However, these figures do not represent any achieve for those in Cupertino (regarding the amount, since in profits is another story because of the increase in prices).

The story is very different with Xiaomi, who have managed to grow concerning their report of the same period but of 2016. Not only grow but devastate, and is that their sale of phones doubled. The company experienced an increase of 96.9%, going from selling 14.3 million telephones to 28.1 million. The figure means that the company now owns 7% of the total market share.
Xiaomi also grows in its country of origin
Xiaomi not only dominated the world market. The data in China has also come out, showing that within the big companies that make life in this market, Xiaomi has been the one that grew the most.

The significant innovations that the company has presented in the last year helped it to position itself so well in the market. The Xiaomi Mi MIX 2 revolutionized the way the world sees Smartphones, while the Mi 6 represents the best quality in a phone at an affordable price. It is expected that Xiaomi will bring many devices at MWC 2018, soon to be held in Barcelona.
