Xiaomi is serious about going global, expands to more European countries later this month
Chinese giant Xiaomi announced early this month plans to enter the European market with many of its products, including smartphones. The company confirmed its smartphones will be available in 3 Group's stores in Austria, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Sweden and the UK.

In addition, thanks to the partnership with A.S. Watson's Fortress, Superdrug and Kruidvat stores, many of its products will be officially available for purchase in Ireland, the Netherlands, and the UK.

Today, Xiaomi announced that it will expand to two more European countries by the end of the month: France and Italy. In fact, the handset maker is bold enough to offer exact dates for when its smartphones will be officially introduced in these countries. Apparently, Xiaomi will arrive in France on May 22 and in Italy on May 24.

Xiaomi entered the European market for the first time back in November when its smartphones were officially introduced in Spain. Hopefully, by the end of the year, the company's handsets will go on sale in the United States as well.

I wouldn’t say, that these “scum” companies makes their midrange phones underpowered on purpose. Consumers usually buys these products for the price. Good specs on budget not that common in Europe, since people eventually buy flagships. Companies like Xiaomi can keep the prices down, unlike these very “scumy” dogs of capitalist brands

Xiaomi is actually a real competition because it's makes it's mark in every place they go and competion in the market got 4x increased in just one day. When it comes to India no one wanted a Chinese branded phones because of inferior quality and bad goodwill for less durability. And that's why there is no competition in budget and midrange segment there's no good budget or midrange phones in the market that time. But Xiaomi gives really good quality and strong build phones with decent specs at really low price. And changed everyone's mindset for Chinese phones companies.
