We recently told you about Xiaomi getting mandatory type approvals from the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) after the mobile manufacturer fulfilled the regulator’s requirements and went through the proper procedure.
But unlike some claims from Facebook pages, Xiaomi has not launched in Pakistan yet.
“We would like to negate rumors regarding the launch of Xiaomi”, said a person who is directly involved with Xiaomi Pakistan. “Several fake Facebook pages claim to be official Xiaomi pages, however, that is not the case”, the official added.
These fake Xiaomi stores may scam you with overpriced products
Some have even launched authentic looking online websites along with their Facebook pages. But please be aware that they aren’t official.
Xiaomi only uses its own website when it launches its phones in a country. Its website uses the format www.mi.com/XX, where XX are the initials for the country. Any other website claiming to be the official Xiaomi website is going to be fake.
