Xiaomi launches first ‘Make in Bangladesh’ Redmi 9A smartphone

Leading global smartphone company Xiaomi on Sunday announces the launch of its first locally made smartphone, Redmi 9A. With the Redmi 9A, Xiaomi takes the boldest step towards its ‘Make in Bangladesh’ journey. 

Redmi 9A focuses on the entire gamut of consumer needs and enhances productivity and digital enablement- making it an ideal choice for anyone looking for a budget-friendly smartphone. 

Last month, Xiaomi announced its manufacturing plant in Bangladesh. Located in Gazipur, the plant will be producing approximately 3 million smartphones per year. With this initiative, Xiaomi is extending its long-term commitment to the Bangladesh market. 

Ziauddin Chowdhury, Country Manager, Xiaomi Bangladesh said, "Ever since we started operating in Bangladesh, our mission was to deliver devices with premium style, cutting-edge technology and superior quality. We are extremely delighted to launch the first locally made smartphone – the Redmi 9A. Today's launch is an incredible milestone for us and the 'Digital Bangladesh' Initiative. The Redmi 9A is fully loaded with a segment-leading 12nm gaming processor and P2i nano-coating, which helps to keep it safe from splash. In terms of value proposition, I think this phone will keep ahead of the competition in the market."
