Xiaomi Sells 18.7 Million Smartphones in 2013, Plans Expansion to Singapore
Xiaomi, one of the most popular local brands in China, has announced in a recent tweet that it managed to sell no less than 18.7 million smartphones in 2013. This is a great achievement for the company, especially since it was initially aiming at selling only 15 million devices during the past year. Furthermore, the vendor unveiled that it managed to move more than 3 million units during December alone, another great achievement. Starting with this year, Xiaomi is set to make its handsets available for purchase in more markets around the world, following Hong Kong and Taiwan, where it started selling phones last year. Hugo Barra, former Google employee, has unveiled recently that Singapore will be one of the next markets targeted by Xiaomi, and that India, Russia, Indonesia, Latin America, and Thailand might follow no long after that.
