Xiaomi has been fighting the contraction of its sales for some time now as it struggles to find pathways out of China. We’ve been talking about US expansion for that same bit of time, but there’s little fruition on that front. At least, though, the Chinese OEM is getting somewhere.
Take the United Arab Emirates as electronics distributor Task FZCO and carrier Etisalat are partnering to sell four phones.
- The Redmi 2 Pro for AED449 ($122)
- The Redmi Note 2 for AED719 ($196)
- The Mi 4i for AED899 ($245)
- The Mi Note for AED1699 ($463)
Task FZCO also plans on introducing Xiaomi devices to Saudi Arabia by the end of the month. The firm’s distribution network covers many parts of the Middle East.
