Xiaomi Unveils Second Manufacturing Unit in India in Partnership With Foxconn

Reaffirming its commitment to 'Make in India' after logging $1 billion in revenue in the country last year, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi on Monday announced its second manufacturing unit in partnership with Taiwanese electronics major Foxconn in Andhra Pradesh.

Xiaomi to Set up Two Manufacturing Plants in India

Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has planned to set up two manufacturing plants in India and the company would be launching more devices in 2016.

Although Lei didn’t reveal more details, the figure itself surprised many industry watchers because Xiaomi used to rely entirely on the online flash sales of bargain Android smartphones.

It shipped more than 70 million smartphones last year, missing its own target of 80-100 million. Its China market share grew 14% to 14.9%, while Huawei’s share grew 52% to 14.3%.   Apple   AAPL +0.13%   Inc. also had 14.3% of the market, according to consultancy Counterpoint Research. A
