Are you are among those people who have been using Xiaomi phones since their inception? Yes, then there’s good news for you!
Xiaomi launched its first smartphone, Mi 1 almost 10 years ago in 2011 in their hub, China. Mi 1 was undoubtedly the best Android smartphone launched at that time, offering flagship-level specifications at a minimal price, something which OnePlus did almost 3 years later.
Now, Xiaomi has decided that they will refund everyone who supported the company during their initial days by pre-ordering and buying Mi 1. According to the numbers given out by Xiaomi, this sold almost 1,84,600 units of Mi 1 at a price of 1,999 yuan. And if you do the maths, Xiaomi made a profit of 370 million yuan by just selling their first smartphone.
However, Mi 1 buyers are not going to get proper hard cash in their bank account, instead, Xiaomi has decided to give them online store credit, as per a machine-translated image attached to Xiaomi’s Weibo post suggest. Whatever the way be, it’s good to know that Xiaomi is acknowledging the customers who have supported them since their initial days.
