Xiaomi released its new flagship Mi 6 last week but this year the premiere passed the US and Europe. This has forced users to to look for unofficial distribution channels. In an interview with Engadget, Xiaomi vice president, Wang Xiang, said the company wanted to enter the Western markets, but negotiations with operators were too slow and complicated.

For this reason, Xiaomi offers its technology in emerging markets. Xiang said that Xiaomi operates on 30 markets, and most of them are developing. But the company’s goal was to “offer innovation to everyone”. Wang Xiang took the Senior VP position after Hugo Barra left Xiaomi for Facebook.

“We don’t want to make a random decision, oh say, here’s the Mi 6, let’s try the US market, if it doesn’t work let’s just leave,” Wang said. “No, we want to be well prepared and make a boom in those markets.” Xiaomi sells its smartphones directly through their website.

According to him, the main barrier to entering markets like the United States and the UK is their orientation towards mobile operators. Stepping up these markets would have more to do with the development team, he admitted. But Xiang said that 2019 is a realistic forecast for Xiaomi’s premiere in the United States.
