    iPhone key baad iNewPhone. Kia baat hai.

  • Jamil S. Nawab

    They have been selling online all over the world. I think the products are very good, haven’t used them.

  • Mohsin Javed

    i think Apple will surely sue them for the name

    • ScarletCrimson

      No, Apple doesn’t care. If Apple went around suing random Chinese companies trying to copy it, Xiaomi would be the first in line. Xiaomi copies Apple so blatantly even its CEO dresses and acts like Steve Jobs!

      Also, Nokia manufactured an exact copy of iPad mini with Nokia N1 and didn’t get sued either.

      • Umair A. Shahid

        Yeah cause Apple owns a patent on Steve Jobs’ dress sense as well. /s

        • ScarletCrimson

          I see your IQ is less than the number of letters in “dress sense”, because it’s called attire, not freaking “dress sense”. But for the sake of argument, name one other CEO who dresses similarly AND whose company blatantly rips off Apple. Take your time, get back to me in an year or two.

          • Umair A. Shahid

            It’s funny how you think intelligence has something to do with vocabulary. One quick google search can prove you’ve the wits of a five year old.

            It was your argument, let me quote you again, “Xiaomi copies Apple so blatantly even its CEO dresses and acts like Steve Jobs!”

            According to your statement, just because he dress like Steve Jobs, it is hence proved that his company copies Apple. You sir, are an idiot.

            • Umar Rashid

              Leave scarlet, Umair bro. He/She might be having some kind of Apple Phobia and as of my personal knowledge, there is no treatment for that one instead of a lollipop from Android. I think, you are getting this. :)

      • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

        N1 is nowhere copy of ipad.
        I used both of them and look technical specifications. nothing has been copied and about Nokia, they failed themselves but never copy anyone neither any European company will do that.
        Only asians copy everything.
        japan didn’t make the first car
        samsung or lg didn’t made the first television or mobile.lenovo no.1 didn’t made the first laptop or computer
        all asians and only asians copy everything

    • Wolverine

      Apple only file cases on Samsung.
      :/ Is’nt it “khula tazaad”?

  • noman

    • shiva the destroyer

      they only sell online unless ur in China

      • Mujahid Abbas

        Xiaomi is partnering with Uber to help deliver phones in Singapore and Malaysia.

  • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

    elefone and ulefone must be sold in pakistan.
    Ye daraz wala bhi kaam kay phone nahi bechta

    • Muhammad Yasir

      wow … thats a nice touch of open minded ness :p

      • Mujahid Abbas

        yupp…people are starting to trust and w8ng for Chinese mobile here now

        • Muhammad Yasir

          now .. its only up to the squat-eyed asians to make sure they come here ASAP and take us by storm!

      • Mujahid Abbas

        and I think its a good thing….chinese flagship and Samsung/LG/HTC mid-range….. are same price wise

        • Muhammad Yasir

          ofcourse …

          but i was just appreciating @dramir20:disqus’s flexibility to new ideas :p

    • AbdulB1

      Daraz wala sirf apne brand kay phone hi bechta hai.

    • AbdulB1

      I want xiaomi or meizu.

  • Raja Maja

    Spec?

  • farhan

    Panasonic and Alcatel(read TCL) also in the queue to hit Pakistani markets soon
    Most probably distributed by M&P

    • Wolverine

      Wow. Panasonic was once a very trusted company in Pakistan. Then they disappeared. :/

      • AbdulB1

        Panasonic has disappeared world over…… Just not that big name anymore.

    • shiva the destroyer

      alcatel isnt very good

      • Muhammad Yasir

        TCL is fantastic man ! wat are u talking about ?

        • shiva the destroyer

          I was talking of alcatel…I have alcatel…it isn’t good ….

          • Muhammad Yasir

            TCL is a sub brand of alcatel..

            • FYI Alcatel is subrand of TCL……Google it

              • Muhammad Yasir

                yeah soorry .. my bad !

                but why ON EARTH dont u guys have newer and cheaper chinese phones ?

