Xiaomi entered the Indian smartphone market in 2014 with the Mi 3. The company, which had an online-only approach, soon partnered with offline retailers and also opened its standalone Mi Home Stores across India. Xiaomi consistently has had a market share of over 25 percent in India, making it the number one smartphone brand in the company. The dominance is such that it has remained number 1 since 2017. The company offers a wide variety of smartphones across different price points under its Redmi and Mi (now Xiaomi) branding. The company entered the ultra-premium segment in India in 2021 with the Mi 11 Ultra, which was the company’s first flagship smartphone in the country. Alongside smartphones, Xiaomi also sells smart TVs, AIoT products, etc. The company has maintained its number 1 position in the smart TV category for several quarters in India. Much like its smartphones, Xiaomi also assembles its smart TVs in India under the Make in India campaign. The company has partnered with several third-party supply chains to manufacture its products within the country. Xiaomi often claims that it launches products with an honest pricing. More
