The Redmi Note 4, it seems, has single handedly propelled Chinese brand Xiaomi to become India's top smartphone vendor. According to data released by research firm IDC, Xiaomi has joined hands with Samsung to become the number one smartphone company in the country for the quarter (Q3) ending September. Both Samsung and Xiaomi now hold 23.5 per cent share of India's smartphone market, followed by Lenovo (Motorola), Vivo and Oppo at 9 per cent, 8.5 per cent and 7.9 per cent respectively. The brand's offline expansion through preferred partner program and mi stores is also getting a good response as its shipments doubled from the last quarter," said IDC. The company plans on opening as many as 200 Mi Home stores in the country in the next two years.
