There are a bunch of people say Xiaomi is not selling cell phone but a entire Mi-ecosystem since they don't make profit by making hardware. Could anyone further illustrate it?

They sell software on the hardware that they sell at a loss. Is it that complicated? Amazon kindle, Xbox are similar business models that forgo profitable COGS for future cashflow.
