Xiaomi sells 200,000 Xiaomi M2S smartphones in just 45 seconds

April 23, 2013

Xiaomi Mi2S

Xiaomi has recorded the sale of all 200,000 Xiaomi M2S smartphones in stock, in just 45 seconds. Yes, you read that correctly, 45 seconds!

The Xiaomi M2S comes with some heavy hitting specifications, like a 1.7Ghz Quad-Core Snapdragon 600 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 720p, 4.3 inch screen. The 16GB version comes with an eight megapixel camera, and the 32GB edition brings an updated 13 megapixel camera to the party. In fact, Xiaomi claims that the phone is faster than the Galaxy S4 (with the same Snapdragon 600 processor).

Xiaomi says that the M2S can achieve a score of 25,913 in Antutu, besting the S4′s slightly lower score of 25,446. That impressive claim is made more believable by the fact that the M2S is pushing less pixels than the Galaxy S4, but it will be interesting to see if the claims are genuine.

With specs like those, all Xiaomi needed was a sweet price to coax the phone down people’s throats. The 16GB version costs 1999 Yuan ($323.45 USD) and the 32GB model costs just 2299 Yuan ($372.25 USD).

With an amazing price, it’s no wonder the phone is such a big hit, however, it’s unlikely we’ll ever see the Xiaomi M2S outside of Asia.

Would you have considered grabbing one of these, if it were available in your country? Let us know in the comments.

    There’s a few people selling here http://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?SearchText=xiaomi+m2s&catId=0&initiative_id=SB_20130423054414 but who knows if they’re real.

  • IMcNamara

    prob would have got one yeah – sounds ok! Sell Xperia Z, €300 in my pocket!

  • M.B

    It will probably die in 6 months….and people would have wished they should have spent a little more money on a better phone.

    • le_lutin

      You should troll a bit better next time.

    Looks allot like Nokia’s lumia designe…

    • AndroidShiz

      To me the only thing that looks like Lumia are the color variety, but the phone itself looks completely different in my opinion anyways.

  • http://yellowrex.com YellowRex

    Shame you can’t get them for a reasonable price from an importer – prices are jacked up to double or more.

  • AndroidShiz

    These phones look nice and simplistic. I don’t know if I’d get them for me, maybe if one of them came in black, but I would definitely get one for my female relatives as Christmas or birthday gifts at such a cheap price point. The price point for the 32 gig is pretty stinking good. Considering that I have a 16gb Nexus 4 that was $362 w/shipping.

    Looks really nice and clean! I’d probably get one if there’s a need for a second phone. But right now, I can have multiple numbers on a single smartphone. So until I’m travelling the world non-stop, I prob won’t get one.

  • Javee Tian

    I may be mistaken or it could just be the photo that they chose but it looks like it’s running MIUI out of the box, is that the case?/is that normal in China?

    • Amrish

      Xiaomi makes MIUI

      • http://www.facebook.com/nschiwy Nick Schiwy

        I did not know that. lol I thought it was an independent ROM all this time. Good stuff.

  • Ke nny

    Absolutely

    how?? at tis price??with snapdragon 600??????…wonder

    • Anonymousfella

      Selling at cost price or a just a little higher…remember all the “branded” phones are too made in china…its just that we pay a premium for brand-its advertising, profits etc As they are just selling it in china, most of these costs are obliterated and they are able to generate a handsome profit by these amazing sales numbers…

  • prashant

    pl.mention the adress..

    I own a Mi2, best Android phone on the market, hands down. I assume the M2S has that title now.

  • GuessMyPic

    wow!

  • faheemahmed007

    I’ll buy the whole stock without a single eye blink. ;) awesome man!

  • Benjamin Thorgersen

    Reading these news about mi phone makes me depressed. And the simple reason for this is that this is nor will ever be available for me. I am stuck with bloody Samsung and HTC meanwhile asia laughs at me while they buy yet another new mi phone that simply crushes any competitor.
    Please come to Norway China? We could get married and have beautiful little islands together!

  • CemiL

    Whats the price of it ?

  • noobdenial

    I was lucky enough to be in Taiwan when it was released and was able to order one through a store. Got it the next day. Will be back in the states with it soon.

    Selling 200,000 units of Xiaomi M2S in just 45secs is breathtaking indeed for this phone! But I’m sure China can do more! It’s no wonder, when I saw this on merimobiles.com it has a really good deal. The specs is just unbelieavably great for the cheap price.
