DNA to begin sale of Xiaomi phones as Finland’s first official reseller – Splendid Group acting as partner


DNA will begin the sale of Xiaomi smart phones on Wednesday, 20 June 2018. This will make DNA the first official reseller of Xiaomi phones in Finland. The first models for sale will be Mi Mix 2S, Redmi 5, Redmi 5 Plus and Mi A1. The official importer of Xiaomi phones in Finland is Splendid Group in alliance with Group RDC and Smart Orange.

DNA has begun a partnership with Chinese smart phone manufacturer Xiaomi through official reseller Splendid Group in Finland. Xiaomi is the world’s fourth-largest and fastest-growing smart phone manufacturer, whose products are known for being good value for money. Xiaomi’s innovative products combine high-quality technology with top design, nevertheless keeping the prices low.

Xiaomi’s Redmi series phones are their most inexpensive ones, while the Mi series products are technically top quality but still attractively priced. The Mi series also includes Xiaomi’s flagships.

“Xiaomi phones are an excellent addition to our product range. Xiaomi’s target group consists especially of young consumers who value top specifications. Xiaomi also invests heavily on the usability and design of their products. More and more consumers want to stand out also with their phone brand, and Xiaomi meets also this demand brilliantly,” says DNA Store’s Managing Director Sami Aavikko.

Xiaomi’s official importer in Finland is Splendid Group in alliance with Group RDC and Smart Orange.

“We are pleased to work together with one of the world’s most innovative smart phone manufacturers and to enable cooperation between DNA and Xiaomi, thanks to which Xiaomi’s high-quality yet inexpensive products will be widely available in Finland. We have realised that there are plenty of Mi fans also here, and so we believe Xiaomi products will be an attractive alternative for larger consumer groups,” says Splendid Group’s Managing Director Kimmo Virtanen.
