Redmi company owner: New Launch redmi 13C
Lei Jun, born on December 16, 1969, is a Chinese business magnate and humanitarian who has attained billionaire status. He is widely recognized for founding Xiaomi, a prominent company in the consumer electronics industry.
As of October 2022, Lei Jun’s wealth is approximated to be approximately $8.1 billion according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, positioning him as the 203rd richest person in the world. Alternatively, Forbes estimates his net worth to be $7.5 billion, placing him at the 265th spot on the global wealth ranking.
Redmi, a budget-friendly smartphone line, was first launched in July 2013 as a subsidiary of the Chinese electronics giant Xiaomi. In 2019, it was rebranded as a separate sub-brand of Xiaomi, with a focus on producing entry-level and mid-range devices.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi continued to manufacture high-end phones under its own brand, formerly known as Mi. Redmi smartphones run on the Android operating system, with Xiaomi’s MIUI user interface layered on top.
The lineup includes the entry-level Redmi, the mid-range Redmi Note, and the high-end Redmi K models. Despite belonging to the upper-range Xiaomi Mi lineup, the unrelated Mi A Android One series competes in the same market segment as Redmi devices.
One notable distinction of Redmi smartphones is their use of cost-effective components, enabling lower prices without compromising on specifications.
In the second quarter of the 2014 fiscal year, Xiaomi held a 14% market share in the Chinese smartphone market, with Redmi sales contributing to this achievement, as reported by The Wall Street Journal in August 2014.
