Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, seems to be struggling with the availability of its recent smartphones. The first official sale of the Xiaomi Mi 9 lasted for only 53 seconds and Xiaomi explained that this smartphone considers both online and offline sales that’s why the online sale sold out swiftly. Yesterday, Xiaomi’s CEO, Lei Jun, asked Lin Bin (Xiaomi’s President) to go and personally supervise the production capacity of Xiaomi Mi 9. Today, the first official sale of the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE and Mi 9 Transparent Version also didn’t last long.
