However, the brand name of Xiaomi became one and the same with low-cost Smartphones, over the past couple of years. The company’s first Smartphone was launched in August 2011; despite that it is a relatively young Smartphone manufacturer.
Xiaomi was quick to rise to popularity in Asian markets, while it is now the second largest Smartphone market in China, following Huawei. The company was able to sell three million Smartphones in little above one year in India, as it is a country with an emerging market with the same focus on cost-efficient devices where Xiaomi launched the maiden edition of its phone in July 2014.

Although the company already has an online presence in the country, observation revealed that its implication is at this time limited to accessories like reasonable Mi Band or power banks.
