Xiaomi sells 2.11 million phones on festival day
Yesterday morning, we told you that Xiaomi had sold 1.6 million handsets after 6 hours of its festival day sale. This has turned into an annual event that is now timed to coincide with the company's birthday every year. On April 6th, Xiaomi turned all of five years old. This five-year old child is now one of the top smartphone manufacturers globally. It also has the number one spot in China, which is a very competitive country when it comes to handsets. Xiaomi has beaten back much more seasoned companies in China such as Lenovo, ZTE and Huawei.

So how did Xiaomi do during this year's festival day? The young upstart sold a total of 2.11 million phones helping it bring in revenue of $335 million USD. As we noted yesterday, last year's festival day sales amounted to 1.3 million phones. Amazingly, the first order from this year's festival day was shipped out only 1 hour and 27 minutes after the sale started. Overall, 500,000 orders were shipped during the event's 12 hours.

Xiaomi tallied festival day sales in seven different countries this year with phone buyers in Malaysia, India and Indonesia being added this year. If you missed taking part in Xiaomi's festival day, don't worry. You can be sure that Xiaomi will repeat it again next year.
