Though Lei Jun has proven the Mi 9 won’t run out of stock quickly, the Mi 9 is very popular and it’s quite reasonable that this happened. As Xiaomi Mi 9 is in short supply, Xiaomi co-founder and Xiaomi President Lin Bin issued a statement through his Weibo channel: ‘Sorry! We are already working hard to increase the production capacity.’ And also recalled the Mi 9 Explorer Edition and Xiaomi Mi 9 SE will be sold at 10:00 on Friday.
