The Chinese smartphone beast - Xiaomi! sets a Guinness World Record for 
selling 2.11 million handsets in a 24-hour flash sale on Thursday which is held to celebrate it's 5th Anniversary - MI Fan Festival.

This peak sale brought in $335 million from selling handsets and other accessories and broke a previous record by Alibaba's Tmall, which sold 1.89 million handsets in a day in November during a 24-hour event.

The Chief Executive of Xiaomi 'Lei Jun' posted on Sina Weibo (chinese equivalent of Twitter) that "Good news: Xiaomi just set a new Guinness World Record, selling 2.11 million mobile phones in 24 hours" just after the event.

This record has been certified by the official Guinness World Records! Xiaomi broke their old record of selling 1.3 million smartphones from the same event last year.

The smartphones and other accessories sold during the 24-hour event were given more discount from Xiaomi's already famous low prices! Lei explained that the company was mainly focussed on making smartphones, televisions, routers and other products sold on their website.

In 2014, Xiaomi sold 61 million smartphones and got a revenue of 74.3 billion CNY, which made Xiaomi world's number 3 smartphone player and China's top smartphone brand surpassing Apple and Samsung.
Xiaomi was valued at $45 billion in a funding round in December, that grabbed investors ranging from Singapore's sovereign wealth fund to a private capital firm backed by Alibaba Group co-founder Jack Ma!
