Just 8 minutes after the Xiaomi Redmi was put up for order, all the available stock was quickly snapped up by the customers. That was what happened last Friday in Singapore – the third foreign market to launch the Redmi after Hong Kong and Taiwan. This was rather astonishing since the Redmi is the first Android smartphone released by Xiaomi in Singapore, yet it was so well received by the customers.
Today, we understand that Singapore’s carrier Starhub will begin carrying the Redmi smartphone starting February 27th this week. The device will be available for free under certain mobile plans and is up for grab at S$169 outright without any contract.
So if you’re one of the lucky ones living in Singapore, then you’ll soon be able to lay your hands on the Redmi!
