Xiaomi will launch US e-commerce site for certain products


lei jun mi band

Xiaomi have confirmed that it will be entering the US market and plans to launch a US based E commerce store for certain accessories.

It’s not the State side phone launch we were hoping for, but at least it is something. Xiaomi have announced that they plan to launch a Mi.com store where certain accessories will be on offer to US Xiaomi fans.

Which products will be launched remains unclear at this time, but we can certainly see the Mi Band, battery packs and possibly the Xiaomi box as possible hot sellers.

Hopefully pricing will be kept as low as it is in China and other key markets where Xiaomi has already launched its phones and other products. At this time a launch date has not been announced.

      Will be tough to win a court battle unless Xiaomi used Apple patents without permission or they purposely tried to mislead customers. The last one would be hard to prove given how similar most tablets/phones look today. Apple wasn’t the first to call a tablet “pad” either.

        I know, my comment was sarcastic.
        Still, they have to be careful because they are going to be a threat being a new competitor and it’s not going to be painless. Another issue is that sooner or later Xiaomi will go Public and it looks they are going to check if the american stock market will offer more money than Hong Kong’s one. It wouldn’t be nice to get into a dispute with Apple while looking for investors overseas

          There are enough people that despise Apple that a dispute could work out to their advantage haha.

            This may be a bit off topic… but for Xiaomi to really be successful in the NA market, they really have to get known in Western social media networks, especially Youtube and the like. One+ has done this, and I am seeing their phones all over Toronto, Canada – yet the only Xiaomi phone I’ve seen in person here is my own…

            Just search up top budget phones, top phones, etc on Youtube. The only genuine “Chinese brand” phones you will see are One+, and sometime OPPO (I have omitted Motorolla since they have just recently been bought out by Lenovo). The rest will be HTC, Samsung, LG, etc… even though all of us here know we can get better priced phones wth the same features or even more from mainland China. Once Xiaomi gets in with the big Youtube reviewers, they are golden in the West.

              I haven’t found that to be the case at all. There are thousands of Youtube Channels dedicated to Chinese phones like C4ETech and Indian channel but very popular in the US and even the big guys like Phondog, Android Authority and PocketNow have started to review Xiaomi, Miezu and the other top Chinese brands.

      The ultimate battle, iFags vs Mifans.

    This isn’t surprising as Hugo stated the next two countries they are entering are Brazil and Mexico. Which means they will open a factory in one of those for expansion into US/Canada.

    Xiaomi is still a very China-centric company and nothing shouts that louder that the MIUI theme store which still comes up in Chinese even though I’m not located in China. Still, I love my RedMi Note with it’s close-to Galaxy Note 3 specs but cheaper than than a Moto G.
