Xiaomi is serious about going global, expands to more European countries later this month
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.
