"The objective is to work closely (on the business side) with these companies", Lei said. According to the report, Xiaomi India recorded a growth rate of about 300% over the same period of past year, making it the fastest growing smart phone brand in the Indian market. Samsung also had 23.5% share in the quarter.

Being a public company has its advantages and disadvantages. "We haven't made any losses except in 2015 when we lost a little bit of money because of working on global expansion".
