Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro sales hit the equivalent of US$28.5 million in less than a minute
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro might not be as affordable as the Mi 9 or Mi 8, but this new flagship promises to be another hit for the popular Chinese smartphone maker. According to an image recently posted on Weibo, the first flash sale of Xiaomi's Qualcomm Snapdragon 865-driven flagship ended in just 55 seconds with a good result for the company — over 200 million Yuan, which currently converts to more than 28,5 million USD.
Considering the starting price of roughly US$716 (8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage), it is most likely that Xiaomi has managed to sell at least 35,000 units in China already, since the price can go as high as US$859 for the 12/512 GB top-of-the-line variant. The third memory/storage configuration available for the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro has a price tag of roughly US$787 and includes 12 GB of memory and 256 GB of internal storage space.
The more affordable — and far less capable, obviously — non-Pro Xiaomi Mi 10 went on sale on February 14 and the aforementioned flash sale of the Mi 10 Pro took place earlier today. For now, we have no information regarding the international availability of these handsets or the accurate prices to expect — which will surely depend on carrier/retailer and market, but we will keep you posted.
