Xiaomi products get a price hike in Malaysia


The falling value of the Malaysian Ringgit has meant that prices of Xiaomi products are set to increase in the country.

Xiaomi has stated that it’s products, including power banks, phones, the popular Mi Band, etc. will be costlier starting 12PM local time on October 20th.

The price hike ranges between 10-20% for most of the products. The Xiaomi Mi Note and the Mi 4i however do not get any increase in the pricing.

    It’s happening all over Asia not just in Malaysia and not just with Xiaomi. Asia’s biggest markets are in serious trouble and it all begins with China. When the Yaun struggles, Southeast Asia follows suit.

        It’s true in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and a few others. China has invested so much in these countries, when their economy suffers everyone elses does to.
