In the past it took months before international resellers were able to get their hands on the latest Xiaomi but this, it seems, is no longer true as Italian resellers have already started pre-orders.
Since the Xiaomi Mi2, customers around the world have been itching to get their hands on the latest Xiaomi phones. The issue has always been that Xiaomi had only officially launched their phones in China, and even there demand outstripped supply.
With the launch of the Mi4 though, this could have changed as noted international resellers have already started to accept pre-orders for the Mi4 and are promising delivery very soon.
Italian website Xiaomishop.it are now accepting pre-orders for the Xiaomi Mi4 at a cost of 383 Euros when using the discount code GIZXIAOMI with a free Xiaomi MiKey. Pre-orders are promised to be completed and phones shipped from Italy on August 10th and include a 24 month warranty. I have personally used Xiaomishop.it for my MiRouter which was shipped very quickly.
