Xiaomi India sold a million Redmi Note 4 units within 45 days, one unit every 4 seconds

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has created a new record by selling a million of its Redmi Note 4 within a span of just 45 days, tagging it as the fastest smartphone to reach that milestone, in India. Xiaomi’s smartphones are popular among Indian consumers, primarily due to a great price-performance ratio at a legitimate price. The Redmi Note 4 was put up for its first flash sale on January 23 via Flipkart and Mi.com and in just 10 minutes over 250,000 units of the smartphone were sold. And the 1 million sales within a time period of 45 days implies, one unit was sold every 4 seconds.

The achievement is more enjoyable for Xiaomi because the phone wasn't even available for most of those 45 days and only became available on selected sale days. One could imagine how many more units it would have sold if Xiaomi opted for a non-flash sales model along with offline sales network. Xiaomi also had a strong 2016 in India, with its revenue exceeding $1 billion in the country.The impressive sales figures for the Redmi Note 3 (2.3 million units in six months) and the Redmi 3S series helped it to achieve this feat, though its premium offerings like the Mi 5, failed to live up to the hype or attract much attention.
