Significant Investment and Production Capacity

Xiaomi has invested 2.4 billion yuan into this new production process. The Changping factory spans 81,000 square meters and has received certification as a "national smart manufacturing benchmark enterprise," with an annual capacity of 10 million flagship smartphones. This facility will produce the upcoming foldable phones, the Xiaomi MIX Fold 4 and Xiaomi MIX Flip.
