Xiaomi is a Chinese smartphone manufacturing company (amongst other things) which was founded back in 2010, but despite the fact this is a quite young company, they’ve managed to grow extremely fast and become China’s largest smartphone manufacturer in less than 5 years. Having that in mind, Xiaomi is no longer the number one smartphone manufacturer in China, as some other companies had managed to sell more smartphones than Xiaomi this year, but the company is working on changing that.
That being said, Xiaomi’s devices had limited availability, as the company still does most of their business in China, and in some other Asian countries. Well, it seems like Xiaomi is ready to change that, the company is coming to next year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas which is taking place in January, and judging by their latest teaser video, we’re going to see a ton of Xiaomi-branded devices released outside of China, including a number of smartphones. Having that in mind, a new report just surfaced, and it is claiming that Xiaomi plans to start selling smartphones in Greece later this month. This report is coming straight from Greece, though it does not exactly explain the whole situation, everything it says is that the company will start selling their first smartphones in Greece sometime this month, or at least announce that their smartphones will become available in the country. This, of course, means that the company plans to open up an online website in Greece and probably sell phones through official partners, at least based on the provided info. If this report is true, more info will pop up soon, and we’ll keep you updated.
Now, one thing worth mentioning is the fact that Xiaomi had already launched official websites in both Poland and Ukraine, so Greece won’t exactly be the first European country to have access to Xiaomi’s smartphones directly from the company, well, not exactly directly through the company, but through the company's partners. Xiaomi is currently selling a number of devices in both Poland and Ukraine, including the Xiaomi Mi 5, MI Max, Redmi Note 3, and Redmi 3S, though do keep in mind that Xiaomi is selling these phones through official distributors, even though the company’s online website is live in both of those countries, and is giving you all the necessary info. So, as you can see, consumers in Poland and Ukraine don’t exactly have access to the company’s latest offerings just yet, so chances are that consumers in Greece will have similar devices available, but we’ll see.
