Chinese Xiaomi deny any deals with Spanish firm Zetta

MADRID: Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has denied doing any deals with the troubled Spanish firm Zetta Smartphones, which is currently under attack in Spain for allegedly passing off Xiaomi phones as original products and selling them on at inflated prices.

Xiaomi told Spanish national newspaper El País that until the scandal broke out on 16 October, it had had no knowledge whatsoever of Zetta, and certainly had no business arrangement with the firm to sell on either its handsets or its custom Android operating system, MIUI.

Xiaomi’s vice president of international operations Hugo Barra (pictured above right) said that the Chinese phonemaker currently has no marketing agreement of any kind in Western Europe, and is instead focusing on countries like India and Brazil, where there is a large population of people who are still using feature phones because they are far more affordable than smartphones.
