Xiaomi surpasses 25 million smartphone sales in India

Victor, 01 September 2017

Conquering the Indian market is definitely the next big cornerstone to pursue on the smartphone road map. Xiaomi clearly has its sights set on the price ever since it started catering to a demographic Google so affectionately refers to as "the next billion users".

The Chinese company's VP Manu Kumar Jain took to twitter today to put the success in perspective, boasting the fastest ever climb to 25 million unit sales. The feat only took 3 years and 1 month and is a local record.

That roughly boils down to a whopping 22 000 smartphone sales per day, primarily from the company's value Redmi line. And while Xiaomi still gets its fair share of criticism, mainly for insufficient support reach throughout the vast country, its achievements deserve admiration.

The same goes for Xiaomi's future plans for the region, specifically its partnership with Google on Android One.

In celebration of the event, Manu Kumar Jain has also promised to give away a Xiaomi Mi Mix unit to one lucky winner. All you have to do to enter is re-tweet his announcement post and keep your fingers crossed.

no xiaomi will get more market share and miui user/fan base because of low price so in future even if they increase the price some of this fans will still buy.

you can remove any bloatware from xiaomi phones if you unlock bootloader. Rooting does not void warranty with xiaomi.
