外文标题：Xiaomi is the new No. 3 in the global smartphone market: Report
BEIJING: China's Xiaomi has become the world's third-largest smartphone vendor just three years after first hitting the market, trailing only Samsung Electronics and Apple, according to a new industry study.
Strategy Analytics said Xiaomi accounted for 6% of all 320 million smartphones shipped during July-September. Samsung made up 25%, down from 35% a year earlier due to rising competition from several directions.
Apple's share also fell slightly to 12%.
"Xiaomi was the star performer," Strategy Analytics executive director Neil Mawston said in a statement.
“小米是明星演员。”Strategy Analytics的执行理事Neil Mawston在一份声明中称。
"Samsung continues to face tough competition from Apple at the higher-end of the smartphone market, from Xiaomi and Huawei in the middle-tiers, and from Lenovo and others at the entry-level."
Xiaomi has been the top seller in its home market of China and recently entered India, where it sells phones exclusively through e-commerce site Flipkart.
Vice president Hugo Barra told Reuters in Bangalore last month that the company aimed to sell 100,000 phones a week in India in October when the country celebrates Diwali.

Great for a company to rise so much in just 3 years. The tough part is now to maintain the position. They are several players out there now for smartphones
