Chinese smartphone maker and electronics giant Xiaomi has just shared a new announcement on its official Twitter handle. According to the announcement, the company has crossed the one million mark in terms of the total number of Xiaomi Mi Band 3 units sold in India. Mi Band 3 is a third generation wearable and fitness tracker from the company bringing important tracking features to interested buyers at an affordable price of Rs 1,999. The company launched the wearable in India in September last year, a couple of months after launching it in China.
After the launch, the wearable device has reached the number one spot in the wearable band section according to the IDC Quarterly Wearable Device Tracker report for Q3 2018. The company stated that the one million sales number comes from its internal estimates for the period between September 2018 till March 2019. In addition to the announcement, the company also thanked its “Mi Fans” for the support in helping Xiaomi reach this milestone. This announcement also comes around the same time when information online indicates that the company is already working on Mi Band 4.
