When China’s Xiaomi will start selling Android phones
Xiaomi is expected to start selling devices in the US this month, according to reports.
A source close to the company told The Wall Street Journal that the company plans to sell phones in stores in the coming weeks.
China is the world’s second-largest smartphone market, with nearly 1.3 billion devices sold worldwide in 2015, according the data.
While the company has been known to produce some pretty niche products in the past, the company’s efforts to build a brand around Android devices have made the US its second-biggest market, behind China.
The WSJ reports that Xiaomi plans to start shipping phones in the country this month.
Xiaomi has also previously indicated that it plans to launch devices in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
