Forbes Asia says Xiaomi's CEO is Businessman of the Year 2014
Xiaomi has been slowly growing in success for the past four years, with 2014 being an exceptionally strong one for the China-based smartphone manufacturer. With the immensely successfulMi 3 and Mi 4 flagships, the company has become the player to beat for a piece of pie on the Asian markets and has reached the spot of third largest smartphone vendor in the world. For these accomplishments, Forbes Asia has awarded Xiaomi's CEO – Mr. Lei Jun – with the title of Businessman of the Year for 2014.

Mr. Lei isn't done yet, though. He aspires to grow his company to global domination, and while that may or may not be an optimistic goal, it is pretty clear that The Mi has a real shot at making ripples across international markets – with a steady cashflow from its hefty market share in Asia, a continued production of powerful, yet affordable flagships, and its (currently forming) device ecosystem – it definitely has a chance at permeating customers' hearts and minds at a global scale.

Check out the company's latest flagship – the Mi 4 – below. Have you had the chance to play with a Xiaomi product yet? If not – are you itching to get one?
