Chinese smartphone brands – Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo – all major players in India have no collaborated to create a file transfer service between their brands. This new system would be based on the peer-to-peer framework.
Details regarding this new file transfer system have been shared by MIUI via Weibo (translated) and are claimed to let users indulge in one-click transfer of files; without having to install third-party applications. Also, all major file formats are said to be supported through this new network.
The transfer rate is also claimed to be 20MB/second. This would be transferred via Bluetooth connectivity.
The above Weibo post, by Xiaomi also asks other manufacturers to join the new alliance for file transfer. This new file transfer technology may also come bundled with newer- futuristic smartphones of Oppo, Xiaomi, and Vivo; but whether or not this would be present by default is still yet to be confirmed by the companies.
In related news, Xiaomi has established nearly 2000 Mi Stores that are offline. USP of these stores is their employment generation potential – which is said to be 4000 jobs. Xiaomi’s 2000th Mi Store was recently inaugurated in Karnataka’s Tumkur city.
“With the beginning of 2017, we started our offline journey in India. It has led to a lot of learnings and today we have been able to establish our presence in the retail industry. Mi stores was a big leap in the retail industry where we took premium shopping experience to rural markets. We have approached 2,000 Mi stores in record time across 600+ cities and extremely proud to be bringing the best specs, with highest quality at an honest price to millions of our Mi Fans,” stated Xiaomi India head Manu Jain.
