In Xiaomi's march to the top of the smartphone world, the Chinese company has found it can't keep pace with its own bold plans.
Instead of expanding into 10 new markets this year, Xiaomi will enter just five. That means consumers in Brazil, Russia, Thailand, Mexico and Turkey will have to wait a bit longer. The company has decided to focus on existing markets such as India and Indonesia, which will slow the no. 3 smartphone maker's pursuit of Samsung Electronics and Apple.
