Xiaomi is steadily becoming one of the world's most important smartphone brands, and on November 8, the company announced that it's officially expanded to the United Kingdom. Xiaomi Mi 5s Plus, Xiaomi Mi Max, Xiaomi Mi 4, Xiaomi Mi Max Prime, Xiaomi Redmi 5A, Xiaomi Redmi 4, Xiaomi Redmi 4A, Xiaomi Redmi 4x, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Qualcomm version, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 MediaTek version, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Prime, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X, Xiaomi Mi Note 3, Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus and Xiaomi Redmi Pro.

On the photography front, you'll find a single-lens 13MP camera on the rear of the device and a 5MP camera around the front, both of which support Xiaomi's AI-fuelled portrait mode.

The battery is 3,000mAh, which is less than that on the OnePlus 6T.

Chinese phonemaker Xiaomi is releasing its first handset in the United Kingdom, as the company seeks to expand its reach beyond Greater China.

You'll be able to buy the Redmi 6A and a Xiaomi Mi Band 3 for only £99.99 with pre-orders starting on November 9 exclusively at Three.

The Xiaomi Redmi 6A will be available to pick up from Three priced at £19 upfront and £12 per month contract. It comes in Transparent Titanium color and will be available through Three, Amazon, Argos, John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse, Currys PC World, Very, Mobile Phones Direct, Katana and Mi.com.

The dual-SIM (Nano) Redmi 6 Pro runs Android 8.1 Oreo, and sports a 5.84-inch full-HD+ (1080x2280 pixels) LCD panel with a 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch.

We've known for a while that Xiaomi had partnered with Three to bring its devices to the United Kingdom, alongside opening up its own store, but now we've finally learnt which devices will be coming to the network.

Xiaomi will also open an authorised store in central London on November 19, 2018.

Xiaomi's entry into the United Kingdom follows its arrival in France and Italy this May, and the official entry last November into Spain, its first Western European market, where it had already become the third largest smartphone vendor.

Today we witness a new chapter in Xiaomi's global expansion journey, underpinned by our global ambitions.

As of today, Xiaomi is now sold in 74 markets worldwide.
