I don’t know how many of you guys heard about the Chinese mobile company Xiaomi, but it managed to achieve a record in terms of sold units. The company sold no less than 200,000 M2S units in just 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.
The Xiaomi M2S does sport some impressive specs, and we further add the fact that it comes with an affordable price, there is no wonder that it’s so popular. The 16GB variant of the smartphone is sold for 1999 Yuan ($323.45 USD), while the 32GB model can be purchase for 2299 Yuan ($372.25 USD).
The handset does seem to bring the whole package and I don’t know if the phone maker will be able to keep up with the high demand. However, if we think about it 200,000 sold units is not that impressive considering the population of China. More amazing is that all the devices have been sold in under a minute.
The sad part is that, even though Xiaomi hasn’t offered any details about the matter, chances that the M2S will be sold outside of Asia.
