Xiaomi's expansion in Europe continues at a faster pace, and the Chinese smartphone maker has announced plans to open its first store in London, Techcrunch said.
The company is known for developing quality Android smartphones at affordable prices and now selling its devices in Spain, Italy and France.

He also arrived to Great Britain where Xiaomi introduced the Mi 8 Pro smartphone and discovered that he would open a trade at Westfield in London on November 18th.
The store is similar to Apple's iconic shopping malls and will show a series of products that are not sold in the UK.

In addition to Mi 8 Pro, the company also introduced other interesting products such as the Redmi 6A budget model, the Xiaomi Band 3 fitness device and the 400 pound electric scooter. They will be sold on Mi.com's online store and a number of other online stores including Amazon.
Currently, Xiaomi is not growing in the United States where it only sells a few add-ons, but action on the European market is a sign of a new phase in its international expansion that goes further than Asia's borders.
Although the Chinese company claims to be present in "more than 70 countries and regions around the world," much of the success is due to sales in China, India and Asia.

The facility is located in a large shopping mall, which offers over 160 company products
But CEO Ley Jun publicly announced his goal of selling Xiaomi smartphones to the US by the beginning of 2019.
Still, with a somewhat limited focus, Xiaomi said that in 2018 he achieved record-breaking 100 million copies. The company achieved $ 2.1 billion in revenue in the first quarter as a public company after a debtor on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. However, its shares do not work well and are currently traded below the initial bid price.
