Xiaomi is officially bringing the Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite to the Philippines.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite Philippines

Xiaomi’s local office has brought most of its smartphone lineup to the Philippines. Recently, the company announced that the Mi 8 Pro and Mi 8 Lite are the latest devices it’s bringing over.

As is with the Mi MIX 3, price and availability information was withheld. Fortunately, the prices in China are already available, which could give us an idea how much each of the handsets would cost when they get here.

In China, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro retails for CNY 3,200 (roughly PHP 25,500) for the 6GB/128GB variant, and CNY 3,600 (PHP 28,400) for the 8GB/128GB.

The Mi 8 Lite, on the other hand, is priced at CNY 1,400 (PHP 11,100) for the 4GB/64GB, CNY 1,700 (PHP 13,400) for the 6GB/64GB, and CNY 2,000 (PHP15,800) for the 6GB/128GB.

The prices will probably be a few thousand pesos higher than these.

We’re expecting the handsets to launch in the coming days, before the year ends.
