In an interview last year, Jain said in an interview that millet and India wanted to copy the company’s model in China and become a Internet Co through a series of services. However, he said at that time, the short-term goal of millet is still taking the lead in the mobile phone market.
He pointed out that Millet’s Internet Co mode took seven years to take shape in China, and it will take several years for India to blossom and blossom.
“We are far more than a smartphone brand. Our hardware business is very important because it has gained a large number of users for our MIUI, millet finance, millet entertainment and other Internet services. We plan to launch these services in India and carefully assess the time to launch these services. Our ultimate goal is to build the Internet business and then liquidate it, so that we can make long-term profits from the MIUI operating system. Jain said. (Comprehensive / Hongyi)
