Xiaomi makes smartphones.
Vice-President Xiaomi Hugo Barra admitted that some of the gadgets the Chinese giant sells at cost.
Thus, the sharp fall in the sales of smartphones in China and in the world will not have much impact on the company, because profit growth will depend on sales of smart home devices and software.
“In fact, we distribute our smartphones, not earning money out of it. We are more concerned with long-term sources of income. We could sell 10 billion smartphones and not earn a penny,” says Hugo Barra.
The company expects sales of its smart appliances, for example, photochemically and rice cookers, is achieved in 2016 figure 1.5 milliard dollars
Note that in January of 2017 Xiaomi debuts at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, presenting on the US market its new product. This will be the first large-scale entry of the company into the us market.
