Vendors have used to import and sell them in local markets just like they previously used to do with iPhone. Lot later, but Pakistan Telecommunication Authority took action and removed the smartphones from the market. In an official statement, PTA disclosed that those handsets were not legally approved before going on sale in the market. Neither the importers got NOC for the sale of the said devices, nor the devices met equipment type approval standards. As result, the company never launched the handsets officially in the country, it didn’t really hurt the brand in any way. It were the importers and local distributors who were at loss. According to reports, most recent entrants such as Mi Max and and Mi 5 might make their way to Pakistan market. Along with a few more handsets, Mi Eco products and accessories will also be available in local market. These will include products like car chargers, power banks etc. You shouldn’t expect the same affordable prices of Xiaomi handsets in Pakistan via official means.
