The Chinese smartphone manufacturer has entered into an agreement with contract manufacturer Foxconn, which runs a manufacturing facility outside of Sao Paulo for making Future Smartphone. Xiaomi, which is the fifth-highest selling smartphone brand in the world, aims to break into the Brazilian market with its novel business model.

“We offer high-quality products at incredibly aggressive prices, so we’re starting with larger developing markets where people are very price-sensitive,” said Xiaomi’s global vice-president, Hugo Barra.

He also announced that the company’s entry-level Redmi 2 smartphone will be released in Brazil next week, carrying a $160 price tag. Barra also revealed that Brazil is “stage one of our Latin America launch,” adding that Mexico and Colombia are next on the company’s radar.
