Xiaomi’s Smart Factory in Changping, Beijing Is Completed and Operational

On February 18th, Lei Jun announced that Xiaomi‘s Changping Smart Factory in Beijing has officially completed construction and started production.

According to the introduction, both the Xiaomi 14 Gulf Blue and the Xiaomi 14 Ultra process innovation verification come from this factory.

The factory has a self-developed rate of 96.8% for component packaging, a self-developed rate of 100% for factory software, focusing on flagship smartphone production with an annual capacity exceeding tens of millions of units.

The output value is about 60 billion yuan.

According to the official website of Changping District People’s Government in Beijing, leaders of Xiaomi Group said during a discussion that the first production line of Xiaomi‘s smart factory has been installed and tested. It is planned that all production lines will be put into operation by the end of 2024, with an estimated annual production capacity of 10 million smart phones after full production.
