Sold 200,000 units in five minutes.


Some time ago, technology device manufacturer Xiaomi introduced the Mi Mix 4 smartphone and Mi Pad 5 for the Chinese market. The two products were first sold on August 16, 2021, and immediately received a positive response from consumers.

Xiaomi then announced that they managed to sell both products with a value of up to 300 million Yuan within one minute. The company also revealed that 200,000 units of the Mi Pad 5 were sold within five minutes.

Despite getting surprising results on the first day of sales, many consumers reported problems regarding Mi Pad 5 accessories such as a keyboard and stylus, which were difficult to obtain. Xiaomi is trying to solve this problem as soon as possible.

The Mi Mix 4 smartphone model was already sold out during the pre-sale in the first batch. Lu Weibing, President of Xiaomi China, revealed that the company's stock for the latest Mi Mix model was minimal at the time of the first sale. They are currently adding stock.

The problem of global chip scarcity is the reason behind the limited Mi Mix 4 smartphone units. Besides that, ceramic materials are also being scarce.
