Xiaomi, that clocked over $1 billion in revenue in India last year, shipped 23.16 million smartphones in the second quarter of 2017, a whopping increase of 70 per cent from the previous quarter.
This comes after a period of continuous investment in technology, integrating sales across the online and offline platforms and increased growth in global markets especially in India.
