Xiaomi knows what it takes to be a winner in Chinese smartphone market. Their latest phone which is called Hongmi was released recently Qzone, a Chinese social networking site and within just 90 seconds the entire first batch was sold out, ie. 100,000 units. This is where Apple struggles to sell their iPhones. According to a report from Canalys Xiaomi officially overtook Apple in the number of shipped devices.
The company announced the milestone on its official Sina Weibo account with another news along with it. That will just blow your mind away. The phone now has a 7.45 million reservations at the time of posting that. Their secret formula is not that much of secret if you ask me. This new phone called Hongmi costs just $130 which is a bit cheap price for a decent smartphone. Competitively-priced devices are their trademark and it has been doing them very good considering Xiaomi’s first ever device was released on 2011.
Xiaomi is going to raise their sales target for this year to 20 million smartphones from last years 15 million target. Considering the number of pre-orders it has got, I guess Xiaomi is going to hit the target. Let us know your thought by commenting below.
