A simple repeat of the first sale; the Xiaomi Mi 8 sold out once more in its second flash sale. If you remember, during the first sale, the flagship manage to sell out in just 37 seconds and while the time was not noted here, it reveals that the device’s extreme level of affordability and performance will allow it to become very popular on Xiaomi’s home turf as well as overseas markets.
Three Variants of the Xiaomi Mi 8 Went on the Flash Sale – All Three Were Sold Out
According to details taken from Anzhuo, the three models of the Xiaomi Mi 8 that were being sold were the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage model, followed by the 128GB storage variant with the same amount of RAM, and last, but certainly not least, the 256GB storage version. While the handset was available in the blue and gold flavors, it was able to sell out very quickly.
Unfortunately, no information has been provided as to how many units of the smartphone were actually sold. However, if you compare the features, specifications and other details of the OnePlus 6 and Xiaomi Mi 8, you will notice that the latter comes at a very affordable price and is by far, the cheapest Snapdragon 845-fueled smartphone you can find right now.
The base model of the Mi 8 starts at approximately $421 (6GB of RAM + 64GB storage), which should be plentiful for a lot of customers out there. However, there are others that require more storage and since the flagship does not come with an expandable storage slot, they were inclined to pick up the beefier storage versions.
While the number of units has not been detailed by the company, we are confident that a large number of them have been sold, and that is thanks to the Mi 8’s price/performance ratio.
