Xiaomi might still need to enter the US market properly, but this Chinese brand is doing great in other areas. According to a recent report, the company shipped 23.16 million handsets in the second quarter of this year, which translates to an impressive YoY growth of 70 percent.

Lei Jun, Xiaomi's founder and CEO, recently revealed the company's target for 2018. While the number shows that he expects the impressive growth to cool down, shipping more than 100 million smartphones in 2018 still looks impressive. Obviously, this is only a mildly optimistic forecast that might not turn into reality.

Xiaomi currently holds a 9 percent share in China, behind Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, and Apple. However, the sales numbers are impressive - over 9 million smartphones shipped in the first quarter locally. Xiaomi has no less than 123 retail stores in China and, as revealed by Lei Jun, the company plans to hire over 1,000 people in 2018 to improve its R&D capabilities.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
