It is 7 years already since Xiaomi entered the smartphone and smart gadgets market. As part of activities to mark the Mi Fans festival and its 7th anniversary, Xiaomi was offering a variety of products at up to 50% off as well as several free gifts. There are loads of discounts on a whole lot of products like the Walkie-Talkie, Piston Pro in-ear headset, smartphones, Mi Notebook, children toys and others.
The company has also used this period to announce its top 10 hottest selling ecological chain products in the ongoing sales. The list contains a number of products and does not include smartphones. While the mobile phone business is the major core of Xiaomi’s profits, the MIJIA smart home ecological products are some silent cash cow for the company. Records from the Mi Fans Festival sales reveal that as at the evening of the first day of the festivals, a record sale of 5 million Yuan was made. The entire records will hopefully be disclosed when the festival ends on April 9.
