10 Million Mi 4 Smartphones Sold, 6 Million Mi Bands Shipped: Xiaomi
Back in April, the Mi 4 back received a Rs. 2,000 price cut that brought down the pricesto Rs. 17,999 for the 16GB model and Rs. 21,999 for the 64GB model. Notably, the 16GB model of the Mi 4 has not received any price cut this time. Xiaomi India’s move to bring down the price of the 64GB model of the Mi 4 was seen as a move to undercut the price of OnePlus One, another hot-selling smartphone in the same category, which is selling at Rs. 21,998 via Amazon India.
To recall, Xiaomi India in December had announced that the company managed to sell 1 million smartphones in the country.
The Mi Band, on the other hand, also crossed a major milestone this month – crossing 6 million in worldwide shipments, as of June 10. The figures were listed by a publication quoting a company spokesperson. The numbers are interesting considering that Xiaomi back in December claimed that the company’s first fitness tracker had shipped over 1 million units since the tracker went on sale on August 18 last year. If this is true, Xiaomi shipped around 5 million Mi Band units within six months.
The figures are supported by IDC’s report for Q1 2015, which found Xiaomi shipped 2.8 million units in the first quarter of this year.
The report has even claimed that Xiaomi is working on its next-generation Mi Band to launch this year alongside its first ever smartwatch. Sharing some details, the report suggested that the company is working with Huami for the smartwatch and claimed that it will stick to a round dial for the smartwatch while will keep it slim.
