Most of its mobile phones, which it sells only online, look like Apple’s iPhones — but are much cheaper. China’s Xiaomi, after having eaten into the US-based handset giant’s market share on home turf, has now set its eyes on India and plans to replicate its model here, too.

Hugo Barra, who recently came from Android to join as Xiaomi’s vice-president, sounds quite resolute when he says his company’s model, with which it beat Apple in China, will help it garner volume market share in India, too. The trump card, probably, are its price points: It will sell its mobile handsets at around Rs 20,000 —less than half the starting price of Apple’s phones.

Within two years of the August 2011 release of its first smartphone, Xiaomi’s share of the Chinese smartphone market reached five per cent in the second quarter of 2013, compared with Apple’s 4.8 per cent, according to research agency Canalys.

Barra, in charge of the company’s products and operations in all markets outside of mainland China, recently said India was one of the sweet spots for Android smartphone maker Xiaomi, as the equation of quality and affordability worked well in the world’s second-most-populous country and the third-largest smartphone market. Markets like Russia, Indonesia, Latin America and Thailand are also on Xiaomi’s radar.

Among Xiaomi’s innovative ideas is selling its products only online. Every Tuesday, at noon Beijing time, it unveils a new batch of smartphones (100,000 units) after analysing user feedback. Apple studies feedbacks only once a year.

At present, Indians could buy Xiaomi smartphones at retail website www.xiaomiworld.com. The company then supplies the product through courier. A customer can pay through Paypal. These products are also available on some of the Indian e-commerce sites like www.91mobiles.com, www.olx.com, which source these from Xiaomi.

To Business Standard’s specific query on how it planned to sell its products in India, the company did not respond.

An analyst tracking Xiaomi said it might take the general retail route to push products here, apart from selling online. Sources tracking the company also say it would develop some India-specific low-cost models to take on Indian smartphone manufacturers.

The company’s latest flagship smartphone, the Mi-3, sold 100,000 units in less than 86 seconds of its launch on the company’s retail website.

If Xiaomi does enter India, it will also face fierce competition from South Korean major Samsung Electronics and home-grown Micromax. Here, Samsung leads the smartphone market, with a 26 per cent volume share as of the second quarter of 2013, according to International Data Corporation (IDC). It is followed by Micromax (22 per cent). Apple’s share is below three per cent. Smartphone sales in India are estimated at $35-40 million units a year, compared with China’s 360 million shipments.

According to a Canalys report, India’s smart-phone market has grown 129 per cent in the September 2013 quarter, while the growth rates in China were 108 per cent and globally about 50 per cent.

Xiaomi has its cost advantage but it might also face competition from home-grown companies like Micromax and Karbonn, as most of their smartphones are priced below Rs 20,000.

据印度《商业标准报》11月6日报道,中国手机制造商小米公司凭借网络销售渠道,价格低廉的手机产品,在中国本土市场甩开了苹果公司。如今,这家酷似苹果的手机公司卯足劲头,欲在印度市场大展拳脚。

前谷歌安卓产品管理副总裁、现任小米全球副总裁雨果•巴拉(Hugo Barra)对小米产品表现出十足信心。2011年8月,小米在中国发行第一部智能手机。到2013年第二季度的短短两年内,其市场份额已到达5%,与此 相比苹果市场份额仅为4.8%。中国智能手机市场的成功经验将助小米赢得印度市场一臂之力。其最大优势就是价格实惠:一部手机仅售2万卢比(约合人民币 1978元),还不到苹果手机价格的一半。

巴拉负责中国大陆以外公司所有产品的生产和运营。他最近指出,小米手机质优价廉,印度作为世界第二人口大国和第三大智能手机市场,是小米安卓系统智能手机的理想销售地。俄罗斯、印度尼西亚、拉美地区及泰国都是小米销售市场。

一位长期追踪小米的分析师说,除了网上销售,小米也会采用常规销售手段。知情人也透露,小米将开发更具印度特色、成本低的智能手机。公司最新旗舰手机小米3发布86秒后就卖出了10万部。

报道指出,小米手机进军印度市场将会面临韩国三星电子及印度著名手机制造商Micromax激烈竞争。在印度,三星引领智能手机市场,国际数据咨询公司 (IDC)资料显示,2013年第二季度,三星占印度手机市场26%份额,Micromax 以22%紧随其后,苹果却低于3%。(来源:环球网)

Why can’t India make such consumer products? We are only helping china become richer and stronger by buying it’s products. With the money it earns by selling others’ copied products at cheaper prices, it builds it’s military and then bullies India at the border! The chinese plan to colonize and neutralize economically and militarily!Wake up Indians!Work hard and build your economy and vote out the corrupt government in 2014.

为什么印度做不出这种消费性产品?我们不断买中国货,帮助中国变得越来越富裕,越来越强大。中国通过低价销售山寨货赚了钱后,转而打造强大的军队,然后在边界上欺负印度!中国计划从经济和军事上殖民印度!印度人该清醒了!努力工作,打造强大经济,到2014年用选票把腐败的政府赶下台。

The article mentions ” Smartphone sales in India are estimated at $35-40 million units a year, compared with China’s 360 million”.
shipments.Here the sales figures of smart phones in India and China are being compared,thus how can $35-40 million units be correct, either it is 35-40 million units or sales of $35-40 million. Two parameters, $ & number of units, cannot simultaneously be operable.

