At a "special" event held in Madrid the company said that retailers/e-tailers located in Spain, like Amazon.es, MediaMarkt, Phone House and others will be now selling Xiaomi products. The company also launched a dedicated Mi.com/es site that will host online sales as well.
Without import and duty taxes, you can now get some of those hot Mi and Redmi smartphones, as well as other devices like the Mi Band 2, Mi Box or the Mi Action Camera 4k. Some of the devices currently listed on the site include the Android One running Mi A1 for €229, flagship Mi Mix 2 for €499, Mi 6 for €449, Mi Max 2 for €279, Redmi Note 4 for €169, Redmi 4A for €99, Redmi 4X for €149, Mi Box for €74.99, Mi Band 2 for €24.99 and the Mi Action Camera 4k for €134.99. Forget the 99 number - that is the usual marketing ploy. Just round it up. Not below.
Online sales from Xiaomi's Spain site will start tomorrow, November 8th while other retailers/e-tailers are expected to stock up on these devices on November 22nd. Xiaomi will also open a store in Madrid, which will start on November 11th, it is claimed.
Previously, Xiaomi devices were only available for Europeans from various Chinese sites, local resellers or the Xiaomi distributor in Greece, which was the first one of its kind.
Hopefully, Xiaomi will be able to further expand in Europe offering much more competition.
