Xiaomi M2 sales to start 30th October only 50,000 up for grabs!

Imagine you have just announced one of the most powerful smartphones on the planet with an excellent camera, great features, wonderful design and super low price! What do you do next make enough of them for all your fans to get one or manufacturer a measly 50,000 and watch customers go home empty-handed?

If you chose the second option then well done you have the makings of a Xiaomi employ as the Beijing based software come hardware company have announced only 50,000 Xiaomi M2 phones will go on sale (presale) on October 30th!

It seems Xiaomi haven’t learnt from enough from the popularity of the original M1 and newer M1s (or perhaps they have) and have decided that their hugely popular quad-core super phone will only be available in extremely limited supply!

    Hi Andi!

    I’m trying though not so that convinced… what are the chances of getting one, in your opinion?

    My Galaxy SCL i9003 is still alive but with that annoying tendency to turn itself off when it pleases, argh!

    Despite Xiaomi’s policy (S M A L L batches), all around I see people showing interest on the brand new releases (including me).

    So they did an Apple-size presentation, awesome phone and then? Only 50,000 models!!!!!

    I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get my hands on this one but if I have a chance (what do you think), would you recommend more The Xiaomi M2, The GodMade Oppo Find5, The BBK VIVO X3, or the dirt cheap Newman N2? Does this last one have a 1080p and does 1080p screen mean 440ppi?

    It’s hard to pick between M2 and the LG Nexus 4 both are very similar and priced close to 399$! I also heard one of the testers of this phone said there were a few dead pixels on M2! Just be careful buying this device as testers also said there were a few bugs as well.

    Xiaomi are masters at creating artificial demand, but they play a dangerous game…how long can they toy with their customers before a backlash?

    I waited for this phone for a month and now they pull this. Probably 2 million orders on backlog, won’t see this phone until the new year. What a stupid way of doing business! At least ship them as you make them, not make a batch and overload your shipping department so that it takes even longer to get them. I’m looking for a new phone, this on will be out dated by the time I get it anyway.

    Anyone here who can tell me, why there are different names mentioned in the web for this phone? I found: XiaoMi X2 II, XiaoMi 2, Mi phone X2
    I don’t want to buy it somewhere and after buying I find out it’s fake.
    Would be great if someone knows and tell me