              • shiva the destroyer

                Alcatel is NOT a sub-brand of TCL….its just they have tied up with TCL to make and sell smart phones or else Alcatel is a French Company

                • usman

                  That’s alcatel lucent which is a French company. alcatel is a brand with joint collaboration from alcatel lucent and tcl corporation. tcl owns 65% stake in alcatel. so it makes alcatel sub brand of tcl

    • Kamran

      Panasonic and Alcatel are not coming to Pakistan anymore. Check the market for latest update. However another Chinese company might come in the next 3 months.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        how are u so sure ????

        I LOVE TCL … they have the best prices !

        how did u know TCL is not coming to pakistan ???

    • Muhammad Yasir

      please be true … tell me your sources … I REALLY WANT TCL PHONES !

    • AbdulB1

      TCL kay phone achay thay china mei , mujh to yeh nahe pata yahan bhi achay phone models sasti qeemat mer muaesar hon gai ya nahe.

  • Wick3y

    Xiaomi kab ayega??? o.O

    • shiva the destroyer

      why dont u buy online on amazon?

      • Muhammad Yasir

        amazon … in pakistan ?!
        in a 100 years maybe ….

        • shiva the destroyer

          llol so pakistan isn’t business friendly?
          u need to open up ur economy and markets for the whole world
          u people dont shop online?

          • Muhammad Yasir

            no … what i MEANT to say is … online services are quite chosy here …
            we dont have paypal yet … and you’re talking amazon , you guys are lucky to have amazon.in , ebay.in and even the FAMED snapdeal …

          • Muhammad Yasir

            there’s no paypal and amazon here …
            thats the problem

            Pakistan is not a “not business friendly” place … but people (read govt) is sooo pathetic , they cant give us basic standard of care and welfare … , so how do you expect sophisticated business and tech facilities to be provided to us ?

            • shiva the destroyer

              how are the internet services? because India isn’t much ahead in rural infra and stuff but e-commerce is blooming so fast that even rural India is connected to their services

            • shiva the destroyer

              also here startups are growing at a rapid pace….for example Flipkart (Indian version of Amazon)

              Also some of our startups have gone global already like Zomato…Red Bus….InMobi

              • Mujahid Abbas

                Internet services are gud…and startups and freelancing is growing rapidly here too…we have some good e-commerce store…but they are not as good as amazon, flipkart…..

    • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

      xiaomi sirf online sell kerta hai.haan ye hai k pakistan main koi online store nahi jo official partner ho.

      • Mujahid Abbas

        official partner to ni…but aik reseller h…wo b shayd kc aur reseller sy buy krta… allmytech[dot]pk

        • AbdulB1

          bohat high rates deta hai allmytech wala

          • Mujahid Abbas

            yupp..they are selling Xiaomi Piston V3 for abt 3000…u can buy from other sites for 18$

            • AbdulB1

              the real problem is xiaomi accessories is that there are so many fake ones. even they have serial number and you can always check online but when you buy from internet it is hard to tell original from fake.

      • AbdulB1

        I have xiaomi note 3g bought from China. I dont like its miui but at least they have updated it from jelly beans to kit kat. Pakistan mein itna ziada tax/customs jo hai everyone wants UAE smuggled phone.

      • AbdulB1

        well we should all tweet to xiaomi to come to Pakistan or write on their fb pg.

        • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

          shuru ho jao Musalmano

    • AbdulB1

      well we should all tweet to xiaomi to come to Pakistan or write on their facebook page.

  • noman

    Market Disruptor
    Waiting for Xiaomi anxiously

    • AbdulB1

      well we should all tweet to xiaomi to come to Pakistan or write on their fb page.

  • Umer

    They have good smart-phones.Will keep an eye on them for my future smart-phone purchase.

  • Wolverine

    One plus should sale their phones like others :( everyone cannot purchase and follow that online peocedure.

    • Dr. Aamir Liaquat Hussain

      wo cost saving ker k phone online sell kertay hain.baqi wala kaam kiya to price uper jae ge or phr tmne kehna is sy acha samsung ly lo

      • Muhammad Yasir

        if only the godamned customs werent so greedy and bribe hungry !

        • Mujahid Abbas

          and talk abt resellers too

          • Muhammad Yasir

            ofcourse ….

      • Wolverine

        Nahi kahein ge bhai tum q predictions ker rhe ho?
        One plus phone ideal phones hain. I think samsung se zyada ache.

