When will Xiaomi enter the United States? Itâ€™s a question weâ€™ve been asking for a number of years, and maybe 2018 is the year everything comes together as planned. Now thereâ€™s a clear commitment to enter the market.
Xiaomi put forth a statement thatâ€™s promising for consumers whoâ€™ve long looked forward to buying their phones outside of Asia and Europe. The company expects to enter the U.S. by the end of 2018 or the start of 2019. Itâ€™s unclear which phones from the companyâ€™s lineup would make their way overseas, but nonetheless, weâ€™re excited.
Hereâ€™s the full statement from Lei Jun, the companyâ€™s chairman:
â€œWeâ€™ve always been considering entering the U.S. market. We plan to start entering the market by end 2018, or by early 2019.â€
Itâ€™s not like the U.S. and other parts of North America are completely ignored. Xiaomi does sell an Android TV-powered set-top box through various retailers. Smaller products like headphones, earbuds, and a portable battery also been sold from the Mi Store.
