100,000 Xiaomi Mi3 phones sold out in 1 minute 26 seconds

Xiaomi have just announced on their official Weibo page that they have sold all 100,000 Xiaomi Mi3 phones in 1 minute 26 seconds!

We all knew that the first batch of Xiaomi Mi3 phones would sell out quickly, but even so 1 minute  26 seconds is quite amazing! The Beijing based company are also reporting that all 3000 Xiaomi TV’s sold out in 1 minute 58 seconds.

Gizchina News of the week

Although 100,000 Mi3 phones have been sold these versions will only work in China with China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA mobile phone network and many will have gone to scalpers who hope to sell the phones on for profit.

Xiaomi still haven’t announced what they plan to do about their international intentions, but those of you outside of China wanting an Mi3 which will work on 3G will have to wait until the company starts producing Mi3 phones with Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processors.

    Some fake images etc, is there any possibility that they could have some in stock?? You mentioned that Xiaomi didn’t even started to produce them.

      The majority of photos in that link are old renders that a fan made. Quite lazy of them as their are plenty of real Mi3 photos available.
