A phone called the Xiaomi Mi Max officially launched last week and the starting gate has since been rendered invisible. The company has been giving away a few lots of the phone to some lucky Weibo users, but the real roadshow is still set for May 17 — and that’s only to sell 100,000 units of the lower-speccd version with a Snapdragon 650, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.

Kinda sad to see that the masses will have to keep waiting. And by masses, we mean 10 million pre-orders. The pre-order tally was up to 8 million within the first couple days of availability last week, so we’ve seen the typical drop-off. Still, not an insignificant milestone.

The Mi 5 got nearly 15 million pre-orders in its first days out of the press release.
