What is the philosophy of the new Xiaomi submachine?
Jai Mani is the head of the Poco brand, he wrote for fans of the letter in which he took what their plans are. The company's philosophy is clear, Poco is to offer technology at the highest level. Smartphones have to have top-class components, but only those really useful. India is a poor market, so Poco will not increase the cost of products by adding unnecessary, beautiful functions to the devices.
From quarter to quarter, the share of Apple and Samsung on the Indian market is falling, they are being replaced by OnePlus. In the last quarter of Q2 2018, OnePlus achieved first place in the premium smartphones category. The new Poco brand wants to adopt the same tactics, a cheap device with components from the top shelf.
Xiaomi is the leader in the sale of smartphones in India, but thanks to cheaper models. Top smartphones with the logo of Mi do not go to the hearts of Indian citizens. Xiaomi tried to enter the market with the flagship Mi 5, but sales were at a low level. The most powerful smartphones with the Mi logo currently offered officially in India are Mi Mix 2 and Mi A2. We'll see how it will be with POCO.
