Xiaomi might not be a household name in the United States, but it's a huge player in China, the world's largest mobile market with more than 1 billion customers across the country. Xiaomi has found a way to break into a hotly contested market as a small company fighting against much larger firms, like Samsung, Lenovo and Apple. Xiaomi has achieved this by providing high-end devices at budget prices, earning it, at last count, more than 10 percent of the Chinese smartphone market. On July 22, however, Xiaomi made its biggest splash yet with the announcement of its flagship Mi 4 smartphone. The device comes with several high-end components, has a great design that some say resembles the iPhone 5S and is arguably one of the best smartphones to hit store shelves this year. Now, the question is how Apple will respond to this latest market challenge. While the iPhone maker might be selling more smartphones worldwide, in China, Xiaomi is a major competitor and a real concern if Apple wants to be a strong player in the world's biggest potential smartphone market. This slide show highlights the features that make the Xiaomi Mi 4 a serious challenger to the iPhone in the Asian smartphone market.
