Smart Link Technologies announced today that it is partnering as an online partner to distribute the products of leading technology company Xiaomi in Pakistan. This is Xiaomi’s first official entry in the country through a distribution partnership.

Jack Yung, Sales Director of South Asia, Xiaomi announced that three smartphones including Mi Max, Redmi Note 4 and Redmi 4A together with its IoT products such as Mi Band 2 will be available in Pakistan.

Founded in 2010, Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun and other co-founders started the company based on the vision “innovation for everyone”. It first launched its Android-based interface MIUI in 2010, and its very first smartphone Mi 1 the following year. Renowned for its user-centric, innovation-driven philosophy, Xiaomi is continuing its commitment to expand its outreach globally.

Mi Max and Mi Band 2 will be live on in a while. Redmi 4A will be live on February 25 and Redmi Note 4 on March 5. In addition to speedy and safe deliveries by Daraz, Smart Link Technologies will provide fans with attractive warranty conditions. Zong is also offering an attractive 4G offer on Xiaomi smartphones of 6 GB data for 6 months.

Daraz CEO, Bjarke Mikkelsen commented about the upcoming venture:

“We at Daraz, in partnership with Smart Link, are proud to serve as exclusive online partner for this exciting launch that will bring together Pakistan’s largest online store and Asia’s most innovative smartphone brand in what promises to be a complementary relationship. I believe this partnership will yield multiple benefits to both parties with opportunities for cross-pollination and convergence. Daraz welcomes Xiaomi to its Pakistan, in our shared mission to extend our global footprint.”

Redmi Note 4 provides flagship-class performance, featuring the 10-core MediaTek Helio X20 chip, a full-HD display and a battery that will last over an entire day.

Redmi 4A is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, and comes with two SIM slots and 4G support. Even though Redmi 4A weighs just 131.5g, it comes with a large 3120mAh battery with 7-day standby time.
