It views the Authorized Mi Store as an immersive showcase of the depth and breadth of its portfolio, demonstrating its commitment to providing Vietnamese customers with greater accessibility to experience its wide array range of products.
CEO of Digiworld Doan Hung Viet said: “The partnership between Xiaomi and DGW today reaches another milestone as we inaugurate a store packed with many of the technologies that have made Xiaomi such a world leader in this space.

Mi A1 Special Edition Red

Mi A1 has an attractive full-metal body design that measures just 7.3mm in thickness, with discreet separation lines for a seamless look and rounded edges for great hand feel.
Mi A1 incorporates a dual camera configuration, with wide angle and telephoto lenses used to incredible effect.

Mi A1 runs on stock Android, a software experience designed by Google. Priced at VND 5.990.000 with 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage (expandable via microSD card slot), Mi A1 Special Edition Red is now available at the Authorized Mi Store, and retail partner stores, such as Mobile World, FPT, local kings.
