Continuing its expansion is Xiaomi; after announcing plans for Africa, the company has made official the Redmi Note 2 in a market it had been operating in for a while — Malaysia.
The Redmi Note 2 came out a while back, and caused ripples in the smartphone industry with what it had on offer. The Helio X10 SoC that it ships with was only seen on high-end phones prior to the Redmi Note 2, something that made the device an instant hit with buyers in China.
The Redmi Note 2 will sell for an attractive price of RM649 or roughly $150 in Malaysia, which I’d say is a great price to pay for the phone.
