Why Xiaomi's Smartphones Might Not Work In The U.S.
Xiaomi has started selling some products in the U.S. but it might have made a wise decision not offering its smartphones in the states yet.By Ben Lawson | February 14, 2015
Xiaomi is a company best known for smartphones but when it announced it was finally entering the U.S. market earlier this week, it revealed its smartphones weren't coming with it, instead pushing its line of HD TVs, headphones and other products.
That's because Xiaomi is going to have to change up the way it thinks of its smartphone business for it to work in the American market.
Xiaomi is already well-established outside the U.S. Last year alone it sold 61 million phones and is the top-selling manufacturer in China, where its fan-base is fiercely loyal. It's known for producing phones that feel like a top-of-the-line product but come at a cheap price of about $95.
