Xiaomi is not in a haste to arrive in the U.S. It does not have sufficient resources to customize Xiaomi devices for U.S. networks. Some companies like OnePlus and Huawei's Honor brand have entered the U.S and sold their devices directly to customers. Xiaomi does not want to adopt direct-to-customer strategy as it will be impact the brand's reputation as well as the relationship with the U.S. carriers. It is only waiting for the right opportunity.

In the last year, Xiaomi released the Mi MIX concept smartphone that amazed the world with its innovatve bezel-less design. In 2017, it has launched the Mi 6 flagship phone and Mi Max 2 phablet. It is rumored to launch more phones in this year such as Xiaomi Mi 6 Plus, Mi Note 3, Redmi Pro 2 and Mi Mix 2.

With the year 2017 reaching its half, it does not seem that Xiaom will be coming to the U.S. and Europe in this year. The only option that is left with Xiaomi fans from these countries is to avail the desired Xiaomi phone through Chinese resellers like GearBest and AliExpress.
