Yesterday, in a press release Xiaomi has explained the whole process as follows:
“Ordering a Mi Note follows the exact same process as calling for an Uber – users simply open the Uber app, use the slider at the bottom of the screen to select ‘Xiaomi’ (which shows Xiaomi-orange colored Uber cars on the map equipped to deliver the new smartphone), and hit request. Payment will be charged directly to the credit card tied to a rider’s Uber account and a Mi Note will be delivered to the user within a few minutes.”
Uber teams up with Xiaomi to deliver Mi Note phones and within 4 minutes of order placement, an Uber driver will be on his way to deliver the phone. The amount will be charged on the Uber account of a user and the phone will be delivered as soon as possible to his or her location.
