Xiaomi is planning to enter the huge US phone market. One of the main Chinese smart phone manufacturers is planning to release its cellular devices in the United States, as Xiaomi’s officials of its worldwide business said this week.
This announcement came along with the presentation of its Mi 5 model at the MWC tech event in Spain. It represented the first time when the organization used a famous occasion to release a leading phone, which some had considered as signaling the broader worldwide launch.
Xiaomi exceeded LG Electronics and became the fifth smart phone producer on the globe last year. However, the majority of its products is focused on the Asian market, mainly China and India, but on some big countries in South America.
Its access into the United States and other Western marketplaces has been awaited for a couple of years, but until now, the producer has not taken the decisive step into these regions. In the past, they have had difficulties with various intellectual property laws, according to tech specialists who followed its evolution.
They are voicing a frequent perception in the cellular market that patent certification problems are holding Xiaomi back. The company has never admitted that, but this week, its reps talked about the over 3,500 patents that they have applied for in the last years.
They have also discussed about the integration of Qualcomm’s top processors, with whom the Chinese Company joined forces in 2015. A substantial patent series makes it a lot simpler for these producers to enter other extended marketplaces.
This is because it can indicate cross-licensing contracts with other significant patent owners, rather than having to join particular business relationships. The problematic Chinese economy could also be forcing Xiaomi to consider broader markets for its mobile phones.
In 2015, they missed their own revenue prediction by approximately 7 million units, mostly caused by the decreasing of economy in China. For Western clients, Xiaomi’s main point of interest will surely be the premium specifications at low costs.
Its Mi 5 model that was released this week has many similar options as the latest Galaxy S7 or LG G5 flagships, but it has half their price tag. But the organization will have to focus on its operating system. Xiaomi is known for launching its proprietary Android client interface, named MIUI, every week.
Each launch includes features recommended by customers, but many of these functions are targeted at Chinese users where Google’s programs are not offered, the tech experts added.
