The “MI” in our logo stands for “Mobile Internet”. It also has other meanings, including “Mission Impossible”, because Xiaomi faced many challenges that
had seemed impossible to defy in our early days.

technology doesn’t need to cost a fortune. We create remarkable hardware, software, and internet
