Xiaomi is finally hitting the US and Europe with the launch of its online Mi.com store in a few days, but you still won’t be able to buy any of its phones.

The store will be available on June 1 in the US and June 2 in the UK, France and Germany. You’ll be able to purchase some of its accessories, including the Mi Power Bank, Mi Headphones and Mi Band.

There are two power banks available: a 10400 mAh battery that Xiaomi says can charge an iPhone 6 “at least” 3.5 times, and a slim 5000 mAh battery. These will cost you $15 and $10, respectively. The Mi Band is a simple activity tracker/pedometer which will set you back $15, while the Mi Headphones cost $80.

While phones would certainly be preferable, hopefully this is a step towards their future availability.
