Xiaomi Targets 100 Million Units Shipping for 2018 – $1 Billion Loan Granted

Things are getting a lot better for Xiaomi as it topped the list of largest growing smartphone manufacturer in the world with shipments reached to 23.16 million units in Q2 2017. Last year, Xiaomi’s only problem was the slow production of the smartphones. We remember how the units were sold out in flash in China as well as India. Now with the current statistics, Xiaomi has improved a lot.
