Xiaomi sold 18.7 million handsets in 2013, almost double what they shipped in 2012

If you thought earnings from the likes of Samsung were impressive, we’d like to point you to Xiaomi. The Chinese carrier sold 18.7 million smartphones in 2013, a 160% increase form 2012. December alone saw the company selling 3.2 million handsets, helping to annihilate their aim of 15 million.
