Yesterday, an internal email written by Lei Jun, the CEO of Xiaomi, leaked and reveals that a department dedicated to photography will be created soon.
The Chinese manufacturer is now number 4 among the best firms in the world, just behind Huawei, and became very popular in Europe. After the opening of a first Spanish boutique, a French one will be opened at the end of May.
Xiaomi offers powerful smartphones, whatever the range – entry, middle, high – while combining low prices.
