In the first half of 2015, Xiaomi has already sold about 34.7 million smartphones. This is a rather impressive number in terms of sales. And when compared to the iPhone which sold around 56 million (forecast numbers, but these tend to be reflected in reality), it seems the gap is getting smaller thanks to Xiaomi selling strong in China.

Xiaomi sales at a record high but still miss target

Sure 34.7 million sold units is a pretty impressive number, and keep in mind that these numbers are actually devices that were sold to consumers, and not just shipping numbers that virtually any manufacturer can make up. But unfortunately, it’s a far cry from what CEO Lei Jun proclaimed long ago that Xiaomi will reach or will sell a 100 million phones this year. (Recently, there has been a shipment decline in China so that may have affected the sales numbers.)

While 34.7 is still a far cry from the projected 100 million sales, Xiaomi is still optimistic to reach those sales numbers. The strength in Xiaomi is in affordability, and right now the popular Xiaomi Redmi 2 Pro Smartphone is on sale at 49% off on, from the original price of $255.71, the price is now down to $129.99.

In 2014, Xiaomi sold 61.1 million smartphones world-wide making them a top contender and one of the biggest smart phone companies in the world. So it’s wonder why the company would be making optimistic sales projections for 2015.

Xiaomi did not release exact numbers but they did say they sold about 10 million units each of the Mi 2, Mi 3, Redmi, Redmi Note, Mi4 and Redmi 2. And as of now, the market for Xiaomi phones is going strong in China, Taiwan, HongKong,Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, India, Indonesia and are planning to expand their business operations to more locations in the future.
