Pinoys who want an iPhone but don't want to shell out the cash will have a new option soon - Xiaomi phones.

The draw, Bloomberg says, is that the Chinese phones are comparable to iPhones and Samsung smartphones but sell at half the price.

A Xiaomi phone introduced in Singapore in February retailed for $135 (around P6,000).

Buyers won't be in bad company. Bloomberg says deliveries to Singapore stores sold out in minutes.

Xiaomi will start selling phones in Malaysia in a few weeks, then Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines, before heading to India, Brazil and Mexico.
