In recent years, Chinese brands have dominated the market, and Xiaomi is China’s leading smartphone manufacturer. Now, its popularity does not seem to show the slightest sign of declining, because of the 10 best-selling smartphones in Amazon India, 9 are from Chinese technology giants.

Earlier today (December 9, 2020), Manu Kumar Jain, Managing Director and Global Vice President of Xiaomi India shared a tweet on Twitter, sharing the milestones the company has achieved.
In the tweet, he shared a snapshot of Amazon’s India bestseller list. The list includes devices produced by the Redmi subsidiaries of 9 companies, showing the dominance of Chinese smartphone manufacturers on online e-commerce sites.
This list puts Redmi Note 9 Pro ahead of other models, including Redmi Note 9 Pro Max, Redmi Note 9, Redmi 9 Prime, Redmi 9 and even Redmi 9A.
The only phone not produced by Xiaomi is the Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime Edition. For those who don’t know, the sub-$300 category is the most popular smartphone segment in the region, and Chinese OEM products are concentrated in this price range.
The list also highlights the popularity of Xiaomi in the entry-level market for the mid to high-end market.
In the third quarter of 2020, Xiaomi ranked first in India with a market share of 26.1%, beating Samsung and other Chinese brands such as Oppo, Vivo and Realme.
The company first entered India in 2014, and in just a few years, it has become one of the most popular brands in the region.
Although it initially focused only on online channels, it also includes offline sales since then. However, Amazon India’s bestseller list shows that it is still popular on e-retail sites.
