What makes the Xiaomi business model appealing to advertisers?

Services and products that rely on ads to support their business is a long-established business model. However, it is a rare strategy for a consumer electronics company, and Xiaomi is a unique innovator in this field. In fact, Xiaomi brand itself not as a hardware company, but rather an internet service company. 

Xiaomi distinguishes itself from the competition by including ads and service integrations inside add-ons and even the main UI. This massive advertising business allows Xiaomi to subsidize and offset the hardware cost, and thus sell it at surprisingly low prices. Xiaomi has set a 5% profit margins for all hardware sales

Smartphones are, essentially, carriers of the company’s services, a channel to reach millions of users with advertising. Instead of deriving the bulk of its profits from one-time hardware sell, the Xiaomi model allows a steady revenue stream from advertising on their devices for years.
