Xiaomi’s market share is seeing downtrend both in homeland and India. Therefore, there will be a lot of pressure and expectations on the official, who is going occupy the position.

Maintaining the trend, Xiaomi opted for an official from the foreign land as its Vice President. We are proud to say he is none other than Manu Kumar Jain, current Managing Director of Xiaomi India.

“@manukumarjain, congratulations from the entire Xiaomi family on your promotion to Vice President of Xiaomi!” the company said in a tweet
