The product that the customers are looking forward to are the smartphones from Xiaomi. Now it's looking to partnerships to take it internationally. Apart from that, its initial selection of gadgets including Mi Bedside Lamp, Mi LED Smart Bulb, and Mi Smart Plug are coming to the USA market shortly - starting with the Mi Bedside Lamp in May.

Xiaomi says the bedside lamp will be available in the U.S. this month, followed by the other products.

Company Xiaomi has announced that soon its devices will add support for Google Assistant. Though "soon" is vague and non-specific, at least those of you who use Xiaomi's smart home products can rest easy that you'll soon be able to control them through Assistant.

Ben Olsen , the DC United coach, said yesterday: "The deal is not done but there is some interest from our end". All I know is there interest - where Wayne lies with it, I can't tell you at the moment.

The bedside lamp is capable of 16 million color customizations and touch-sensitive panel at the top.

If you like to check out the smart home devices, Xiaomi sells their merchandise in the USA via Amazon and also its Mi.com local store. As for the Smart Bulb, with 16 million color options, you can set the mood for any situation, and thanks to its Assistant integration, you won't have to get out of bed to turn off the lights. But what if you're happy with your bulbs or what to turn some of your other "dumb" appliances smart? To interact with the assistant you can use voice commands via the remote control the TV - no other bulky devices required. Last, the Mi Smart Plug may be used to flip normal gadgets to smart home solutions. There's also the Mi Home app, which will let you control your products all the same.

It does however mention time frames for a release, at least for the Bedside Lamp which will be available sometime in May. There's now no pricing, but seeing as Xiaomi typically prices its products in the affordable range, we'd bet it'l do the same here.
