Although Xiaomi has been around for some time now, their smartphones never made its way to the US but new reports seem to suggest that 2018 will be the year. Should Apple be worried?
After years of waiting, Xiaomi finally addressed their fans outside of Asia and Europe. In their statement, Xiaomi said that entering the US has always been their goal. They added that they plan to enter by the end of 2018 or early 2019.
Xiaomi did not reveal what smartphones they plan to bring in but most people believe that we will most likely see the flagship Mi smartphone make its way over along with the mid-range smartphones.
Of course, for Xiaomi to really take off here in the US, they will need the support of the carriers. So far, no carriers have indicated that they will be supporting Xiaomi so we will have to wait and see.
