外文标题：Xiaomi incurs wrath in China over India map
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has inadvertently reignited a century-old geopolitical dispute between India and China, Quartz reports.
Officially the most valuable startup in the world, the company is growing at a rapid rate by selling high-quality, low-cost smartphones and other devices.
The growing market in India is key to Xiaomi's ambitions — according to a BBC report, the company hopes to sell as many as 100,000 handsets in the country every week.
But at a new product launch in Delhi, Xiaomi has managed to ignite the fury of its fans back home. As Xiaomi exec Hugo Barra spoke, behind him appeared a map of India that appeared to include a disputed border region that China claims as its own.
The photo was posted on the Chinese social network Weibo by Barra and subsequently deleted — but not before it was saved. Here it is:
Arunachal pradesh is in our country

China has disputes with almost all its neighboring countries.

Xiaomi now caught in dilemma , its own country or the huge market?
what is so great about it? arunachal pradesh is very much in India. entire world knows it.even China knows it. but to create embarrassment to India, China always makes false claims. China does the same with countries like Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Philippines etc. India should be well equipped to face China if situation demands. China is not at all a trustable neighbour.
Well done Xiaomi, for your honest representation of map. Chna should accept the verdict of people.
Shame on China. On one hand it wants to enhance its diplomatic relations with India and one the other hand it's claiming Arunachal which has been ours for decades. And China vents it's anger on Xiaomi on Arunachal issue at a time when Sushma Swaraj is visiting them. What more to expect from the Chinese now, I wonder.
I hope Xiao Mi is purely into business nothing political.
