On October 30, Xiaomi’s founder, chairman, and CEO Lei Jun said in a note that the latest reports released by well-known research companies Canalys, IDC, and Counterpoint all show that Xiaomi has returned to the top three in global smartphone shipments.
Among them, IDC’s third-quarter global smartphone market data showed that the global smartphone shipments in the third quarter were 353.6 million units, down 1.3% from 358.5 million units in the same period last year. Xiaomi’s shipments in the third quarter increased by 42% year-on-year to 46.5 million units, ranking third.
Canalys’s global mobile phone market Q3 report data shows that in Q3 2020, global smartphone shipments fell 1% year-on-year and increased 22% month-on-month. Lei Jun pointed out, “In the third quarter of 2020, Xiaomi shipped 47.1 million units, becoming the third-largest smartphone shipment in the world.”
Lei Jun said: In Q3 2014, Xiaomi entered the world’s third place for the first time. Six years later, I am very excited to return to third place in the world.
In the past ten years, from a bowl of millet porridge to the youngest Fortune 500, Xiaomi has made a series of impressive achievements in an extremely fierce competitive environment. I am sincerely proud of this.
In the future, we will continue to adhere to the “three iron laws” that Xiaomi will never change, namely: technology-oriented, cost-effectiveness-oriented, and making the coolest products.
