Xiaomi to sell the Mi MIX in new markets
The Mi MIX will be available in the UAE in March, priced at the equivalent of $816.50 USD. The phone will be offered by online and retail outlets Etisalat and Carrefour. So what about a U.S. launch of the phablet? Xiaomi isn't expected to open shop in the States soon because its lack of patents would expose the company to a number of infringement suits. That doesn't preclude the company from working out licensing deals in the future.
Xiaomi will not be making a presentation at MWC, which means that the company's presence in Barcelona will either consist of a skeleton crew or there will be no one from the company attending at all. With that in mind, it might be a few weeks before we learn what other new markets the Mi MIX will be available in besides the UAE.
