Last week, Xiaomi took the wrap off their latest Mi Max 2 smartphone with high hopes that their new 6.44″ phablet can replicate the success of its Mi Max predecessor after the latter reportedly crosses a remarkable sales figure of more than 3 million units.
Earlier today, the Mi Max 2 had finally inches over the 100,000 registrations mark on JD.com although it seems to be more of a worrisome sign rather than a success for the Chinese manufacturer this time round. If can remember, during the same duration last year, the Mi Max had already crossed the 8 million registrations mark which is a tremendous difference compared to the current 100,000 registrations for the upcoming June 1st flash sale.
The reason behind this stunning drop in registration numbers remain unclear although some of the possible explanations could be the impracticability of taking part in the flash sale as it is nearly impossible for the fans to grab one unit during the flash sale since the stocks usually run out quickly. Likewise, some reports also claimed that such registration numbers can be bogus as it could part of a company’s marketing strategy although we wouldn’t want speculate too deeply into this.
