Xiaomi first official Black Friday in UK
Now that Xiaomi has officially entered the UK technology market, consumers can get excellent savings even before any other discount. Xiaomi produces high quality technology at low prices, something that can be achieved in part by promising never to receive more than 5% hardware profit. They have a wide range of smartphones from really cheap ones with the Redmi Saga to high spec ones like Xiaomi Mi 8 or the Xiaomi Mi Mix.
Xiaomi devices are stored in the UK in the likes of three, Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse, Currys PC World, Go Mobile, direct mobile phones, Ebuyer, Scan, Box, Halfords, Very, Littlewoods and Mi.com. We all expect to make Black Friday and Christmas sales, but you should also watch out for Chinese sites like GearBest and Geekbuying. for some impressive flash sales. For first time in UK, you can buy in shops or Amazon.com Xiaomi products in an official way, while in other years they were just imported from China from unofficial sites and webs.
Lucky enough, all this is going to change. If you buy in China instead of in the UK, be prepared to pay import duties on anything you buy. This is charged at 20% of the value on shipping documents. If you are looking for a Xiaomi phone, try buying a global model; otherwise you will need to install Google services on your own and may not have full support for the UK 4G.
