How to buy Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 in the UK
If you are residing in the UK and want to buy a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, one of the ways to get your hands on one is through a grey-market imported such as GearBest. Also see: Best phones 2016 UK.
GearBest does not yet have stocks of the Note 4, but you can register your email at its store to be notified when handsets arrive (register your interest in the Redmi Note 4 here). You’ll then be able to pre-order the Note 4 ahead of its release date. According to MiDevice.com it will ship after 15 October.
GearBest offers free shipping to the UK, but note that you will likely have to pay import duty on the smartphone when it arrives at customs. In our experience this is usually around £20-25.
