Xiaomi: Global plans for Chinese smartphone maker

Chinese firm Xiaomi, which makes smartphones and other consumer electronics, has seen robust growth in recent years.

It has become a dominant player in the Chinese smartphone market.

The company, which recently hired Hugo Barra - one of Google's top executives, has now set its sights on global growth.

But Lei Jun, the chief executive of the firm, told the BBC's Martin Patience that it will be another year or two until Xiaomi phones are ready to be sold in the West.
