Xiaomi recently opened its first Mi Home Kenya and promised to follow up with more stores across Nairobi. Apparently, the company is lining up two more Mi Home Kenya launch events at The Sarit Centre and Westgate Mall, but we don’t know when exactly these two will spring to life.
What we do know, however, is that a new Xiaomi Mi Store is set to open in Nairobi’s CBD on August 10, 2019. From what we’ve learned, this won’t be a Mi Home equivalent, rather, it’s a smaller version of the Mi Home that’s meant to serve those within the CBD and not necessarily force fans to go all the way to Karen.
Xiaomi Kenya has revealed that the new Mi Store will be located along Moi Avenue, but there are no specifics about the exact location. What we do know, though, is that up to 2000 pieces of the Mi Band 4 will be available for purchase during this event.

The Mi Band 4 was unveiled in June 2019 and is available for purchase in China at CNY 169, which is about Kshs 2,500. It’s unlikely this will be the price of the wearable when it arrives in the country, but given what transpired at The Hub in Karen, it’s possible Xiaomi will discount limited units for early adopters.
The opening of the first Mi Home Kenya was marred with multiple postponements, so we can’t be sure about any dates that Xiaomi Kenya gives us. We’ll have to wait until next month to see if the said new Mi Store will actually materialize.
