Xiaomi ramping up Mi 9/SE production

Michail, 05 April 2019

Xiaomiís Mi 9 checks all the boxes for a 2019 flagship - Snapdragon 855, triple camera setup and a solid OLED screen. And with a sub-Ä500 price tag itís no wonder that the phone has been in high demand since it launched back in February - so much so in fact that Xiaomi has been unable to keep up and stock is always limited. The problems seem to be resolved as CEO Lei Jun confirmed in a Weibo post that production capacity has seen a rapid increase.

Last week, combined Mi 9 sales topped 1.5 million units, taking into account both the regular Mi 9 and its smaller brother the Mi 9 SE. However according to Xiaomiís CEO, production in early March encountered difficulties.

Without going into details, Lei Jun assured that the issues have been solved and the company is ready to push out more than 1 million Mi 9 units per month now. The Mi 9 Explorer/Transparent Edition still hasnít seen its global launch but given the ramped up production capabilities that might happen soon.
