Unboxing Xiaomi’s Mi Fan Fest Mi-stery box

What’s in the box?!

Happy Mi Fan Festival!

Celebrating the annual event, Xiaomi Philippines sent over a special Mystery Box. What could be inside it?

Let’s unbox it!

The package I received came in a whimsical box.

Wearing my loose chángpáo (長袍) for the Mi Fan Festival

Pattern is the same: Lots of numbers. Is Xiaomi hinting at something?

Pulling out the box so we can take a look inside…

… And voila! We’ve got a foam covering the insides. (And it’s Mi-branded!)

Remove the protective foam, and you’ll find three silver foil-like packages.

Here’s the first one up!

And it’s a pouch!

Although, it isn’t your regular pouch. The creases clearly show the material isn’t made of the usual fabric. It’s quite reminiscent of Freitag’s recycled laptop bags.

Next one up, it’s a larger package folded in half.

Voila! It’s a black shirt!

The shirt is merchandise for the 2021 Mi Fan Festival. To be very honest, I’m liking the space theme for this year’s celebration.

Next one up, it’s a silver, reflective box. Frankly, this took a while for me to figure out what’s inside; Xiaomi used srong adhesives to seal it.

After struggling to remove the seal, I was greeted by this kawaii astronaut figurine. It seems like a toy collectible, but could very well work as a phone holder in case you’re feeling bold and daring.

Last but not the least, there was a Redmi Note 10 Pro hiding underneath.

It came in its usual retail box.

The phone is majestic, as usual.

Taking it out, you can see the usual accessories inside: a charging cable, adapter, instruction manuals, a SIM ejector tool, and a clear phone case.

The Redmi Note 10 Pro is quite hefty, just like its predecessor.
