Xiaomi finally brings its smartphones to Europe, officially
Xiaomi had been “threatening” its fans in the United States that it will enter the market with its greatly priced smartphones for many years now. The bad news is the Chinese company didn't manage to bring its handsets to the US market yet, but European fans will be happy to know they will start seeing some of Xiaomi's smartphones at various retailers across the continent.

Xiaomi has partnered with CK Hutchinson to bring its smartphones in the UK via major carrier Three. In addition, some of the Chinese company's products will be available at A.S. Watson brick and mortar stores in several European countries.

Initially, Xiaomi's products, smartphones included, will be available in 3 Group's stores in Austria, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, Sweden and the UK. Also, A.S. Watson's Fortress, Superdrug and Kruidvat stores in Ireland, the Netherlands, and the UK will sell Xiaomi devices as well.

According to Xiaomi, the availability of its products across Europe is likely to expand to more locations after the initial launch. As far as the US market goes, Xiaomi's latest statement on the matter indicates the handset maker plans to bring its smartphones to this location by the end of 2018 or early 2019.
