Gizchina News of the week
The UK market is a large and open market. The likes of Huawei, Apple, and Samsung are already well established in the market. However, these companies were already in China before Xiaomi came and it’s doing quite well. Xiaomi has a fair mix of flagships and mid-range smartphones thus with a good marketing strategy, it should do well in the UK.
