OnePlus 3/3T sales improved in China, Xiaomi beware


OnePlus 3T

Well this could mean trouble for Xiaomi I guess. Well known analyst Pan Jiutang, published earlier today in Weibo some numbers regarding the sales of OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T models in China, now that the manufacturer is focusing on the promotion of their upcoming OnePlus 5 flagship model.

According to the analyst, the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T models combined sold over 2.5 million devices in China only, having more sales than Xiaomi Mi5 for example and other relevant devices! Note that the two OnePlus models have been sold with price tags of 2500 yuan ($364), which is much higher that the prices of Xiaomi Mi5 (and other phones) in the Chinese market, costing 1999 yuan ($291) and 1799 yuan ($262) per average.

This means that people don’t really care about the price difference when they want to buy a phone – especially if they are sure it’s going to prove better than others. What is more important to buyers is the availability of a smartphone and in this factor it seems that Xiaomi is losing (again).

    strange, why they sont include newer Mi5S while including 3T?
    as for the consumers, yes, they are irrational: they dont just buy more expensive OnePlus, but also incredibly expensive Apple and Samsung

    Looking forward to OnePlus5, with certainty in mind that this will be better sorted than Mi6, in all aspects. It will be a good buy, right from beginning

    It helps that OnePlus is selling their devices worldwide, where Xiaomi devices have to be bought at retailers offering the device with a much higher price. Looking at these numbers it seem to be a good idea for Xiaomi to look at this option as well. I know I would buy a lot more Xiaomi if the prices would be the actual selling prices and I was assured it would be the real deal and not fakes.
