It's been a hectic few months for Xiaomi and the pace doesn't appearing slowing; the Chinese smartphone giant has rolled out several new products and has more in the pipeline, including its first major foray into the U.S. market, with the Android TV Mi Box.
First revealed at the Google I/O conference in May, the Mi Box, which was a collaboration with Google, supports 4K ultra-HD resolution, putting it on same playing field as other Android TV devices such as the Nvidia Shield TV and the Asus Nexus Player.
Xiaomi's Global Vice President Hugo Barra told CNBC on Friday that the Mi Box's U.S. launch would be within "the next few weeks," although an official launch date has not yet been revealed.
"Android TV is starting to gain a lot of steam, because it's a place for content and also for apps and games," Barra told CNBC's "Squawk Box" in an exclusive interview.
"We've partnered with all the key content providers and have some really interesting offerings coming in," Barra said, adding that the launch would come in time for the holidays.
Barra also told CNBC that the Chinese firm was well-aware of the hurdles of weak patent protection, particularly in the U.S. market.
"[Intellectual protection] is certainly an area of focus for us, we acquired 1,500 patents that were mostly unencumbered, and we had already acquired a number of patent portfolios ... with the goal of building this warchest that we can use for defensive purposes," he said.
"It's basically how the game is played in this particularly industry and we're pretty well-prepared," Barra added.
Xiaomi launched its online payment service Mi Pay, which combines credit card, debit cards and transportation cards on a mobile payment platform, in China last week. Barra described it as offering "highest convenience factor that urban consumers can ask for."
And just last month, the technology and electronics company released a robot vacuum, its latest product in its smart home category.
