We know Xiaomi’s presence in Malaysia is on a rampant rise, we know that they are selling out in Malaysia very quickly, we also know that they are soon releasing two more models in this part of the world. The Chinese phone maker however doesn’t have that strong of a global presence especially in the American regions. Some countries in Asia as well never even saw the brand before. They did however say that they are looking to launch or enter the Indian market very soon. Hugo Barra himself also confirmed that the North American market is one they will be looking into in the future.
For Xiaomi to grow the North American market is probably the way to go. With the value that the Xiaomi phones offer it looks to be a steal to the market. Hugo Barra did say though that they are only planning on the North American market next year. So North Americans, don’t expect to see a Xiaomi launch any time soon.
On the other ‘Note’ Xiaomi Redmi Note was recently released in a batch of 10,000 units in Taiwan. We wrote on the Xiaomi Redmi Note a little while back, here. It hasn’t arrived yet in Malaysian shores but be sure to tune in on the 22nd of July for its launch. So how fast do you think the Xiaomi Redmi Note sells in Taiwan, all 10,000 of them? 5 minutes? 3 minutes? 2 minutes? Nope, nope, and nope. They sold all 10,000 units in just one second. One! To put it into perspective; as soon as it launched and the clock ticks the Xiaomi Redmi Note in Taiwan is sold out, just like that. Begs the question though, will it break that record in Malaysia at launch if it is timed in milliseconds? Let’s wait and see.
