Xiaomi recently launched its flagship smartphones Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro via a live stream event in Beijing, China. Last week, the Mi 10 went on sale for the first time in the country and it received the same treatment as Xiaomi's budget devices get in India-- it got sold out within a minute.
The company did not disclose how many units of the device were sold during that time period. However, Xiaomi did confirm that the first sale of Mi 10 generated a revenue of more than Yuan 200 million, which amounts to Rs 204 crores in Indian currency on conversion. As per a report by GizmoChina, Xiaomi claims that the phone was sold out on every store-- including Tmall, JD.com, and Xiaomi Mall.
