Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi clocked sales of over 100 million smartphone in India as of August 2019, five years since it started operations, making it the first company to achieve the mark in the market ahead of competitors like Oppo and Vivo, that ventured into the Indian market at nearly the same time.
Xiaomi announced on Friday it has shipped over 100 million smartphones in India in the last five years.
In a press release, Xiaomi India managing director Manu Jain said, "It's indeed a joyous occasion for us at Xiaomi India". Xiaomi has despatched out media invites and dropped teasers for its upcoming product open, labelled below "Smarter Living 2020", which hints at more than precise a smooth TV. There have been brands who entered the market before us, yet are nowhere close to the astounding feat we have achieved...
"I'm very thankful to our 100 million smartphone consumers, and we guarantee to keep working hard on providing impeccable user experience across merchandise, after earnings and retail verticals", Jain added. Xiaomi had a share of 46.5% in online space and 28.3% share of the offline market.
Xiaomi has been the leading smartphone in India for eight consecutive quarters. The company has also revealed that the Redmi A and the Redmi Note series were the two most popular smartphones series in the country.
The company is now testing an ad switch and will roll it out to users in China with MIUI 9.8.29 update. This update will bring a toggle that will allow users to disable the ads all across the user interface.
