More than 16 million Mi5

Mi 5, Xiaomi, Devices

16 million Mi 5’s

That’s right, 16 million Mi 5’s have been preordered until now. This is an amazing amount of devices when you think  the Xiaomi Mi5 has just been showed at the Barcelona Mobile World Congress last week. Considering the features at the top of the range (including the premium materials used) and the fact that is sold at a very competitive price compared to other devices with the same hardware equipment, the Xiaomi Mi 5 stands up as a very attractive and affordable smartphone.


That’s quite impressive, and is even said to be a new record as the milestone was achieved in less than a week after the $300 handset was unveiled. As for the sale, it begins 10AM China time, and will see the company offering only the white color variants of the 3GB/32GB and 3GB/64GB models. There’s currently no word on when other versions, including the higher-end ceramic back variant will be available for purchase. Given the tremendous response for the sale, we can expect the first batch to go out of stock within minutes. So, if you are in China, planning to get hold of the Mi 5 early, you better hurry up on the purchase.
