Rumor has it that Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is planning to enter the US market by introducing its new smartphone Mi5 at CES 2015.

The Chinese company, Xiaomi is planning to target the mobile market of the United States of America. Xiaomi is very popular among the Chinese mobile market and it is the third largest Smartphone manufacturer in the world. Despite its age, the company has made tremendous progress. In only four years, Xiaomi has become one of the leading mobile manufacturers.

According to China's Economic Daily News (via SlashGear), the company plans to introduce their new Smartphone Mi5 at International CES 2015. This would be the first time; Xiaomi would launch their Smartphone in the United States of America. The company will be shipping almost 100 million units in the coming year. The CEO of Xiaomi said that they plan to make Xiaomi the number one mobile manufacturer in the world in the coming 5 to 10 years. 

According to sources, Xiaomi is already taking steps for introducing their smart phone in the US mobile market. They have started to invest money in the United States based technology company called Misfit. The main focus of this company is to introduce price cutting wearables as compared to their competitors. 

Mi5 is currently priced at $325 and its Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC will make multi-tasking very fast and efficient. Now users can take high definition and amazing pictures with its 20.7 megapixel back facing camera. They can now enjoy watching movies and dramas on its 5.7 inch screen with 2K resolution. Fingerprint Sensor is the special feature of this low priced amazing smartphone. 

According to sources, the sales of Xiaomi will be up by 160 percent in the coming year. Last year, the company was able to ship more than 19 million devices in Asia. The CEO of Xiaomi who is a former Google employer, Hugo Barra said that the company has the ability to make big in very little time.

If the company plans to leave their mark in the US mobile market, they would have to introduce low price mobile phone with exclusive features. As the company is already shipping more Smartphones in China as compared to Samsung, thus it stands a chance of achieving the same in the United States of America. 

The US Consumer Electronics will take place in January and it will allow big mobile companies to showcase their smartphones. Some of the other big names include Sony and LG. Sony will unveil its upcoming smartphone and LG will also reveal its G Flex 2. 

The president of Xiaomi said that although the company is young, but it has made progress. He then said that the mission and belief of the company are that Mi5 should be able to achieve recognition and success outside the borders of China. 

CES 2015 will start on the 6th of January and the event will last for three days. It will end on the 9th of January. CEA provides a platform for all those who develop unique and creative apps or services for the business world.
