Xiaomi India has launched its first Mi Home Experience Store in New Delhi on Wednesday. The Store is located in N Block at Connaught Place.
At present, there are two Mi Home Experience Stores in Chennai and Mumbai, and 36 Mi Home stores across India.
Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India said: "Mi Home Experience Store is an opportunity for us to provide our Mi Fans with the best that we have to offer and in return gain their valuable feedback to continue to delight them with our offerings. We have always given a lot of significance to the feedback that we have received from our users and this is another step towards that direction.
Mi Home Experience Store will provide Mi fans the opportunity to explore and assess a wide array of smart Xiaomi products under one roof.
This will also help the company gather significant feedback from Mi fans and incorporate it into its future offerings in India, the company said. Xiaomi also plans to open 100 Mi Home stores in 2018.
The new store will showcase several products like Mi Home Thermostat Electric Kettle, Mi Electric Scooter, Mi Rice Cooker to Mi Smart Scale, and Ninebot Mini among other products on display. Other products such as Mi Water Purifier, comes with high-precision water filtration technology, which effectively removes antibiotics, scale, bacteria and heavy metals from the water, making it safe to drink.
Mi Home Thermostat Electric Kettle is another product that is made of high-quality material and has triple intimate electrical protection design to prevent electrical shocks and leakages.
Xiaomi will also be displaying the Mi Robot Vacuum, which is a highly intelligent home cleaning device that has 12 sensors to guide it through your home. Not only this, but the experience store will also have a plethora of household technology products that are designed to enrich and promote a healthier lifestyle.
The company will be collecting feedback from the customers and then Xiaomi will bring that product to the Indian market, the company further said.
According to a new Canalys Research, Chinese smartphone Xiaomi shipped over 9 million units, giving it a market share of just over 31 percent, the highest ever for a vendor since Q1 2014.
"Xiaomi is becoming a force to be reckoned with in India," said Canalys Research Analyst Ishan Dutt.
Dutt said: " Xiaomi's recently launched Redmi 5, Redmi 5A and Redmi Note 5 have seen runaway success, with the Redmi 5A reaching record sales of 3.5 million in the quarter. In comparison, Samsung's best-selling device, the J7 Nxt, shipped just 1.5 million units.
The market also continues to consolidate, with smaller vendors finding it extremely difficult to succeed in the face of Xiaomi's growing prominence, the firm said.
The top four vendors accounted for about 75 percent of all smartphone shipments to India, with Xiaomi and Samsung accounting for 56 percent.
