Jaa

DNA will begin selling two eagerly awaited phones from Xiaomi’s Mi range. The Xiaomi Mi 8 is the manufacturer’s 2018 flagship, and the Xiaomi Mi A2 is a powerful Android One phone. Presales of the devices will begin today. DNA began selling Xiaomi smartphones in June, as the only official Xiaomi retailer and operator reseller in Finland.

Presales of the new phones will begin on Friday 10 August, and deliveries and actual sales will begin on Thursday 30 August.

"The eagerly awaited Xiaomi Mi 8 has attracted a great deal of interest, both worldwide and in Finland, and we are delighted to be introducing this device, equipped with outstanding features, via all of our sales channels. The Xiaomi Mi 8 offers the flagship phones’ key features in a more affordable price range and is rapidly building a strong foothold for the fast-growing Xiaomi brand in Finland," says Sami Aavikko, Managing Director of DNA Store Ltd.

The official importer of Xiaomi phones in Finland is Splendid Group.

“Xiaomi’s new, fabulous flagship phone brings the latest, innovative technology to the market. We are thrilled to provide Finnish consumers with the awesome user experience and benefits of this outstanding device,” says Kimmo Virtanen, Managing Director of Splendid Group.

Xiaomi's 2018 flagship phone, the Xiaomi Mi 8, is a powerful device with a very attractive price/quality ratio. It comes with the energy-efficient Snapdragon 845 processor familiar from other flagship phones. The Xiaomi Mi 8 is the world’s first smartphone to boast dual frequency GPS technology for extremely rapid and accurate positioning. The device features a 20-megapixel front shooter for selfies, along with the bokeh effects known from system cameras, as well as the AMOLED screen by Samsung with a hideable display notch. The device’s display area ratio is as high as 86.68%. The long-lasting 3400 mAh battery and QuickCharge 4.0 add to the user’s comfort. The body and bezel are made of airplane aluminium, and the front and back panel are made of glass.

At the same time, DNA will launch the Xiaomi Mi A2 Android One phone, whose predecessor, the Xiaomi Mi A1, has been among DNA’s best-selling Xiaomi models.

The Chinese Xiaomi is the world’s fourth-largest and fastest-growing smartphone manufacturer. In addition to technical features, Xiaomi has a strong focus on the usability and design of its products, as well as a good price/quality ratio. With the exception of Android One devices, Xiaomi’s phones run on the Android operating system and Xiaomi’s own MIUI user interface, which improves usability. The user interface is also available in Finnish.

Prices:

  • Xiaomi Mi 8 64 GB (blue) EUR 499
  • Xiaomi Mi 8 128 GB (black) EUR 549
  • Xiaomi Mi A2 64 GB (gold) EUR 299

DNA offers the devices on an interest- and cost-free three-year payment plan. DNA also offers an extended three-year guarantee for all Xiaomi smartphones.
