Merwyn Fernandes, 06 Jun 2018Lol , Its Xiaomi that doesn't want to enter US , because they know that if they do they'll be ... moreYou still havent answered why huawei is sold in Europe, which happens to be ally of US, not to mention it is third there. Security Riiiiiiight! Just a bunch of lies and deceptions by you. It is plain lobbying nothing else
SadeepaT, 06 Jun 2018yeah yeah...they became 4th manufacturer in the world by only selling 10 units in Flash sales.... moreTheir Sales Stats / Data is as fake as their countries GDP, Because no data is released to the public , Everything is censored , So what ever they claim is the truth.
Even though in reality they may just be selling 100 Units they claim they sold 10k units.
So until Chinese companies become more transparent no one will believe their claims.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2018Ask your President ( Donald Trump)Lol , Its Xiaomi that doesn't want to enter US , because they know that if they do they'll be bankrupt soon after.
They couldn't fight a law suit to safe their life even by selling all their assets and wouldn't be able to repay for the sales they have achieved by cloning Apple.
Just imagine for every part they have copied if there is a lawsuit , So let's say they have infringed about 1000 patents so what will be the repatriation will they be able to afford it even by mortgaging their whole company.
Also all the carriers will block it because of security reasons and Most Retailers will drop it similar to what happened with Huawei.
US market is more sensitive with patents than 3rd world countries.

Perhaps the med... moreThere Were 100 units on sale and they all sold out in 2 seconds.
Now Xiaomi has placed the order to foxconn to manufacture 100 more for the next sale.
The same old "sold out in XX time" with the crappy and evil flash sale. They will never say how many phones are sold.

maybe the flash sale is offering only very small number of units (ie. 10 units) so year I wouldn't be suprised it it gets sold out within a few seconds. We should really not make a fuss of such flash sales from manufacturers. its marketing gimmick and beneits nobody except themselves.
Redskitter, 05 Jun 2018That's always a problem with Xiaomi, everytime they launched a new products for consumers they... moreIf they put prices sky high like Samy and Huaweu then this won't be an issue and nobody will be that interested. I prefer to buy 2 months after release but on current prices.
"We're still awaiting word on how many phones there were in the first sale"
Perhaps the media/websites etc should gather the facts before sensational and playing into the hands of the manufacturers big font headlines of "sells out in under a minute" headlines.
They are playing you like a bunch of numpties........ so predictable. So sad :(

Kress, 05 Jun 2018In the land with no copyrights, exact iPhone X copy sells well. Strange, isn't it? :)Yeah and we love it. Bring it Xiaomi ...we all waiting to buy one..
That's always a problem with Xiaomi, everytime they launched a new products for consumers they never put more stocks. Anywhere in the world, this is always a problem. There's no proper distributions, some people resorts of buying to blackmarkets which is higher than SRP.
One thing as well, why they did'nt launced a product simultaneously to the world same as other Smartphone makers. Why always China first?

Ridiculous locking systems, Apple-only components and repair, all sorts of IDs, leaks in various services (iCloud), no-privacy, yet sell their overpriced, branded garbage to sheep while speaking about a world tech-revolution.
Bob007, 05 Jun 2018I don't think they will release it in India ,they would probably release mi 8 SE They aren't going to launch the Mi8SE but will launch the regular Mi8 though.
