Xiaomi Mi3 Sold Out in 2 Minutes in Singapore

Good news for Xiaomi, as the company announced it managed to sell all Mi3 units put on sale in Singapore on March 7 in only 2 minutes. This is not a first for the Chinese company, which is well-known in the mainland for selling their devices in less than 5 minutes.

However, for the time being, Xiaomi did not offer any details on the amount of units it has sold in Singapore, but we suspect the company had around 200-300,000 Xiaomi Mi3 devices in stock. Lucky customers who managed to secure their Xiaomi Mi3 units are advised to complete their payment within 24 hours so they won’t lose their placed orders. Unfortunately, there’s no word on exactly when the next batch of Xiaomi Mi3 devices will arrive in Singapore, but we can safely assume the Chinese company would want to bring more in the coming weeks to fulfill the increased need for high-end smartphones. For those unaware, Xiaomi Mi3 has been priced in Singapore at $330 (€240) outright, which is quite decent judging by the smartphone’s specs sheet. The only downside of the smartphone might be the fact that Xiaomi rarely offers major software updates for its devices, so Mi3 owners might be stuck on Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean operating system while the newest high-end handsets arrive with KitKat platform onboard.

Overall though Xiaomi Mi3 is a more than decent alternative to high-end smartphones launched by well-known brands such as Samsung, LG and HTC. The smartphone comes equipped with a powerful 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor inside, which is complemented by an equally more than decent Adreno 330 graphics processing unit. Xiaomi Mi3 packs 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, but it does not feature microSD card slot for memory expansion. The only way to take advantage of more storage space is to create an account on Dropbox or other similar service that offers free cloud storage. Aside from that, the Mi3 is worthy of the top-tier category. The smartphone boasts a 5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution, as well as an enhanced 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus, dual-LED flash and 1080p video recording.

The handset also features a secondary 2-megapixel camera in the front that will allow users to take as many selfies as they wish or make video calls. Another strong point of the Xiaomi Mi3 would be the high-capacity non-removable 3050 mAh battery. Here is hoping the Chinese company will bring more Mi3 units in Singapore. Stay tuned for more details on when that will happen.
