Xiaomi aims at entering the US smartphone market in 2019Xiaomi's Senior Vice President, Wang Xiang, spoke to Reuters in Beijing, about the company's plans to enter the US market in 2019. The US market has been described as being "very attractive" and Wang Xiang shared that Xiaomi is working on versions of its smartphones that are compatible with the US cellphone networks. "Next year we hope we can do something there," Wang said. According to him, there are no firm agreements with US carriers, yet. Xiaomi has always been very careful with this step, especially after the unsuccessful attempt of LeEco and the recent events with US ban on ZTE and Huawei operations and attempts to enter the market, respectively. "We don't see any reason for us to get into that political problem," said Wang, who ran Qualcomm's China operations before joining Xiaomi in 2015. He stresses on the good cooperation of Xiaomi with US-based companies such as Qualcomm and Alphabet Inc. (Google). Wang Xiang added that Xiaomi is strictly focused on the consumer market and that many of its engineers and investors were American. Moreover, the current expansion strategy of Xiaomi is going well. It has already become number one smartphone vendor in India and has already stepped in several major smartphone markets in Europe - France, Italy, etc.Source
