South Korean carrier KT suspends Xiaomi smartphone sales

Xiaomi smartphone sales have been suspended by South Korea’s second largest carrier, KT Corp. The move comes just two days after the network operator started sales through online shopping site Interpark Corp. on Monday. It also market the first time a South Korean carrier started distributing Xiaomi smartphones.

According to unnamed sources familiar with the matter, there were “legal matters related to sales” at the core of the decision. Meanwhile, South Korea’s third mobile carrier, LG Uplus Corp., has started selling the Huawei Y6 smartphone, mostly due to the increasing popularity of budget smartphones in the market. However, domestic manufacturers (Samsung and LG) are still dominating the market, according to Yonhap.
