In a recent move, Beijing headquartered Chinese electronics giant Xiaomi and Finnish multinational manufacturer giant Nokia newly signed an agreement for a strategic business partnership and patent licensing where Xiaomi will be authorized to get hold of key patent assets from Nokia.

The multi-year copyright accord includes a cross license for each of the company's cellular standard necessary patents. However, the financials condition of the deal is not yet revealed.

"As a company seeking to deliver more exciting technological innovations to the world, we are excited at the opportunity to work more closely with Nokia in future," said Lei Jun, Chairman and CEO of Xiaomi, in a statement.

Though not charging well internationally including in China, Xiaomi is observing fast expansion in the Indian market and clocked over $1 billion in revenue in 2016.
