Xiaomi has dreams of going global and the young-ish phonemaker from China is making sure people know about its intentions. After testing the waters in the west, Xiaomi is now ready to officially launch itself in the US and some European countries.
Xiaomi’s Mi Store will go official in the US, UK, Germany and Europe on June the 1st, i.e., coming Monday. As you would’ve guessed already, it isn’t going to be its much sought after phones that Mi Stores will be selling, but rather accessories (often inexpensive) such as the Mi Power Bank, its popular earphones and headphones, and also the Mi Band fitness tracker.

People from Europe and the US have, since forever, been importing Xiaomi stuff, so it indeed be great if the devices can be had locally.[Via]
