“We will basically replicate the most successful ecosystem business model of China in India. We will have all types of services and products and integrate them. That is the Xiaomi business model. We focus on a few key things and everything else, we let our partners provide. We’ve reached just a huge scale in seven years because of this partnership/affiliation model,” said Lei.

Xiaomi is one of the leading private tech companies in the world and is the third most significant Chinese investor in India after Alibaba and Tencent. Xiaomi’s aforementioned investment targets consist of mobile internet usage expansion, and India has an ideal market to make the brand ‘one of the most prolific internet investors in India.’

The Indian smartphone market is based on the hyped constant lookout for the next new things among the shoppers. Xiaomi’s latest move for the country comprises the ambition to provide value-for-money phones and services while it is going up against the rivals like Samsung, Oppo, Vivo, and others.

In this regard, Lei was quoted as, “Any apps that increase the frequency of usage of smartphones – we are interested in this. As long as it is related to the acceleration of mobile internet. We only pick minority stakes. The purpose is to work closely (on the business side) with these companies.”
