Xiaomi at top position in China with maximum sales
Xiaomi India head, Manu Kumar Jain, has tweeted the company's feat of being the number one smartphone company in China. According to IHS, Xiaomi has sold 14.2 million devices out of the 99 million devices sold all over China. Xiaomi is followed by Huawei and Apple at 11 percent each and Samsung with 10 percent of the entire sales.
The 5-year-old company was adjudged as the highest evaluated start-up last year and with time they have managed to tighten their grip on Asian markets. The company is focusing on two of the biggest smartphone markets in the World, China, and India, which automatically brings them to one of the top positions in global sales as well.
Xiaomi just released the Mi 4i in an in an India-exclusive event. The device is power packed for a mid-ranger and will pose a great threat to contenders in that price bracket. It sports a FullHD LCD display and is powered by the 64-bit Snapdragon 615 chipset. Mi 4i also sports a humongous 3120mAh battery in a very slim and small form factor. The company claims to have solved the battery issue with the Mi 4i. The only fatal flaw with the device is the absence of a MicroSD slot which is a huge concern as the phone comes with a limited 16GB internal storage.
