Chinese smartphone vendor Xiaomi continues to see incredible sales growth.
During the first half of the year, Xiaomi sold 26.1 million smartphones, according to an announcement from the company.
Xiaomi sold 15.1 million of those handsets in the second quarter of 2014, on top of 11 million devices in the first quarter. That amounts to growth of 278% year-over-year for the second quarter, and 37% sequential growth.
