An open letter from our CEO

(简体中文版请见下方。Please scroll down for the Simplified Chinese version.)

Dear Xiaomi colleagues,

On the first working day of 2020, I would like to extend my New Year greetings to you all.

2019 has come to an end. For Xiaomi, it was a year of both prudence and drive. As our industry entered a critical transition from 4G to 5G, we focused on healthy operations to drive our capabilities in building better quality products, innovation and delivering new products in the future.

We also made a series of strategic changes in branding, product portfolio and organization structure which have laid a solid foundation for the company’s long term development.

Our smartphone business officially launched a dual brand strategy. The smartphone brand separation of Redmi from Xiaomi and their independent operations brought us great success. We continue to be ranked fourth globally in regards of smartphone shipment and our prudence has helped us achieve a healthy inventory level. This differentiates us from the industry and enables us to enter the 5G era without undue burden.

2019 was a significant year for our global expansion, our overseas revenue now accounts for almost half of our total group revenue. Xiaomi is now truly a global technology leader. Our internet business also became more diversified and our AIoT business retained its global leadership. Xiaomi is now widely known as a “true AIoT leader” in the industry.

In 2019, Xiaomi made the Fortune Global 500 list for the first time, becoming the youngest Fortune Global 500 company. What is more important is that we laid the foundation of a strong organization management. We have taken steps to streamline the organization structure, and our senior management rotation is in full swing. We promoted many young and capable leaders, refined our talent grading and selection mechanisms and began training programs at Qinghe University. A deep talent pool will go a long way in contributing to Xiaomi’s long term growth.

On this occasion, I want to express my utmost appreciation to each and every Xiaomi colleague. Thank you for your courage, resilience, and dedication. You have all worked very hard. I am also thankful to all your family members and loved ones, a sincere thank you for their understanding and support.

2020 will be a year of breakthroughs for our 5G business and a critical year for us to further push forward our “smartphone+AIoT” strategy.

It is clear to us the strategic importance of “5G+AI+IoT and next generation super internet”. 5G is not solely about a faster smartphone network. “5G+AIoT” represents Xiaomi’s ability to offer services across our comprehensive product line. It gives us the chance to offer unique and pioneering AIoT use cases.

“5G+AI+IoT and next generation super internet” perfectly fits Xiaomi’s Internet DNA. We can bring truly smart and innovative technology and enable everyone to enjoy a better life through this. At the beginning of 2019, we talked about going “All in AIoT”, and planned an investment of RMB 10 billion (~USD 1.43 billion) in this field over the next five years. After a year of verification, we are increasing our investment in this. We now believe we will invest at least RMB 50 billion (~USD 7.18 billion) over the five years in “5G+AIoT” to double down on our lead in the field. This is to ensure we win in this new smart era.

Today is the first working day of 2020. 2020 also marks the 10th year of Xiaomi’s entrepreneurial journey.

The New Year’s first working day brings us two pieces of good news. The first is that our Mi TV team has celebrated Mi TV’s No.1 ranking in China shipments (and top five globally). We accomplished an unprecedented record, becoming the first smart TV brand to ship more than 10 million units annually in China ever.

The second is that Mr. Chang Cheng has just joined our big family. Mr. Chang, with extensive experience in the field of consumer electronics, will serve as Vice President of Xiaomi Group and will be responsible for Xiaomi smartphone products. We welcome and embrace all outstanding talents who truly believe in our values. We will continue to attract more top talents from around the world.

In addition, I kindly urge all Xiaomi colleagues to remember the following five guiding principles. That we must make friends with our users, continue to bring the best price to performance hardware to them, prioritize technological innovation, work hard to deliver the best quality products, and embrace our entrepreneurial spirit.

We will celebrate the 10th birthday of Xiaomi this April with all Xiaomi colleagues, all our friends who have helped us along the way, and our Mi Fans who have always supported us. We must remain true to our roots and remember how we managed to come so far. Xiaomi is still a young company. We are here today because of our dreams, and we will have a bright future because we continue to dream.

I am looking forward to Xiaomi’s next 10 years.

Lei Jun

我们已经明确了“5G+AI+IoT 下一代超级互联网”的战略方向,5G并不只是手机的网络性能,AIoT也不只是AI技术或IoT平台,“5G+AIoT”是贯穿集团全产品、全平台、全场景的服务能力,是小米互联网基因在新时代全面爆发的“题眼”,是我们真正为用户带来智能科技美好生活的关键。去年初,我们提出All in AIoT,5年投入100亿,经过这一年的实践充分验证了战略方向的可行性、正确性和战略投入的必要性,所以,我们现在进行加码升级:

在“5G+AIoT”战场上,未来5年我们将至少投入500亿元!我们要把AIoT、智能生活的持续优势转化为智能全场景的绝对胜势,彻底确立智能时代的王者地位。

今天是2020年的第一个工作日,也是小米创业历程走进的第10个年头。

新年开门就有两个好消息。第一件是小米电视举行了一个庆功仪式,庆祝小米小米电视稳居中国第一、世界前五的同时,还创造了一项前无古人的新纪录:小米成为中国电视史上首个在中国年出货量突破1000万台的电视品牌!

