Xiaomi reports that the company sold the very first 184,600 Android units. The article by PhoneArena noted that if imagined, this would mean that all of the individuals that bought the Xiaomi Mi 1 will actually be eligible to request a refund.

This would reportedly equate to a whopping $57 million in refunds or rather about $309 for every person.
