Reports claim the move will have a significant impact on Xiaomi's international product development team.
Sung was previously responsible for designing Spotify's look and feel, including the company's initiative to provide its music streaming service free across all platforms. He played a key role in expanding the company's market reach overseas.
Sung also has extensive experience working with top tech companies such as YouTube, Google and Microsoft.
Reports claim Sung will begin working with Xiaomi in Beijing by the second week of November.
Xiaomi is known for hiring former Google employees in the past. In 2013, the Chinese firm hired Google's former Vice President of its Android Division, Hugo Barra, as its International Vice President.
