Many of you are probably wondering when the latest flagship from Xiaomi will enter our markets. We asked the official distributors of Xiaomi equipment for Slovakia and the Czech Republic directly.
Czech Republic confirmed
Shortly after the performance of Xiaomi Mi 9, we are official distributor for Xiaomi products sent emails asking questions about the availability and price of the new flagship in our markets. The information is still strict, but we learned something. We enclose statements:
"Hello, fromso we have only one information and that we will distribute the model. Within two to three months.
But in what versions and for how much we don't know yet.
Thanks again for your interest and have a nice day. ", official distributor of the Xiaomi brand for the Czech Republic.
The statement of the Czech distributor of the Xiaomi brand thus confirms the official availability of the Mi 9 model on the Czech market. We also learned that sales should start sometime between April / April and May / May.
Unfortunately, we have not yet learned the price. Not even which models will be available on the Czech market. But one thing is certain - at a minimum basic version with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB memory will be sold.
And what about Slovakia?
In the case of Slovak distribution, the information is even stricter. The distributor's answer to our question is as follows:
"Hello, we currently have no official / unofficial information about the arrival of the Mi9 model on the Slovak market. Also no price estimates for this model.
We will inform you about everything in time through social networks. ", Matej Chovančák, Internet Sales Manager, mi-store.sk.
We do not assume that Xiaomi does not plan to sell Mi 9 in Slovakia. It is probably too early for information on availability. Anyway, if we find out any new information about the sale of Mi 9 with us, you will be the first to know. We will also send current info by e-mail, that's enough subscribe to our newsletter.
Global version in a few days
The global performance of Xiaomi Mi 9 will take place on February 24 / February in Barcelona, Spain. The event was officially confirmed directly by the manufacturer, who published several banners for the performance. The global version should, of course, support it complete networks (4G B20 band) in Slovakia and the Czech Republic, there will be more with language support a original EU charger.
While in the case of Xiaomi Mi 8, all networks were also supported by the Chinese version, the same cannot be said about Mi 9. The manufacturer probably wants this step stop exporting Chinese versions to the global market. Other steps taken by the company are also aimed at this, such as the impossibility of installing official global versions of MIUI on Chinese versions of smartphones.
Chinese versions of Xiaomi smartphones are distributed mainly by international retailers, while the less reliable ones upload non-original software to the phones, which can cause problems in use. Updates may not work either. It is this that casts a bad light on Xiaomi, and the manufacturer wants to prevent it.
