Xiaomi Launches In Africa To Compete Against Tecno, Itel And Infinix by NaijaTechGuy(m): 6:06am On Jan 22
A couple of months ago Xiaomi Global Spokesman Donovan Sung made a post about their new store that launched in Spain and also asked for suggestions on where they should launch their next store and here’s what I said.



This means the expansion of Xiaomi had been on the cards for a while.

If you have been following up Xiaomi for a while, you would know that they tend to compete on the foreign market rather than their home country China due to the congestion.

Now, the company is looking to take things to the next level and come to Africa. On Sunday, Xiaomi announced the establishment of their African Regional Department and Wang Lingming (Xiaomi’s VP) was appointed as the manager of the department.



At the moment, in Africa we have over 1.2 billion people but the smartphone usage isn’t really too high and many people still use feature phones and because of this some phone brands don’t really do well in Africa. At the moment Transsision Holdings rules the African smartphone market with its three brands – itel, TECNO, and Infinix ranking at the very top in Africa in terms of market share.

In 2019, the Africa will become one of Xiaomi’s main pioneers in their international business, and their biggest rival here is Transsision Holdings.


What I Think About Xiaomi Coming To Africa



Xiaomi has everything it takes to succeed in Africa especially if it starts off with its recently established Redmi Brand. Redmi already have one of the core features that is missing in all the Transission brands – high quality specs at a low price. You can see how successful the Redmi Note 7 has been so far and we can guess how much the price would have been if it was a Transission product.

Transsision basically takes advantage of the mid-range and low-end smartphone market which is a strong competitive ground for Xiaomi. I believe this would also boost competition among the two brands.

Good!

It'll be a great relieve to smart phone lovers.

Though to me they delay a lot but they're still welcome.

Long overdue. Xiaomi makes me see and believe that there is different between phone and phone. Their hype and Internet recommendations built my curiosity to get one of their phones and never regretted almost 6 months now. Talk of quality over crap for far less price, with swag, xiaomi get it right. If they penetrate well to Nigeria with service centers, tecno and her cabals will soon go out of market.

Many Africans like low products not quality. Notwithstanding, quality phones at affordable price will make many to switch to Xiaomi products

what is the function of a phone?

how long should a phone be in one's possession before changing?
Re: Xiaomi Launches In Africa To Compete Against Tecno, Itel And Infinix by Feranchek(m): 7:46am On Jan 22
For y'all thinking it'll be another Tecno, rethink cos this phone is on same class as Samsung and iPhone. Yes! I said it.... IPhone! So in terms of price, hehehehe, you go spend money ooo! I just hope they don't compromise their standards for the Nigerian market cos these Nigerians love to spend less for more.
