In an onstage conversation with Re/code’s Walt Mossberg last month, Xiaomi President Bin Lin discussed the fast-growing Chinese phone manufacturer’s new interest-paying mobile wallet program, the company’s strategy for producing high-end phones at low prices and much more.

The March 17 interview took place at the Connector event, hosted by Tencent in the Grand Millennium Beijing.
