Lei Jun, founder1 and CEO of Xiaomi, says the netpany will unveil a new heavyweight flagship product next month. Xiaomi became the world's third-largest vendor2 behind Samsung and Apple, shipping3 18 million smartphones in the third quarter. That's an increase of 18 percent from the previous quarter. It expects to sell 65 million phones for the whole year.
