Our total revenue and adjusted net profit both maintained solid growth despite the shortage of key components globally.
We continued to execute our core "Smartphone × AIoT" strategy. In the third quarter of 2021, despite the global shortage of key components, our global smartphone shipments still reached 43.9 million. According to Canalys, in the third quarter of 2021, our global smartphone shipments ranked No. 3 with a market share of 13.5%.

We continued to make advancements in the premium smartphone market, while further broadening our user base.

Notably, for many of our new smartphones launched this year, over half of the users are new Xiaomi users. On the channel front, we further built up our offline retail network, highlighted by over 10,000 offline retail stores in mainland China currently. Our highly digitalized omni-channel retail strategy enables us to generate high turnover and maximize efficiency, while broadening our customer reach and providing a richer user experience.
We remain committed to investing in research and development, which boosts our products' core competitiveness. In the first three quarters of 2021, our cumulative research and development expenditures reached RMB9.3 billion, representing an increase of 51.4% year- over-year. In September 2021, we introduced Xiaomi Smart Glasses, boasting a visualized information display and interactive features.

According to Canalys, our global smartphone shipments ranked No. 3 in the third quarter of 2021, with a market share of 13.5%.
As we continued to explore technology and product innovation, we gained a deeper understanding of user demand, and continued to improve our competitive position in the premium market.
