Xiaomi celebrated its 5th anniversary with a bang by announcing that the company’s smartphone sales have exceeded 100 million units. The announcement was made by the company’s CEO, Lei Jun, on the Xiaomi official Chinese blog who also said that the next five years will be very crucial to Xiaomi and that the competition in the next five years will be fierce due to the growth of local and foreign competitors as well as the entry of new players in the industry.

The company has also said that their sales numbers would actually be higher if not for capacity or availability issues.
