Textiles company Miitomobile is offering a range of new products in Ireland.
The company said it was opening its doors in Cork, Limerick and Dublin in the coming weeks.
In Cork, customers will be able to pick up the new MX2 in the first week of November.
“The Miitomyobile team is excited to launch its brand new Miits in Cork and Limerick in the week of October 3, 2019,” the company said in a statement.
“As a new Miiti, the MX2 is the first Miitota smartphone with an integrated camera and a fingerprint reader, which will bring a new level of privacy and security to Miits users.”
The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 821 processor, with 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage and a 1,500mAh battery.
It is also a “smartphone with a camera”, the company added.
A limited number of the phones will be available to pre-order at the start of November, and will be priced at €199 for the phone with an 8-inch screen, €299 for the 8- and 12-inch screens and €399 for the 16- and 32-inch versions.
A special edition MX3 will also be available for €399, with a 16-inch display, 64MB of RAM and a 4GB RAM.
“Our aim is to bring the best of Miitomi to the world, so we have a great range of products to choose from in Cork,” Miitome founder Daniel Rinaldi said in the statement.
The new Miis will be manufactured in two new plants, located in Limerick, and Cork.
“We are proud to launch the Miitomas in Cork for the first time and are working hard to build our brand and continue to expand our range of Miits,” said Mark Kavanagh, President of Cork Manufacture.
“With over 1,000 Miits built in Cork alone, it’s important we build on our success and build on the success of the previous Miits.
We’re excited to bring more Miits to Cork and we are committed to continuing to grow our product range.”

The latest Miitomes will be made in Cork in the same factories that have been making them for the past four years.
“To build the first generation MiitOMobiles in Cork we need to build a new facility, but the new facility will take around three months,” Miitermotor CEO Pauline MacSweeney said.
“A Miitobot will be a smartphone that’s a Miit-like experience.”
She said the company has been in talks with Cork City Council to build the factory.
The Miitmoms will be “big, bold and beautiful” and are expected to cost €1,200.
“There’s an exciting future ahead for Miitimos,” Ms MacSweeny said.
A Miimomobile will be sold in Ireland for the very first time in October 2019.
“Miitomobiles will be the new fashion icon in Ireland, and the first and most important of all, the most iconic of all our products,” said Miitotamor president Pauline.
“They will be used everywhere and will continue to be the fashion icon of Ireland for years to come.”
The company plans to open up its Cork facility in the next two months.
