Xiaomi Releases the Hongmi Phone: Sells a 100,000 Units in 90 Seconds


One of China’s biggest smartphone brands, Xiaomi, has released its latest budget phone, named the Hongmi. The Hongmi costs $130 and packs quite a punch. The phone was unveiled only two weeks ago and started selling yesterday morning at a local retailer. It was sold out only one and a half minute later with more customers still waiting to get the phone. The company revealed the statistics on its Sina Weibo account and also uncovered that it has received 7.45 million reservations already, more than the total sales of the company in 2012.

Even with the low price tag, the Hongmi is a great phone having a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 4.7-inch HD screen, 1GB of RAM and a PowerVR SGX544 GPU. It also contains a great 8MP camera with a large sensor size to allow more light to pass through. The phone possesses one of the latest versions of Android, Android 4.2 Jellybean with Xiaomi owns custom skin running on it.

All in all, it is a great phone at an even better price, no wonder it got sold out so fast. I can’t wait to get my hands on this one.
