Chinese Smartphone Maker Xiaomi Says It Sold 10 Million Mi-2 smartphones

As long anticipated, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi revealed via Twitter that the startup phone-maker has sold 10 million of its flagship smartphone Android-based Mi-2, and its variants Mi-2S and Mi-2A, in the past 11 months.

China’s hottest homegrown smartphone “Xiaomi Mi2” first went on sale last October.

To refresh your memory, the Xiaomi Mi2 smartphone will soon be replaced in mid-October by the Mi-3, which was launched early this month.

The Xiaomi Mi3 will have a 5-inch screen, which is larger than the Mi2’s 4.3-inch one. The screen is full 1080p HD this time.
