Xiaomi has sold around 1 million phones in India this year.
Last year Xiaomi had tried its hands on Indian market. For many months now, it’s been holding pretty much weekly flash sales in partnership with Flipkart, the biggest retailer in the subcontinent.
Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi’s boss of India has announced earlier via Twitter that the company has already managed to sell more than one million smartphones over there.
It’s only the beginning of an amazing journey & we’re aiming for the stars!

That’s quite a surprise because Xiaomi is new to India and that too a Chinese company but certainly impressive, given how limited Xiaomi’s phone supplies have been for the subcontinent. It definitely looks like the smartphone maker has somewhat underestimated the demand for its products in India, which may mean it will manage to sell even more units next year.
On the other hand, companies such as OnePlus and even Micromax are anxious to steal customers away from Xiaomi. Also Xiaomi may come up with different and variety of phones to reach to a wider range of Indian customers so this is surely going to be an interesting year.
