Xiaomi might ship up to 15 million Mi Notes this year

Xiaomi might ship up to 15 million Mi Notes this year
Last year, Xiaomi sold a bit over 61 million smartphones (mostly low-cost models), and it certainly has bigger plans for 2015. An important role in this will be played by the brand new Mi Note and Mi Note Pro, which were announced last week.

Of course, since both the Mi Note and Mi Note Pro are high-end devices, they won't be as cheap as other Xiaomi handsets. Even so, according to Focus Taiwan (which quotes consulting firm KGI Investment Advisory), Xiaomi could ship 13 to 15 million Mi Notes this year - which would be impressive, considering the fact that, at the moment, Xiaomi is far from being a global company. It's not clear if both Mi Note models are included in this estimation.

As you may know, the Mi Note is a pretty normal high-end handset, offering features like a 5.7-inch 1080p display, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and up to 64 GB of internal memory. The Mi Pro, on the other hand, is truly a beast, coming with a 5.7-inch Quad HD display, a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal memory by default.

While the Mi Note will be available starting this month (in China), the Mi Note Pro is expected to go on sale in March. The regular Mi Note should have prices starting at less than $400, while the Pro variant will cost about $530.

What do you think, can Xiaomi ship 15 million Mi Notes this year?

They can ship more than that. Mi Note Pro is truly a beast.

Fa99ots like you are why there should be a mandatory waiting period or limited posting abilities. You and that customs guy registered barely a week ago and go on to post nonsensical crap.

They can and they will, and if they start to sell in another country outside asia like Brazil or Mexico (Where I live), they will sell a hell of a lot more

Correct, they should spread their network globally.

They'll have to pay import taxes, licensing fees, marketing fees and even pay royalties on patents they blatantly rip off from other firms. Outside of the no bars jungle that China has fostered for its homegrown companies, prices will rise exponentially and they WILL face litigation from the likes of Apple, Samsung, and other OEM/suppliers in various territories, such as Europe and North America, as well as the rest of the Americas if they thought they could expand there. Face it, companies like this one will never thrive outside of Asia.

But if they do pay royalties and follow the same flash sale technique then they can easily sell well with the lowest possible prices in overall countries. However their dual SIM Redmi Note is banned in India due to Ericson patents, they are only selling Redmi 1s and Redmi Note 4G version.

I really hope that XIAOMI goes internationally (EUROPE) very soon with good after sales service. We really got fed up with the rest of the phones plus paying so much more for getting less. When Xiaomi makes this big step, you will see that major players will a BIG problem
