Zimi has technology and R&D capabilities in power supply as well as several IoT areas, which can enhance Xiaomi's technological competitiveness in the smart field and standardize product power supplies to save costs, said Xiaomi's announcement on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
Zimi also has excellent industry resources and operational experience, which can simultaneously synergize and enhance the competitiveness of the Company's future eco-chain products, Xiaomi said.
