The Great Singapore Sale (GSS) is back, and like past editions, tons of offline and online retailers are offering discounts to consumers looking to stretch their dollar. Qoo10 has gotten into the act too, and in this edition, we’ll be focusing on a few Xiaomi deals that are now available on the e-marketplace.
Protip: Qoo10 has been giving out 8% discount coupons for the electronics category every week during its so-called “Power Thursdays” events, and these coupons are valid for two days (until end of Friday). While not all electronics goods can use these 8% coupons (especially those already on steep discounts), it’s always wise to check if your items are eligible during checkout so that you don’t miss the opportunity to save more.
Without further ado, here are the current Xiaomi deals on Qoo10.
(Editor's note: Since these products aren't sold by the official Xiaomi store, you might want to check the individual product listing or contact the reseller if you've any questions regarding warranty.)
Xiaomi’s newest fitness tracker, the Mi Band 3, is now available for pre-order on Qoo10. For the uninitiated, the Mi Band 3 sports a 0.78-inch OLED display (a big upgrade from its predecessor’s 0.42-inch), a 110mAh battery for up to 20 days of battery life, and has a built-in heart rate monitor. It also supports NFC and is water resistant up to 50 meters. Regularly the pre-order price is S$44, but you can now score one for S$39.90.
Do you know that Xiaomi also sell drones? In a nutshell, the Mitu RC drone is a mini drone with a built-in 720p HD camera that supports real time FPV transmission (up to 10 minutes flight with its 920mAh battery). Weighing just 88g, the mini drone also supports a multi-machine infrared battle mode, allowing you to do battle with your friends and their drones. For even better realism and to get more control, you can also pair the drone with a Bluetooth controller. The mini drone is now available on Qoo10 for S$98.
The Mi 8 is Xiaomi’s latest flagship Android smartphone. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, the Mi 8 also has a 6.21-inch, 2,248 x 1,080-pixel AMOLED display; a dual rear camera setup that consists of a 12MP, F1.8 camera with OIS and a 12MP, F2.4 camera; a 20MP selfie camera; infrared face unlocking; and a 3,400mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 4+ fast charging. You can now pre-order the 6GB RAM / 64GB storage model (available in black and white color options) on Qoo10 for S$688, and it comes with a free Xiaomi 10,000mAh slim powerbank.
Touting eight speaker drivers (two dome tweeters, four passive radiators, two woofers), the Xiaomi TV soundbar also boasts a variety of connectivity options, including optical and S/PDIF inputs. Covered with a fabric material at the front, the white color soundbar can be mounted either on the wall or the tabletop, and for those of you who can’t stand wires, the soundbar can be paired to the source via Bluetooth 4.2. During this period, you can score this good-looking soundbar on Qoo10 for just S$88.
Looking for an affordable 4K TV? The 50-inch Mi TV 4A might just be it. Sporting a quad-core 1.5GHz Amlogic processor with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage, this 4K smart TV is also equipped with three HDMI inputs and two USB ports. It supports HDR10 and HLG HDR formats, too, and in the audio department, it plays nice with Dolby Audio and DTS-HD.
