Well, the Chinese Smartphone maker Xiaomi is planning to launch few major mobile products in America as it has started testing its devices on U.S. networks. It will take some time for the testing process to complete and maybe in a year or so the company will be ready for launching its smartphones via network carriers.
Recently Xiaomi has entered the markets like Mexico, Russia, Poland, Vietnam, and the Middle East and Latin American markets. As we know the bands of the US mobile networks are very different compared to other parts of the world, it will be quite difficult to test phones across the major local carriers.
Xiaomi’s plan of selling their smartphones through the US carriers will undoubtedly improve their sales as there are more customers and it may also plan to set up a store to provide the require support. The company is currently testing its Mi 5 and Mi Note 2, and it also has the plans to launch its majority of handsets. Xiaomi already has an online store where its sells its accessory and TV box is U.S but has to pass through the network testing for its smartphones to support the LTE bands.
Hugo Barra said that they are not going to launch anything until they are completely ready and also mentioned that few Chinese brands launched few phones in the US earlier, but it was a flop due to lack of testing done with the different Bands.
The ex-Googler has completed three years with Xiaomi recently, and with the sales of the Mi Mix starting on 4th of November, many might be eagerly waiting to grab this device. This Bezel-less concept smartphone was unveiled along with Mi Note 2 and Xiaomi calls Mi Mix as the world’s first smartphone with the edgeless display.
The Japanese display maker Sharp also released a device with similar design couple of years ago, but the internal built quality was different. The 6.4-inch display on the Mi Mix comes with a screen to body ratio of upto 91.3% and has an aspect ratio of 17:9 without any bezel on three sides. Recently Xiaomi has launched its Redmi 4A smartphone in China for 690 Yuan.
