It sold out! And in less than 1 minute! What are we talking about? The Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 that’s what!
So, today was the big day, the first day that Beijing based phone maker Xiaomi released sales of the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2! With such hype around this latest flagship we all knew that it would be a sell-out, but to sell out in less than 1 minute is pretty special!\
In just 58 seconds, Xiaomi sold 50,000 units according to official data and a number that Apple is likely to be watching with some concern as it released the iPhone X in China over the next couple of months.
What we’ll see over the next few days is those 50,000 units make their way onto the grey market where many of the Xioami Mi Mix 2 phones will ultimately be offered online to international customers eager to get their hands on the latest smartphone.
