Xiaomi sells 10 million MI-3 units, outs gold version

05 July, 2014

A few days after boasting that it's sold more smartphones in the first half of 2014 than during all of last year, Xiaomi has a new sales number to be proud of.

The Chinese company has passed 10 million units sold for the MI-3, the flagship device it announced last September (and which became available three months after that).

The announcement comes straight from Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun. To celebrate this achievement, the company has released a special edition 'Champagne Gold' variation of the MI-3.

This is only available in China for the moment, but expect it to at some point also make it to the handful of other territories where Xiaomi is currently doing business. And who knows, with a more serious international expansion planned for this year, we may see it in a few other countries too.

In Xiaomi's homeland the gold MI-3 is priced at CNY 1,499 for the 16GB version. That currently equates to $241 or 177, and it's definitely a great price considering the specs you're getting.
