The popularity of the latest mid-range models fromXiaomi Among parallel importers, it leads to tough price wars - which also require a response from the official importer
In their network you can find quite a few complaints and claims that they do not really constitute an upgrade compared to the previous generation, but in practice the audience is voting with their feet: the three Redmi Note 9 series devices here and in large, with availability in many dozens of stores and popularity that soon became higher than all others The Chinese manufacturer's models.
Usually, the great interest of Israeli buyers in a particular device spurs more and more factors to lift the glove and make a parallel import, when competition between those importers within the framework of advertising platforms such as Zap or Google Spurs a rapid drop in price - and so it happened that in a short time an opportunity was created to purchase the Redmi Note 9, Redmi Note 9S and Redmi Note 9 Pro at discounts of tens of percent compared to the prices of the official Israeli importer Hamilton. A large part of the consumers in the country do not shy away from a warranty for a shorter period of time, packaging that is not sealed or original and replacement chargers, it seems - they are simply interested in the best price that can be obtained.
Now comes the good news from the official importer, with price cuts of between NIS 50 and NIS 150 for all Redmi Note 9 models marketed in the Holy Land. The base model of the Redmi Note 9 with chip Helio G85, 64GB of storage and 3GB of dynamic memory will cost NIS 780 instead of NIS 900, 128GB version with 4GB of dynamic memory of the Redmi Note 9 will cost NIS 850 instead of NIS 900, the base version of the Redmi Note 9S with chip Snapdragon 720G, 64GB and 4GB of RAM will cost NIS 950 instead of NIS 1,000, a 128GB version with 6GB of RAM of the same Redmi Note 9S will cost NIS 1,050 instead of NIS 1,150 while the Redmi Note 9 Pro, with the same chip Snapdragon 720G but also a more advanced photo array and NFC chip which is available in configuration memory 128GB storage unit and 6GB storage memory Dynamic, will receive a significant discount and will cost NIS 1,150 instead of NIS 1,300.
We do not know if these discounts are temporary or permanent, but there is no doubt that this is a quick and smart response from Hamilton to market conditions (even if it will disappoint among the early efforts that chose to pay the full official cost for those models) - we very much hope the company will not disqualify Potential for further reductions in prices down the road, given that even with the new reduced prices, the parallel importers still make it possible to purchase some models of the Redmi Note 9 series at a relative reduction of NIS 200 and more.
