In these days in China the news of a revolution at the top of Xiaomi had circulated: the company would have been ready to liquidate the co-founder and vice president Lin Bin. There was a fund of truth, but things went differently: Lin Bin remains in Xiaomi, he simply will no longer be the president of the mobile division, and will now occupy the role of vice president of the strategic committee.
To replace him in command in his previous assignment will be Adam Zeng Xuezhong, former CEO and vice president of ZTE, as well as president of the join venture Huixin Communication, which includes 29 leading 5G companies. Not really a random sector, considering that it is a crucial technology for the development of the industry in the coming years.
Xiaomi is a young company, founded only 10 years ago, and over the course of its short history it has repeatedly re-kneaded its executive cadres. Some prominent figures, however, have always remained to represent the company publicly. The most famous is that of the other co-founder, Lei Jun, who over the years has highlighted the attention of the international press for a certain tendency to imitate Steve Jobs: but among these there is certainly also Lin Bin.
We don't know if this move is to be read as a "step back", nor how voluntary it is. Lin Bin in recent years has contributed with his work to consolidate the company's position in the smartphone market, and to associate the name of Xiaomi with futuristic and innovative proposals: the name of Mi Mix Alpha, the smartphone with the screen also behind it, does it tell you something?
