Xiaomi sells $253 million USD worth of its products halfway through festival day sale


To show you how much Xiaomi has grown in two years, back in 2013 the manufacturer's festival day sale brought in the equivalent of $82 million USD. In 2014, the company rung up $250 million USD for the entire festival day. Today, halfway through the festivities, the company has already amassed more than $253 million USD in sales. The action began at 10am in China and runs for 12 consecutive hours.

At the halfway point, Xiaomi has sold 1.6 million smartphones. Consider that two years ago 110,000 Xiaomi Mi 3, 110,000 Xiaomi Hongmi, and 110,000 Xiaomi Mi 2S were rung up during the entire day. In 2014, Xiaomi sold 1.3 million phones during all 12 hours.

Amazingly, Xiaomi is only 5 years old having celebrated its birthday on Monday. Among the new models prepared especially for its birthday is a Xiaomi Mi Note pink edition, and a version of the Xiaomi Mi Note with 2GB ofd RAM instead of the usual 3GB that is employed by the model. As a result, Xiaomi cut the price of the latter device from $290 to $274. Xiaomi also changed up the CPU and GPU on the Xiaomi Redmi 2 and came up with a cheaper ($97 USD) Redmi 2A which is powered by the 1.5GHz Leadcore LC1860 chipset.

It isn't crazy. Just wait for the new GS6 and GS6 edge to quintuple their sales in a matter of days.

if samsung, lg, sony and HTC don't lower their prices, pretty soon there will be only 2 tiers of smartphone in china: chinese android phones for the budget conscious or iphones for the wealthy
