On demand smartphone maker Xiaomi has appointed a new product manager for its India operations. The company, which already has ex-Google VP Hugo Barra, has now appointed another executive from the search giant, Jai Mani, to head its product division in India.

The information was announced by Xiaomi Global VP Hugo Barra through Google+ and Facebook posts. “Android fans: you'll remember Jai from his memorable on-stage demo performances at Google I/O and Nexus launches," wrote Barra on his social network pages. Mani has reportedly moved from San Francisco to Bangalore to take over his new job. He had earlier been a Google Play Strategy and Analytics associate.

Xiaomi has been making the news in the last three months, since launching its first smartphone in the country. The company had made waves with its flagship Xiaomi Mi3 smartphone, which has now been discontinued. The company is currently selling its Redmi 1S device, while preparing for the Redmi Note smartphone. The company will also be launching its next flagship smartphone, Xiaomi Mi4, by the end of the year or early next year.
