This outgoing year was not bad for Xiaomi. The company recorded giant strides in many sectors and it was also able to retain its lead in the Indian market which happens to be one of its most lucrative markets. Today, the company officially released a 57-seconds flash video which shows some areas that the company holds with high esteem. Xiaomi started the video with a high cheer on the face of its president, Lei Jun. This was followed by a couple of achievements including “HKEX listing, more youthful, more tech, more art, smarter, global expansion, more advanced design, and a friendly price structure”
Xiaomi said “This is Xiaomi’s 2018 that you and I created together. In 2019, we explore together because technology brings a better life.” In the video, Xiaomi also reviewed the 2018 memorabilia with flash clips which shows: 5G connectivity, Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 10GB RAM Forbidden City Edition, and Xiaomi-KEA cooperation. The clip also reminded us of the promise that Lei Jun made many months ago that Xiaomi’s hardware business profit will never exceed 5%.
On October 26 this year, Lei Jun announced on Weibo that the shipment of Xiaomi mobile phone officially exceeded 100 million units, completing the annual task ahead of schedule. At the first China International Import Expo on November 5, Lei Jun said that Xiaomi was founded 8 years ago and is a young company. Four years ago, Xiaomi began its global development/expansion. As of the second quarter of this year, Xiaomi International’s business grew by 150%, and it has entered 82 foreign markets, becoming the top five in the 25 markets.