第二件事,就在刚刚,我们新招募的一位集团高管也加入了我们的大家庭。常程在消费电子领域拥有丰富的经验,他将出任小米集团副总裁,负责手机产品规划等。只要真心认同小米价值观,只要能力出众,我们都求贤若渴,将以海纳百川的姿态在全球持续招募更多行业顶尖优秀人才。

此外,我要求全体小米同学做好5个坚持:我们要坚持和用户做朋友,坚持性价比战略,坚持科技创新,坚持真材实料、死磕品质,坚持创业心态和奋斗精神。

我们将在今年4月迎来小米十周年庆,届时我们也将举办庆典,和所有小米人、所有帮助过我们的朋友、支持我们的米粉一起,庆祝这个值得纪念的时刻。更重要的是,我们要不断提醒自己为什么而出发,又因为什么才有今天的成绩。小米还是一家年轻的公司,因为理想,才走到今天;也正因为年轻、因为理想,小米征途还长,但前路更宽!

我们拥有无比坚定的信心和无比坚强的韧性,小米全新的十年一定更辉煌!

Xiaomi, OPPO and vivo partner to bring new wireless file transfer system to global users

“Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance” to enable seamless file transfer with just one click
New file transfer system launched in anticipation of 5G adoption

Beijing, CHINA, January 2, 2020 – Global technology leader Xiaomi announced today its partnership with mobile phone giants OPPO and vivo on bringing the innovative new wireless file transfer system to consumers in global markets.

This is the latest move of the cross-brand initiative “Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance”, a new system that enables seamless cross-brand file transfer with just one click.

This wireless transfer feature has been available on MIUI 11*. Users of Xiaomi smartphones can experience the feature with Mi Share.

Xiaomi, OPPO and vivo have established the “Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance” to provide users with an unparalleled file transfer experience. The new wireless file transfer system will allow users of these three brands to easily transfer files between their mobile devices without the need for any third-party applications or network data. This system also supports a wide range of files, including photos, videos, music, documents and more.

“This expansion of the Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance to global users all the more underlines Xiaomi’s longstanding commitment of bringing innovation to everyone. By joining hands with vivo and OPPO, two industry leaders that have a strong user base, we are expecting to benefit smartphone users globally. Xiaomi will continue to bring more strategic partnerships of this sort to our users and Mi Fans,” said Chew Shou Zi, Senior Vice President of Xiaomi.

Instant and stable connection with low power consumption 

The wireless file transfer system provides a streamlined mobile experience which does not require internet connection. It uses Bluetooth for fast pairing and WiFi P2P (Peer to Peer) technology for the data transfer, bringing together an instant, stable and high-speed connection between devices, as well as low power consumption. This technology delivers an average transfer speed of 20MB/s. Also, the WiFi P2P technology does not interrupt the WiFi connection, meaning users remain connected and can continue their activities on the device during the file transfer.

For example, sharing photos to a smartphone of a different brand is much more convenient: once the file sharing feature is turned on on both devices, all that the users have to do is tap the “Share” button under a photo, select the other device, and tap “Send”.

Customer-first approach to drive healthy industry development

The Peer-to-Peer Transmission Alliance is a collective commitment between Xiaomi, OPPO and vivo to drive the next generation of mobile experience. Together, the three brands will continue to openly collaborate to deliver new technological breakthroughs. The alliance is also looking forward to welcoming more brands to join for an expansion that is beneficial to all.

*This feature is compatible with devices running Android Pie or later versions (not including Redmi 6 Pro, Redmi 6, Redmi 6A, Redmi 7A, Redmi 7, Redmi S2, Redmi 8, Redmi 8A, Redmi Note 8, Redmi Note 8T). Please refer to the announcements from OPPO and vivo for the availability of this feature.

Wish you a happy New Year!

Dear users, Mi Fans, media friends, business partners, potential customers and all our friends,

Good day!

No matter where you are, it is just a few hours away from a full wrap up of the second decade of the 21st century.

Our products have been recognized by ever more users in over 90 markets around the globe, in over 40 of which we ranked top five in terms of smartphone shipments as of the third quarter 2019.

Thanks to our “smartphone+AIoT” dual core strategy, as of the end of the third quarter of 2019, the number of connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices on Xiaomi’s IoT platform reached approximately 213 million units, excluding smartphones and laptop, up by 62.0% year-on-year.

With the deployment of 5G, we have also helped drive the large scale commercialization by bringing the best price to performance 5G smartphones to the market, starting from China.
