Xiaomi has the largest share in the Indian market. Simply put, Xiaomi is the number 1 mobile brand in India in the Rs 20,000 range. Xiaomi phones are sold in India under the branding of Mi, Redmi and Poco. There are many good smartphones of Redmi and Poco in the range of Rs 12,000 and the sales of these phones are also very high.
