Xiaomi recently announced its new flagship product, the Mi 9, at MWC 2019 in Barcelona. The Chinese smartphone manufacturer also announced that the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, powered by 5G, was not yet available for sale. The Xiaomi Mi 9 went on sale for the first time this Monday in China and fell out of stock in 53 seconds.

The affordability and high-end specifications of the Xiaomi Mi 9, including the Snapdragon 855 and triple back cameras, also explain its huge demand.
