TAIPEI -- Top Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi aims to ship more than 200 million phones in 2022 as it predicts the global chip and component shortage will "fundamentally" improve in the second half of the year.

"In the first quarter, the chip supply crunch is still challenging, but the situation will significantly improve in the second quarter, and such supply woes will be fundamentally solved and even revert in the second half of 2022," Xiaomi President Wang Xiang told a media briefing on Tuesday evening.
