Xiaomi Corp.’s profit beat expectations as the world’s third-largest smartphone maker weathered a difficult quarter to close the year.

Smartphone shipments were down dramatically in the three months ended December, but the Beijing-based company still managed to record net income of 1.5 billion yuan ($218 million), better than the average analyst estimate of 800 million yuan. Revenue in the quarter was 66 billion yuan, the company said in a filing Friday. Analysts had predicted 65 billion yuan.
