The Xiaomi 14 series was a huge success in China as the Chinese maker sold 600% of units compared to last year’s first-day and full-day sales volumes. Cut to now, the Xiaomi 14 Pro Titanium Special Edition is facing a huge demand in the country and due to the significant consumer interest, the model is scarce so much so that people are paying higher in the secondary markets to own one.
Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun took it to China’s social network Weibo confirming the exhilarating high demand for the Xiaomi 14 Pro Titanium Special Edition. He added that due to the challenges working with titanium translated into lower yield, Xiaomi has seen slower production rates compared to the high volume demand.
Xiaomi says that it is working tirelessly to make the 14 Pro Titanium edition available in the markets soon and all it does for the buyers is to keep some patience. According to Xiaomi, it isn’t easy working with titanium given the high quality standards set for Xiaomi 14 Pro. The Chinese giant uses 99% pure titanium which is difficult to process and takes time leading to scarcity of availability.
The tech giant has assured interested buyers that the Xiaomi 14 Pro Titanium Special Edition is not limited and thus, it will be available for a long time. There’s no need to pay a premium in the secondary markets as the phones will be available soon.
Xiaomi saw unprecedented demand after launching the Xiaomi 14 series compounded by better design, HyperOS debut, and the title of the first phone lineup to be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. The demand was so high that the 14 series sold 600% more within just the first five minutes compared to the Xiaomi 13 series initial sales.
Xiaomi 14 Pro Titanium Special Edition retails at 6,499 yuan (equivalent to $907) and takes on the likes of iPhone 15 Pro and 15 Pro Max, both of which have titanium frames. Xiaomi has maintained that its titanium is 99% pure and processed to prevent any fingerprints and is resistant to forces. It remains to be seen if and when the Xiaomi 14 series drops in India and global markets.
