Xiaomi reveals US expansion plans

News of the US expansion comes from Xiaomi global vice president Hugo Barra, who was recentlyinterviewed by Bloomberg. "The US is a market that wedefinitely have in our sights," Mr Barra said during a television interview. "We will lead with social media, with the channels that allow us to get in touch with the young generation that are enthusiastic about new technology. We are definitely going there. "Mr Barra's comments are ultimately non-committal, but show that Xiaomi is edging closer to a move into the US. However, the major challenge for Xiaomi is how it would compete with Apple and Samsung, which dominate smartphones sales thereby a large margin. How it would edge in with products that do not offer more innovation than Apple and Samsung, butrather only lower prices, is the million dollar question.

This is not the first time that Xiaomi has gone on record to discuss plans to set up shop in the US. Mr Barra visited San Francisco early last year to announce the launch of Mi.com, an online store that sells gadgets, but not smartphones or tablets. These latest comments from Mr Barra signal what is possibly the finalchapter in the company's plans to begin selling phones in the US.
