Folks over in India and Asia have been enjoying Xiaomi products for a while now. However, if you’re located in North America or Europe, and you’ve been wanting to get your hands on some Xiaomi goodness, you’re going to be waiting a while.

Despite recent talks that the brand was considering a North America expansion, it doesn’t look like that’s happening. Their two newest phones are sticking to their usual markets. According to Xiaomi Vice President of International Hugo Barra, the company does have “insane global ambitions,” but due to market saturation, it will be at least a few years before their products are available in Europe or North America.

Xiaomi is still expanding, though, with plans to work their way into Brazil, Russia, Turkey, and Mexico, as well further expansionin India. Plus, they’ve invested in Misfit, which is the California-based manufacturer of the popular Shine wearable activity tracker. Barra’s comments about their global ambitions do seem to ring true, but North America is no doubt a daunting market.
