This handset sold 1,50,000 units in less than 13 minutes

When we think of phones breaking records, there is mostly just one company that comes to mind i.e. Apple. But it seems new players on the scene might even have Apple a run for its money.


Ahoy! The Xiaomi Mi One MiUi sold 1,50,000 handsets in 12 minutes and 41 seconds. As you might have guessed Xiaomi is not even that big of a brand. In fact, it is one of the companies successfully selling phones in China.

The MiUi was announced last years and sells in batches. This is the batch 7 we are talking about here. You must be eager to know the specs, aren’t you?

What’s next? Yes, the price. Well, ¥1999, or Rs. 15,600 is quite a price tag. Sadly, they do not ship the phone in India.
