Xiaomi might have struggled to keep up with the pace of other smartphone competitors in 2016, but it has plans to bounce back in the market this year. It looks like the company’s strategy to make a comeback is going to come through manufacturing phones in a second factory in India. This way, the manufacturer will be able to keep up with the spiking demand as well as continue to produce a large number of units.
Price/Performance Phones Brought the Most Revenue in India – Second Factory for Xiaomi Will Help to Reduce Supply/Demand Disparity
An emerging smartphone market like India is more attracted towards price/performance handsets such as the Redmi Note 3, and with its recent successor, the Redmi Note 4 being in high demand, the company will have to increase production to keep up with that demand. On Twitter, Manu Kumar Jain, who is the Managing Director of India has announced that Xiaomi is going to start making phones through its second manufacturing plant.
Xiaomi has been rumored to announce its Mi6 shortly, but the smartphone will initially be sold in a Snapdragon 821 variant followed by a Snapdragon 835 version in the future. According to a leaked screenshot, the alleged Snapdragon 835 version could feature an upgraded processor running at a higher clock speed coupled with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard memory.
