The South Korean division of Xiaomi has announced the launch of the Redmi Note 10 series and Mi TV 4S series in the country. Although the company has revealed the price of all these products, it has only finalized the release (sale) date of the smartphones.

According to a report by Yonhap News Agency, the Redmi Note 10 and the Redmi Note 10 Pro (Max) will retail for 218,000 won ($193) and 319,000 won ($282) respectively in South Korea. The former will hit the shelves on March 30 while the latter will be available from April 9.

Analysts predict that Xiaomi will introduce more sub-$400 handsets in Korea to gain market share from LG, which is expected to shutter its smartphone business

. As per Counterpoint Research, LG was the country’s third-largest smartphone brand with a 13% market share in 2020.

Above all, phones priced $400 or below accounted for 41% of the entire South Korean smartphone market in 2020. Hence, industry observers say that Xiaomi will target customers in this price segment with high spec’d mid-range devices.

Apart from the Redmi Note 10 series handsets, Xiaomi will be also releasing Mi TV 4S 55” and Mi TV 4S 65” in the country. These smart televisions are priced at 649,000 won ($573) and 849,000 won ($750) respectively. Going by their listings on Korea, the 55-inch model is the same as the one sold in Europe

with the identical name, whereas the 65-inch variant is known as Mi TV 4X 65” in Europe.
