Xiaomi received an overwhelming response to the Mi Note 2 sale earlier this week. The company has now repeated the feat with the Mi Mix's maiden flash sale as well.
The company on its official Weibo site revealed that it sold all the 10,000 units of Mi Max, including standard (4GB RAM+64GB storage) and special edition (6GB RAM+256GB) models, in a record 10 seconds, making it the fastest-selling device in Xiaomi's history.
What's so special about Xiaomi Mi Mix?
Xiaomi Mix sports a 6.4-inch screen with advanced black display technology, which offers edgeless viewing experience with 91.3 percent screen-to-body ratio. No other handset boasts this feature as yet.
Another highlight of the Mi Mix is its body, which is made of ceramic, including the frame and the side buttons. Seamless connectors fuse Mi Mix's body without any external adhesives, the company claims.
Other notable features include ultrasonic proximity sensor, Cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic technology, Snapdragon 821 quad-core processor backed by 4GB RAM, 128GB storage, 4,400mAh battery with quick charge 3.0 technology, HD audio quality (192kHz / 24-bit resolution) and 16MP primary camera with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus).
When is Xiaomi Mi Mix next flash sale?
The next round of the Mi Mix flash sale will be held on November 8.
It has to be noted that Xiaomi will not increase the inventory capacity for the Mi Mix flash sale and that after next week's sale, it will be held only once a month. The company on the launch day said that it will manufacture only 10,000 units per month.
Further, Mi Mix will not be selling in global markets, including India, in near future.
Xiaomi's global head Hugo Barra confirmed to International Business Times, India, that the Mi Mix and also the Mi Note 2 will be not released in India. The company has a different marketing strategy for India, and only launches one flagship phone a year. But things may change 2017 onwards.
However, private e-commerce site Gearbest is taking orders with international shipping option.
