Xiaomi has been able to expand rapidly in its home country thanks to razor-thin profit margins coupled with impressive specs and design. The company boasted a profit of $2.15 billion for the first half of 2013, selling over 7 million devices, and recently made headlines after poaching Google’s VP of Android, Hugo Barra.
Next month, the company will launch the Mi-3, a 5-inch handset which retails for just $327 off-contract in China for a 16GB model, with a 64GB version selling for $410. The device comes equipped with Nvidia’s Tegra 4 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel Sony camera and a 3050mAh battery.
