Commenting on Xiaomi’s growth, Manu Kumar Jain, Managing Director, Mi India, said:
With Mi, we have focused on bringing breakthrough technologies and setting newer benchmarks for mobile innovation. With the launch of Mi 10 and Mi 11 series in the market, we have empowered our users with premium experience, on the back of superior design, best in class features and functionality. It is because of the trust of our consumers and Mi Fans that we have been able to reduce the gap with one of the leading premium smartphone brands. While these are early growth numbers, we are overwhelmed to see consumers upgrading to premium devices under the Mi portfolio. As we continue to grow in the market, we will look at bringing more powerful devices, and work towards making Mi a premium aspirational brand in India.
