The network is actively spreading information that the Chinese company Xiaomi allegedly decided to abandon the release of smartphones under its own brand and supposedly to withdraw a new one – POCOPHONE. Russian-language resources refer to the foreign site XiaomiToday as a source of data, but we could not find such news there.
As for POCOPHONE, the device under this name has really passed the FCC certification. Of course, there is a possibility that Xiaomi will decide to re-conquer the market using a new brand, but it is not large. And it is certainly premature to talk about “stopping the release of smartphones under the Xiaomi brand.” Rather, it’s about the emergence of a new sub-brand.
What Xiaomi now has to think about is the situation with the IPO , which was not at the best time: China’s trade war with the US has a negative impact on the economy as a whole and its individual players.
