The 16GB version of the device will retail for RM889 (about $277) unlocked, and will ship with a brand new Malaysia-themed skin for its MIUI firmware. Singapore also got its own MIUI skin when Xiaomi launched the Redmi there earlier this year, so it looks like Mi fans can get excited for some “collect ‘em all” goodness as the company expands across Asia.
The company added that the Redmi 1s, the upgraded version of its low-mid tier smartphone, will make its way to the island country in a month’s time.
Where will Xiaomi head next? Beyond other markets in Southeast Asia, the company hopes to hit India, Russia, Turkey, Mexico, and Brazil by the end of the year.
