Company chairman Richard Lee revealed the information during an interview with Taipei Times, where he revealed that Xiaomi was likely to adopt the same marketing strategy as previously demonstrated with the smartphone range. Inventec assembles all current Xiaomi devices, so the partnership seems like a natural progression.
