and if you have a DBS Debit or Credit Card, enter promo code DBSMALL10 to enjoy a further $10 discount!
That brings down the price to $309 with free shipping included, close (if not better) to the retail price in China without taking into account the shipping fees and currency exchange rate if you were to buy from Xiaomi China direct.
There’s a risk though. The phone won’t come with an official warranty, since Xiaomi Singapore doesn’t sell this phone yet. It will, however, come with a 1-month warranty from the seller on top of the 15-day free return from Shopee.
That’s not all. Shopee is also giving a lowest-price guarantee (or 1.5x your money back) on two other gadgets – Plantronics BackBeat Fit Bluetooth Wireless Earphones and Xiaomi Mi Max 2 smartphone. You can use the DBS promo code on them as well.
