Earlier today, the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition went on its debut sales in China but was quickly sold out in less than a minute after the sales kicked off.
Of course, this isn’t anything we should be surprised about. Ever since the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition was announced back in May this year, the device has impressed many across the world with its transparent rear chassis that shows off the upper half of its internal circuit board. Although its 3,699 Yuan ($542) price tag is relatively more expensive than the other smartphones in the Mi 8 series, but that doesn’t seems to hinder its Chinese fans from snatching one for themselves.
As of now, Xiaomi has yet to reveal when the next round of sales will occur although rumors have it that the device could go on sale again in August next month.
