China's Xiaomi to enter U.S. smartphone market soon

(CRI Online)    09:27, August 24, 2016

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has announced its intention to finally enter the US smartphone market.

The company's vice-President says plans are in the works to enter the smartphone battle in the United States sometime in October.

However, specifics about what product Xiaomi plans to launch, or exactly when it plans to launch it, have not been revealed.

Hugo Barra does say it will focus on social media, with a plan to reach out to younger consumers in the United States through new technology.

The move is not unexpected.

Xiaomi acquired around 15-hundred patents from Microsoft in June.

The Beijing-based company officially entered the US market last year through its mi.com online store.

However, Xiaomi has only been selling accessories, such as power banks and headphones.
