Day after day, more devices join the Pie slice of the Android version distribution pie, and today's addition is the Android One-toting Xiaomi Mi A1. Well, to be frank, we're not really sure if the update is rolling out correctly, has been pulled, or what, because reports are quite contradictory.

The Xiaomi Mi Box S 4K streaming player is down to just $40 at Walmart

Xiaomi's Mi Box S is already an almost-too-good-to-be-true bargain. For less than the price of a Chromecast Ultra, you get 4K, HDR streaming apps on your TV — and it works as a Chromecast receiver. The streaming box was down to $50 last month, and now it's even cheaper: just 40 bucks.

Xiaomi sells 700k Pocophone F1s in a little over three months

Xiaomi is celebrating a strange milestone today. According to a tweet by the company's global VP, Xiaomi has 700,000 users, which presumably means the company has seen about as many sales. It's an odd milestone to be celebrating — 700K in "over three months" doesn't exactly roll off the tongue — but it's a good indicator of the company's success in its Pocophone experiment, especially when compared to OnePlus.

[Update: Now $45] Xiaomi Mi Box S is now $50 ($10 off), or $70 bundled with Google Home Mini

Xiaomi's new Mi Box S was announced just last month, in unison with Google's Pixel 3 reveal, at the reasonable price of $60.

Now, for Black Friday, the big box retailer is discounting the gadget even further.

Xiaomi released its gaming phone, the Black Shark, in China last April. The black and neon green device packs some impressive specs for its modest price, including a Snapdragon 845 and either six or eight gigs of RAM. At the time, there was no word on whether it'd be coming to the rest of the world, but now, the company has announced that it'll release in Europe on November 16.

Xiaomi Mi 8 Pro hands-on: IR face unlock and extra RAM for the same price as a OnePlus 6T

At an event held in the depths of the historic brutalist Barbican Centre in London yesterday, Xiaomi formally announced its entry into the UK market. Numerous devices were introduced on stage, including various smart home products, but the Mi 8 series and Mi Band 3 were the main attractions. Everything here had already been unveiled in China and some of it is already selling in other regions, too.

The Mi 8 Explorer Edition caught our eye previously, largely due to its semi-transparent rear cover with insides made to look like internal components. It's essentially a Mi 8 Pro, and that's the name it's been given in the UK, with no other color options available.

Xiaomi enters UK market with Mi 8 Pro, Band 3, and much more, targeting budget-conscious consumers

Considering it was only founded in 2010, Xiaomi's rise has been meteoric. It's now the fourth largest smartphone maker in the world, leading the field at home in China and in the second largest market, India. This year has seen the company's expansion into Western Europe, where it's already reached number four in sales despite only selling in a handful of countries so far. That position is set to be bolstered by Xiaomi's official launch in the UK.