  • Anas Qureshi

    The brand that copies oppo phones with pride.. We are just having 2nd copy phones introduced officially in the market

  • Abid Hussain

    thet are launching v7 and l1 which will be big flop due to 2100mah batteries which are joke now a days for smart phone

    • Muhammad Yasir

      what about newer phones ? with 64 bit?

      • Abid Hussain

        L4 has 5000mah battery and 64bit processor but only drawback 1gb ram but i guess thats enough for 64bit phone

        • Muhammad Yasir

          actually people are starting to vouch for 3gb phones as the bare minimum for 64 bit phones for OPTIMAL performance …

          BUT as you know , in pakistan , we always make cheap concessions … so a 2gb ram 64 bit phone , WITH VERY DECENT pricing might just break the market …

          BUT they need to arrive here first -_- !

  • Muhammad Aasim

    Acha Brand Lagta hai

  • Muhammad Yasir

    yeah well they better have 64 bit procs and ATLEAST 2gb ram on ALL THEIR devices

  • Muhammad Yasir

    when are all the OTHER brands coming ?

  • shiva the destroyer

    but why would u need PayPal? LOL

    here e-commerce services have reached rural places….and there is something called…”cash on delivery”…u have to pay when the product is delivered to u

    • Muhammad Yasir

      hey , now …. dont take us as heathens ! :p

      what im saying is … you guys have way wayy more facilities than we do and not to mention the very strong currency rate and an abundance of chinese phone companies as well as big brands of other things having official presence in your country… all this helps bring prices down and makes it all the more affordable for you guys to buy flagships and the latest tech the very very niftiest of the nifty rates…

      now , while the e-commerce is in top gear here too , and mind you , we have some outstanding startups as well .. BUT , the currency is too weak !! we have to pay an “unwarranted” premium for ANYTHING good we need to purchase …. the import customs are a farce …

      we dont even have an amazon/ebay equivalent , like you do (in the form of flipkart , as u said)

      things are really really expensive here … prices are retarded and we just can’t purchase even mid-range hardware at decent prices…
      everyone’s hell bent on making “untidy” profits here …

      i believe i should have explained this to you before ..

  • Muhammad Aasim

    Welcome to Pakistan

  • nabeel

    ye dikhnay main OnePlus One jesa lag raha he na

  • Copying isn’t a crime, copying blatantly with unimpressive hardware is a crime!
    and the latter is a crime which is punished pretty awesomely too!

  • AbdulB1

    It had made sense if they had launched xiaomi or meizu in Pakistan. No one knows iNew in China.

    • Muhammad Yasir

      bro u better check Inew L3 at coolicool . com …

  • AbdulB1

    oh bhai amazon accepts visa or mastercard no need to paypal

    • Muhammad Yasir

      shipping charges ? Credit card hidden charges ?

      Indians have it all at home … we don’t , see the difference bro … its like a gazillion meters wide , how’d u miss it ?

      • AbdulB1

        hidden charges hain sab kuch hai lekin card bhi to dete hain bank walay.

      • AbdulB1

        un kay kisi politician ki koi pakistan mein industry nahe hai na. wooh apney mulq se wafadari karte hain.

  • Mujahid Abbas

    chinese brands would definitly go to India…cuz they have a big market of abt 1.252 billion….so they are not so keen on coming to Pakistan….Oppo started selling phones in Pakistan…but their phones are so expensive..

    • Muhammad Yasir

      well , others should learn from Oppo’s downfall … expensive phones DONT succeed in this country …
      however , phones like the BRAND NEW! Redmi Note 2 , if priced humanely , will succeed faster than the speed of light …

      • Mujahid Abbas

        expensive phones will sell if u have reputation like samsung/iPhone…people say if u r gonna buy phone this expensive….why not buy from samsung or ay other brand?

        and THAT Redmi Note 2 is amazing…amazed by the price and the specs…wud defenilty buy it

  • Muhammad Yasir

    CHECK OUT INEW L3 (upcoming!)
    its camera has 6 lens stack , BLue IR filter and OIS !
    WOAH !

  • Ahsan Pervez

    I ordered this phone online through Aliexpress.com as a second phone. Its an absolute joy using it. Good built quality and overall user experience.
