mi6a un 2 - Xiaomi Corporation Reports Strong Operating Performance in Q2 of 2018Xiaomi Corporation has recently announced its unedited and consolidated results for the second quarter and first half of 2018, showcasing an increase of 68.3% on year-on-year revenue, and an international revenue growth of 151.7%. Adjusted profit also increased by 25.1% year-on-year.

In Q2 of 2018, Xiaomi’s smartphones segment recorded a revenue of approximately RMB30.50 billion, the equivalent of 58.7% year-on-year growth, driven by an increase in both smartphone sales and average selling price. The fastest growth was actually seen on its IoT and lifestyle products, with a growth of 104.3% year-on-year. Revenue for its Internet services also grew 63.6% year-on-year, caused primarily by increasing monetization in mainland China.

In India, Xiaomi’s ranked first in terms of market share by shipment, and second in Indonesia for smartphone shipments. Their smartphone shipment also increased by 2700% in Western Europe year-by-year. Xiaomi now ranks among the top five among the smartphone markets of 25 countries and regions.

Monthly active users of its MIUI operating system also increased by 41.7% from 146 million in Q2 of 2017 to 207 million in Q2 of 2018, driven by smartphone shipments and user opinion. As of Q2 of 2018, over 115 million IoT devices were connected to the company’s IoT platform, and nearly 170 million users now own more than five of its IoT devices.

Driven by innovation, the company recently launched its newest products for Q2 of 2018. In celebration of its 8th anniversary, the group launched the Mi 8 series smartphones on June 5, 2018. Its shipments have already exceeded 1.1 million units in June, proof of the progress in gaining foothold in the flagship category.

Xiaomi is also making breakthroughs in terms of AI Technology, with activations for its AI Speaker exceeding 2 billion within the first year of launch. Its AI Assistant has also received numerous awards.

As of the moment, Xiaomi has more than 400 stores in mainland China, and had more than 790 Mi Home stores, franchises, and authorized stores, with a supply network which exceeded 37,000 locations.

On 9 July this year, Xiaomi listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, marking a significant milestone in our journey. Eight years ago, I came up with a crazy idea, which was to build a smartphone business based on the business model of an internet company, transforming the global image of “Made in China” products and benefiting everyone across the globe with amazing products at honest pricing. The interim results that Xiaomi has announced today prove that this idea has become reality. Tapping on the Hong Kong capital market, we are full of confidence and truly excited by the prospects of the group. Xiaomi will continue building on our unique and powerful ‘triathlon’ business model to further penetrate the high-end smartphone market, introduce more IoT products to international markets, and expand our range of internet services, laying strong foundations for our revenue growth in the future ahead. Mr. Lei Jun, Xiaomi Founder, Chairman and CEO

Tokyo Game Show Special Coverage

Tokyo Game Show 2018

41711344 10155988194573337 3113579199126831104 o - We are going to Tokyo Game Show 2018

Witness this year’s biggest gaming convention in Asia, the Tokyo Game Show 2018. This September 19, our team will fly to Tokyo, Japan, to be part to TGS 2018. Special thanks to our brand partners Huawei Mobile, PLDT Home, Smart Communications and Cherry Mobile for making this coverage possible.

If the line on the demo is any indication, Biohazard RE: 2 is one of the most popular games in TGS 2018. It’s one of those games that, regardless of the time of day, the queue to the booth just won’t go shorter than 60 minutes. We decided to hold off trying our luck on the demo, maybe tomorrow’s line would be shorter.

Demo or no demo, it’s still worth mentioning that the game, even in pictures is just a sight to behold. CAPCOM gave us access to screenshots of the game, and my goodness, what a fresh  coat of paint the game has over the 1998 Playstation and Nintendo 64 classic.

Check them out and drool.
