Tokyo, Dec. 10- Chinese firm Xiaomi will introduce its smartphones and other electronic products to the Japanese market this month, much earlier than the 2020 planned launch, media reported.
According to the local NHK agency, a mobile phone model with a 108 mega pixel camera will go on sale online next Monday.
The brand will then launch another mobile device, a smart watch and a rice cooker that can be remotely controlled.
NHK added that the company considers that now is the right time to enter the Japanese market because in 2020 the country will move to 5G (fifth generation network), and the Japanese public is very receptive to new technologies.
Statistics indicate that Xiaomi, established in Beijing and created in 2010, last year exported 119 million smartphones.
These data place Xiaomi fourth in the world ranking, behind Samsung, Apple and Huawei.
Recently the firm successfully entered India with its mobiles and other devices, as its catalog includes a wide range of appliances including televisions, blenders and ovens. (Prensa Latina)
