Following the launch of Thursday's Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro, demand for Xiaomi's new flagship models has increased tremendously, and stocks are out of stock in no time. This was to be expected, as due to the corona virus, several production lines in China have been shut down in recent weeks, and so many devices have not been made. Xiaomi is therefore asking people to be patient and wait for the next shipment.
Xu Jieyun, chief executive of Xiaomi's PR department, posted a post on the Chinese community portal, reassuring everyone that new handsets will be coming soon.
"According to the e-commerce back-end data of the Xiaomi 10 series pre-sale and the first sale of Xiaomi 10, at least nearly 40% of the users are from other brands (one of which has outstanding contributions). This data is higher than our expectation. Suddenly there are so many new friends. The rice noodles friends who haven't bought today, please be tolerant. Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro will be sold for the first time on February 18.
This also reflects that after this conference, the consumer demand of the mobile phone industry has been fully activated, which is another positive signal in the process of the industry's return to normal operation.
A better future is ahead." Source: Weibo
We also learned from the post that nearly 40% of first-time buyers and pre-orderers used other manufacturers' equipment before the Xiaomi Mi 10. This is both surprising and flattering for the manufacturer, as the company has gained a lot of new customers. It has reassured prospective customers that production lines that have been halted so far are now back in full force, so they won't have to wait too long for a dedicated phone.
The Mi 10 Pro will be available to Chinese buyers for the first time on February 18, but will probably not stay with this version for long.
There is no information yet on when the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro for the international market will be released.
