Xiaomi is expanding its reach in Europe, following its arrival to Spain a while back, the company has just officially arrived to France as well. Following its launch in France, Xiaomi will kick off sales for its products in yet another country on Thursday, in Italy. The company has opened up its Mi Store in Paris, at 39 Boulevard de Sebastopol, while it has also started selling its products via its new online store for the French market.
Now, those of you who live in France are quite probably interested in price points of Xiaomi’s smartphones. Well, You can get the Redmi Note 5 for €199.90, Redmi 5 for €139.90, while the Xiaomi Mi A1 is priced at €229.90. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 is priced at €399.90, while you can purchase the company’s flagship, the Mi MIX 2S, for €499.90. Italian consumers can expect similar price points in Italy, if not the same, but we’ll get more info tomorrow once Xiaomi launches its first Mi Store in the country, where it will start selling its devices online as well. Xiaomi had managed to grow quite a bit in the last year and a half, this China-based smartphone manufacturer actually managed to trump Samsung in India, and become the number one smartphone manufacturer in that country. India is the second largest smartphone market in the world, for those of you who did not know, and is beaten only by China, where Xiaomi is doing really well as well.
Xiaomi is clearly aiming to expand its horizons to Europe, as the US market has become quite complicated, as both Huawei and ZTE ran into serious difficulties when it comes to selling their products in the country. If Xiaomi manages to spread its influence all over Europe, that will boost the company quite a bit, as it would not only do really well in the two largest smartphone markets in the world, but Europe as well, and there’s definitely some potential here. It remains to be seen what markets will follow Italy, but it doesn’t seem like Xiaomi is planning to stop anytime soon, so the company will probably announce its arrival to a number of additional countries in Europe by the end of the year.
