    While the company has done well in the online segment, Xiaomi India seems to be reaching a new milestone in India's offline smartphone industry now. Besides, the company has stated that they were able to reach such figures largely because of the sales of smartphones like Redmi Note 4, Redmi 4, and Redmi 4A.

    In addition, the company said that many other products like audio accessories, Mi VR Play, Mi Air Purifier 2, Mi Router 3C and Mi Band 2 were sold. However, Redmi Note 4 is one of the most popular smartphones in India right now. The recently launched Xiaomi Redmi 4 was also already available offline at Mi Home store.

    Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India has commented, "It was an extremely emotional day for all of us at the opening of our first Mi Home store." He further added, "I am humbled by the unprecedented outpouring of love from all our Mi Fans who started lining up from 8 AM in the morning. I had a fun filled day with spending time with our fans, billing at the counters for our customers, entertaining people standing in the queue and answering multiple queries at Mi Home. Never did I imagine that with every passing hour we were quietly creating history in the Indian retail market."

Considering the tremendous success, it looks like the company will be opening few more Mi Home stores soon in the country.

    Earlier, during the inauguration of the store, Xiaomi had revealed its plans to open 100 Mi Home stores across India in the next two years. Thus we might be seeing the Mi Home stores being opened in metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, and Chennai, apart from Bengaluru.
