In May this year, Xiaomi unveiled its biggest smartphone yet, the Xiaomi Mi Max. This smartphone has a massive 6.44 inch display and went on sale in China before expanding to other markets. This was and still is the biggest smartphone from the company and we were not sure how well it was going to perform.
The first flash sale saw over 8 million registrations of people interested in buying the Xiaomi Mi Max. This is impressive but does not represent actual sales so we cannot use it to determine if the phone was successful or not. Xiaomi isn’t revealing how many units of the Mi Max have been sold so far but some analysts in China are revealing some stats about the Mi Max.
One well-known analyst is revealing that within the first two months of its launch, Xiaomi has sold over 1.5 million units. This is impressive but slightly less compared to the 8 million registrations it reported a while back. Considering that the Mi Max is available in China only, these are very impressive figures.
Compared to other huge phablets, the analysts are saying that Xiaomi is winning as the average number of units of such a smartphone in 2015 was 300,000 for each model for the whole year. Xiaomi has managed to move 5 times more devices in just two months. This shows you how big and influential Xiaomi is as they keep breaking records in every market they get into.
