Well, in what seem to be quite expected, the Poco F1 is already racking in insane sales numbers on the first day of sale.

Through its official Twitter account (for India), the company announced that it made a total of INR 200 Crores (2 billion Indian Rupees) from the 5 minutes Flipkart flash sale of the Poco F1!

And while Xiaomi didn’t exactly announced how many units of the device were sold, GSMArena estimates that it could range from 69,000 to 100,000, depending on the variants of the device that were sold.

The sale happened at about 12PM on August 29 and it was the first flash sale of the Poco F1 in the region. The flags sale is also said to be Flipkart’s biggest and fastest flash sale ever!

According to the tweet above, the next flash sale of the Poco F1 will happen on September 5. And whether or not the sales number and figures will equal or exceed this 2 billion feat, we look forward to finding out. But it most likely won’t. Or what do you think?
