One of the most anticipated phones of Xiaomi brand, the Pocophone F1 launched earlier this week. Xiaomi was able to sell 68,000 units of Pocophone F1(Poco F1) in just 5 mins of the sales conducted by India’s leading ecommerce platform Flipkart.

The phone was introduced last week in India and owing to sporting top-notch features and specifications it is hailed as one of the best phones out there with extreme value for money. The Pocophone series is diversifying the Xiaomi brand and is a strong contender to the smartphones available in the same price range.

The phone after getting such a warm response in India is expected to make its way to Pakistan as well.

Xiaomi has stayed mum on the number of devices sold at the sale but it has officially announced that a business of 200CR+ happened in the first five minutes of the sales. Now if we put the prices of Pocophones in perspective, it means that at least 68,000 Pocophones were ordered in 5 minutes. If the buying trend was tilted towards the cheapest model this would mean that Xiaomi sold even more than 68,000 smartphones.
