Yasir Altaf, director Smartlink while talking to MORE revealed that they will be the official distributor of Xiaomi in Pakistan and will provide the official warranty and full after sales service to their customers. He revealed that their company is expecting around 15,000 sold units after 2-3 months.
Mobile phone sale in Pakistan is largely accomplished through offline sales rather than online sales. Keeping this factor in Mind, Mr. Altaf said:
Xiaomi smartphones will be sold offline after around 20 days via selective shops that are onboard with Smartlink Technologies
Smartlink is currently evaluating the market and hasn’t decided whether it will move towards a conventional marketing technique like QMobile does, or would target the users through its distribution network like OPPO does.
The Chinese Smartphone brand will also launch Xiaomi Mix in the April or May of 2017 which will be priced approximately at PKR 70,000-80,000.
Zong has also officially partnered with Xiaomi, which means there are special data packages in store for the Xiaomi users in Pakistan. It is said to offer free 4G data bundles with Xiaomi smartphones where the buyers will get 6 GB data for 6 months.
