Within five years of launching operations in India, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has clocked the sales of over 100 million phones in India till August 2019, well ahead of other competitors, reports Economic Times.

This makes Xiaomi the only brand in any country to have sold over 100 million phones within five years. Xiaomi's vice president and India's head, Manu Jain has hailed the development as a great milestone.

Jain said, "The biggest number that any other brand – some that existed before us and some that came to India after us that are now among the top five – was able to sell was 43 million, followed by third-largest at 30 million."

The Chinese technology giant has been doubling down its commitment to Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi's flagship 'Make in India' programme and is rapidly expanding its domestic production facilities. The company presently runs three plants in India, and it produces as many as three phones every second. This results in an annual capacity of producing 24 million phones.