文章说:“印度智能机年销量估计3500-4000万部,而中国年出货量3.6亿部。”

这里比较了印度和中国的销售数据,不过“$3500-4000万部”的写法不正确,要么是3500-4000万部,要么是3500-4000万美元。两个参数,两种单位,不能混在一起使用。

  2. 中国计划从经济和军事上殖民印度!
    这是印度之福;如此,印度很快就能有高铁、高速和厕所了 :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    • 以前不是说印度的贸易额占中国对外的1%吗?其实就算2%,我国都丢掉不要,剩下这98%会让我国经济崩溃吗?这神经病国度的智商底下,是不能理解这个的,就烦它们天天喊它们国民抵制中国货,能让中国经济崩溃的!

  3. 说句题外话,我和三哥三姐聊天的时候,他们都认为中国人很富。我很诧异,问为什么。他们说,中国人手机坏了就扔了。我更诧异,原来以为凤凰卫视的主播在胡扯,现在发现三哥三姐真的认为手机坏了就扔这样的勾当是有钱人干的。 😯 😯 😯
    我问三哥三姐们手机坏了怎么办,他们说在印度有收的,而且价格还不低。至于收了之后怎么处理的,他们也不清楚了。总之,三哥三姐们修手机的钱也不低,但似乎更倾向于直接卖给回收的了。 😯 😯 😯

  4. 为什么印度做不出这种消费性产品?我们不断买中国货,帮助中国变得越来越富裕,越来越强大。—因为印度人最擅长自大 卖嘴 嫉妒和幸灾乐祸,懒惰弱智,盲目极端的民族主义

    • 每次小白去印度,我都特别担心。让我更加担心地是,每次他回来之后,情绪似乎都不是很积极。我不知道发生了什么。小白,坚强点 😳

    • 三哥能搞出个啥啊?!啥也搞不出来。老毛子1991以来,在国际商品市场上除了石油天然气,好歹还有个那个卡巴斯基软件。国际商品市场中三哥有啥?啥也没有!
      要想有商品,就得有制造业,就得有土地政策,交通设施,电力,熟练劳动力。这些三哥统统没有。
      以前,中国也没有彩电。后来,市场开放后中国很快就能自己生产了;关键,中国尝到了甜头,所以天天高喊改革开放。看看三哥,市场开放后,没有多少人尝到甜头,所以,三哥仍然天天喊保护。这样下去,三哥永远发展不起来制造业,永远没有成熟的商品,就会永远的羡慕妒忌恨下去。

      • 中国是最后一个能实现工业现代化的国家,还不时看着国外的酸脸,动不动要毁了你的工业,人家看到的是中国恐怖的工业化后,人民恐怖的资源消耗,我们消耗了一点,他们就少一点,在几个流氓工业国家中不希望有国家实现工业化,我们这么艰难的走过来了,将来还要赶上去,印度根本不要想,投入太恐怖了,回报有时来的很晚,而且面临技术封锁和国外的破坏,自己内部也没有拼死一搏的决心,人的技能水平也不能跟中国比,除非科技大飞跃,人类的能源无限了,基本印度就有希望了,

  5. 希望印度早早感受下小米手机的魅力吧~优美的界面宛如漂亮女孩的莎丽~更多人性化操作简直就像配置了强有力的机械骨骼,只为了把你打造得更强大!~(我在打广告吗?对小米…我要表达的意思其实很复杂~)

    • 现在可欣的是土鳖不止有小米,而是整个智能手机都带起来了,除了小米外能攒出同级别的手机厂商多了去了。可怜的三锅还停留在网上屁民发牢骚为什么不能攒,呵呵

      • 他们做不出来,不发牢骚又能干啥?对了,他们能贴牌,许多印度厂商都是从国定制,做出来后贴上他们的牌子。不明真相的三哥三姐们还以为他们自己能生产,等有时间把手机拆开一下,三哥晕了,Made In China :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

        • 这个是知道的。而且三锅整天说我鳖山寨他们日用品或医药品牌什么的,也都是由来到土鳖采购的奸商阿三让土鳖厂家oem帖山寨牌的。不然土鳖厂商谁那么蛋疼去刻意山寨一个三流国家的不知名品牌?

    • 小米手机的特色不是手机,而是MIUI,几大系统都用过了,就感觉MIUI用着最舒服,体验最好,iOS体验挺好,但是太封闭了,Wp最坑爹,根本就没有体验这一说,很多设计简直是反人类,而且比苹果还封闭 👿 ,原生安卓感觉还凑活,黑莓系统和塞班现在太落伍了。

  6. 可能我比较另类,以前一直用windows6.5的,看到很多朋友都在用安卓系统的电话,上当受骗也跟风买了一台,越用越不习惯,后来还是老老实实去买台诺基亚的Windows手机。真没发现安卓好在哪里

  7. 其实中低端的手机才真正适合印度的广大基层消费市场。
    对于很多有事业有本位的人来说,手机无非功能:打电话,发短信。真正忙于事业的人是不会有时间上闲网打游戏的。
    当然,处于对更高质量的追求,买高档的手机也无可厚非,但是自己本土的工业不行,就得借助国外产品了,贸易本来就是促进双方发展一样很重要的手段。可能是最近上了探测卫星,过分自信了。

  8. 买了米3,体验还不错,不过3000mah用起来感觉还是小了,每天下班手机差不多都没电了。还有充电较慢,有时候充得尽然没有用得快~~不过性能反应各方面还是很牛逼的~~

  9. 安卓让小米,华为,中兴,联想,步步高,金立等等,上了档次了。要是在音乐手机的年代,上述的哪里叫品牌,我都按山寨机来看的。
