Xiaomi has partnered with Smart Telecommunications to offer the Xiaomi Mi3 on its postpaid plans. Filipinos can now own the Mi 3 for as low as ₱500 per month.

Of course, you need to comply with several requirements to avail of the Mi 3 on Smart. The All-In 500 Plan option also requires you to pay ₱7,800 on the first month. To get the Mi 3 for free, you need to sign up for at least the Data Plan 999.

Xiaomi Mi 3 Now Available on Smart Postpaid Plans

Xiaomi Mi 3 is a great phone for its high end specs on a relatively cheap price compared to other international brands. It runs on a Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM and MIUI v5. It is officially priced  ₱10,599 and is exclusively sold by Lazada (until this offer from Smart).

I once said that Xiaomi isn’t a big threat to the local brands because the Mi 3 lacks some features and doesn’t have any physical store. However, the partnership with local carriers like Smart will give them a higher exposure and drive their sales up and trump the local brands on the ₱10,000 – ₱11,000 price point.
