ZTE Nubia X6 sells out in 9.8 seconds
When it comes to selling out mobile devices in record-breaking times, Xiaomi is usually the company that comes to mind. It achieves its record sellouts both thanks to the incredibly big number of people who want to purchase its wares and the fact that it releases its products in batches.
This time around, though, it isn’t Xiaomi boasting about selling out of a certain smartphone in a record amount of time. It’s actually ZTE. The company says it sold out of its first batch of Nubia X6 phablets in less than 10 seconds. 9.8, to be exact. That’s… mind-boggling, and it comes to confirm how phablet-crazed Asia is in general (and China in particular).
However, ZTE hasn’t made the size of that first batch of Nubia X6 units public, so this achievement may actually be less impressive than it first appears. If we’re talking about 100,000 units, it’s one thing. And it’s quite another if ZTE only had 5,000 handsets to sell on the first occasion. And since it isn’t bragging about the amount of devices sold, just the time it took for them to sell out, the second version is a lot more likely – namely, that this wasn’t a big batch to begin with.
The Nubia X6 will again go on sale on May 27 at 10 AM, though it’s still limited to China. Let’s hope ZTE will provide more units this time around.
