Founded in April 2010, Xiaomi is currently the world’s fourth-largest smartphone brand, and has established the world’s leading consumer IoT platform, with more than 235 million smart devices connected.
In July 2019, the company made to the Fortune Global 500 list for the first time, and was also the youngest company to do so.
Earlier on March 31, the smartphone maker said its supply capacity recovered to 90 percent of normal levels, and the company remains optimistic about its future prospects, despite the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Xiaomi, which is the top player in the Indian smartphone market, recorded a 17.7 percent year-on-year increase in revenue to RMB 205.84 billion (about Rs 2.18 lakh crore) in 2019. Nearly half of its smartphone revenue (RMB 122.1 billion) came from overseas markets, including India.
"Despite the impact of COVID-19, we remain optimistic about our future prospects. To date, our supply capacity has recovered to 90 percent of normal levels," Xiaomi Chairman Lei Jun said in a letter to investors.
