Xiaomi, also known as the “Apple of China”, has been expanding to other countries, such as Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and more.
The company is also preparing to launch in India as soon as next week. Recently, Xiaomi posted a teaser on their website, hinting at the launch of their first smartphone on July 8th.
The company is also asking users to guess the device Xiaomi will launch on July 8th and win the device through the promotion. As of now, there’s no word about which device will see the light of the day in India, but the sources of BGR India suggest its going to be Mi3 and RedMi, along with a few accessories to go with it, including a 10,400 mAh power bank.
Xiaomi has received its fair share of success in China, and other regions where it launched. Recently, the company announced they sold 26.1 million smartphones during the first half of the year, which is way more than they were expecting — even higher than the number they sold in the entire 2013.
India is a very big market, with demand for budget-friendly smartphones. There are a few OEMs already in the market such as Micromax and Lava who are offering budget devices to consumers, even high-end ones but at a very pocket-friendly price tag. Well, July 8th is just a few days away, and we’ll update you as soon as Xiaomi launches a smartphone.
