Today was the first day of sales of the new Xiaomi Mi 9 in China. As anticipated, the great stock promised by the manufacturer was far from sufficient. The new flagship sold out in just 53 seconds! Yes, what may be the most popular smartphone ever by Xiaomi didn't last even 1 minute in stores.
After we revealed yesterday that only over 1 million pre-bookings were made at the JD.com store, it is important to reveal that no store in China has been able to guarantee the exclusivity of the new high-end. That's why it was available from over 10 different retailers. Making this feat even more amazing.
The next one flash sale of the Xiaomi Mi 9 will only take place on March 5th. Xiaomi's president – Lin Bin – has already posted an official comment where he apologized to fans of the brand. Despite promising that the Mi 9 would not sell out quickly, they could not foresee such a high demand. So he made sure they are doing everything possible to increase production levels, remembering that the Xiaomi Mi 9 SE and Explorer Edition will arrive on March 1st.
Xiaomi Mi 9's success even surprised the manufacturer itself
It is worth noting that the Xiaomi Mi 9 was unveiled (in China) the same day that Samsung unveiled all the new high end, along with the first folding smartphone.
Many believed that this had been too risky a strategy for the Chinese manufacturer. However, the surreal price-quality ratio of the Xiaomi Mi 9 has proved unbeatable, even when placed side by side with Samsung's new flagship.
I remember that for a fraction of the price, the Mi 9 offers a brilliant design with a holographic 'painting'. Also, their specifications could not be better. Enough with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory.
In the photographic segment, it has been considered one of the best smartphones for photography. On the rear panel, it has a triple camera, consisting of a 48 megapixel main sensor. This sensor is then supported by one 12MP and one 16MP sensor.
Let's not forget that it comes with a 6.39 "AMOLED screen, allowing the integration of the desired fingerprint reader. Finally, the Xiaomi Mi 9 has a 3300mAh battery that supports 20W wireless charging.
