President of Xiaomi, Lin Bin announced on his Facebook page “2014 mi fan festival just ended. We have sold a total of 1.3 million phones in 12 hours, with total revenue of over RMB ¥1.5 billion. Over 130k phones were sold in Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore combined. Big thanks to all mi fans over the world. Love you all. See you next year!”
Here is an image from the Singapore Facebook page showing the statistics of sell.
Celebrating the moment, Global director Amanda Chen said “For other companies, I think when it comes to anniversaries it’s usually about the company itself. For Xiaomi, it’s about our Mi fans. We want to please them with new products, more offerings so we held launches… but this year we hear our customers, they want more products so we have been trying to get more inventories in. We want to satisfy our fans.”
We wish that the company keeps on bringing its cool and excellent gadgets ahead in future.
