At the beginning of this year, Xiaomi has set a goal to sell over 70 million units and get back to the top 3. Many doubt whether this is possible, but the devoted Mi fans knew this company is capable of solving any problem. Last month Xiaomi announced about 10 million shipped smartphones. Today Lei Jun came in with another statement telling about another 10 million sold Xiaomi smartphones in October. It turns out Xiaomi has sold over 73 million units in past 10 months. In this sense, the manufacturer shouldn’t face any problem in coming two months, and it should announce about 90 million shipped smartphones in 2017.
The company started the year with the much-popular Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X. It is packed with a large battery providing very long life. Moreover, it was the cheapest Snapdragon 625 smartphone. At the end of the first quarter, the company came in with the Xiaomi Mi 5C. Its selling point was Xiaomi’s own-made Surge S1 chip. Thanks to these smartphones the Chinese Apple could sell over 13 million smartphones in the Q1.
Thereafter, the company launched the best Mi phone ever, the Xiaomi Mi 6. As you know, it took 7 years from this manufacturer to come in with this beauty. It was the first Snapdragon 835-powered smartphone launched in China. One of the cheapest Xiaomi phones in face of the Redmi 4X was announced in May. As you remember, almost all smartphone makers in China had to increase pricing for their products due to the increased purchase cost of components and exchange rate fluctuations. So with the launch of this phone, the company showed how it fights against this negative process. Xiaomi has sold 23 million units in the Q2.
The third quarter was the most successful in the company’s history. But before we learn how many smartphones it has shipped, let’s get acquainted with the phones launched in this time period. First, it launched the Xiaomi Mi Max 2. It’s one of the most selling smartphones of the company. Thanks to a large screen and large capacity battery, the Mi Max 2 will meet most of your requirements. September was hot. We were introduced the Xiaomi Mi A1, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A, Xiaomi Mi MIX 2, and Xiaomi Mi Note 3. Each of these phones is unique in its type. In this sense, the Mi A1 is the first phone from China to participate Google’s Android One Program; the Redmi Note 5A is the first from the fifth-gen Redmi line, plus, it is priced at 699 yuan ($75) only; the Mi MIX 2 is the most desired full-screen phone around the globe with a number of innovations; and finally, the Mi Note 3 is the larger variant of the Mi 6, but it comes with a better camera. Thanks to all these models the company has sold over 27 million units in the Q3.
Note: The Xiaomi Mi A1 is the European version of the Xiaomi Mi 5X launched earlier.
As for the fourth quarter, the company has already revealed the cheapest phone of the year, the Xaomi Redmi 5A. As you know, its predecessor, the Redmi 4A was the most selling smartphone during the Double 11 Festival. So the company has announced the newer model ahead of this festival to try to repeat the former success. But what’s amazing, we have heard the company is going to unleash three other models from the Redmi 5 line in the coming month. Among them, we can find the Xiaomi Redmi 5, Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. They are rumored to be ultra-budget full-screen smartphones.
So it turns out Xiaomi has already launched 10 smartphones in 2017, and other 3 models will come before the end of the year. Totally, there will be 13 models. Thanks to this amount the company will reach 90 million shipped units result. And probably it will outrun a couple of its competitors in face of OnePlus and Vivo.
