Xiaomi Mi MIX sets company record by selling out its first flash sale in just 10 seconds

This morning, it took just 10 seconds for the Xiaomi Mi MIX to completely sell out during the phone's first flash sale. This way, it has become Xiaomi's fastest selling phone.... however, the exact number of phones sold hasn't been disclosed. In a scenario where Xiaomi had a relatively small batch of units to sell, we can imagine it could have easily reached such a 'record' for sell-out speed, without actually selling a meaningful number of phones. The previous record for sell-out speed was set just the other day when all versions of the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 were snatched up in 50 seconds. Again, the exact number of devices sold is unknown.

The versions of the Mi MIX snatched up included the Standard Edition with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. This unit was sold for the equivalent of $520 USD. The Exclusive Edition, with 6GB of RAM and 256GB of native storage, was also sold out. The latter was priced at the equivalent of $590 USD.

If you missed out the first time, the Mi MIX will have its second flash sale on November 8th. We don't expect Xiaomi to hold a flash sale every few days. After all, the company is reportedly producing only 10,000 units of the phone each month.

How is this news? This isn't surprising. If US had 1.37 billion residents this would happen with IPhones too. iPhones still sell out in minutes upon launch so imagine how fast they'd sell if the US had China's population, which is over 4x its own?

You can't compare the two. While China has 1.37 billion residents, how many of them are actually rich enough to buy even the cheapest smartphones? Let alone a more expensive smartphone

Sadly.... I find this phone, far more innovative vs the iPhone 7. Also... They sell the iPhone in China, if it sold out in 10 seconds there. It would have been on the front page of this site.... It would probably still be on the front page.... Im happy to hear it's selling. So I appreciate the article.

probably only 10k units or less since that's as much as they can make in 1 month (rumor said) and 3rd party retailers like gearbest probably buy several hundred/ thousand units (and sell it again for 800 EUR :-/)

In order to get a high demand flash sale xiaomi phone you need to be 100% committed. I didn't win my first xiaomi flash sales but only successfully on the second round. 1) A valid paypal account 2) A XiaoMi account that had bought something successfully before. 2) Open multi browser; Chrome, Firefox; Opera two of each. 3) Login to xiaomi website 1 hts before sales. 4) Start refreshing the browsers 3 seconds before time. 5) Proceed to buy when one of your browser tab hit jack pot. 6) Complete the transaction within 20 sec. That's commitment.
