It looks like business is good for Xiaomi in India. In January, the company announced that its revenue in 2016 exceeded $1 billion in the country. Now, the Chinese manufacturer has another reason to celebrate.
It recently announced that it sold one million Redmi Note 4 smartphones in India in the 45 days since it launched. This means that it sold one unit every four seconds. Additionally, Xiaomi claims that the Redmi Note 4 is currently the fastest device to sell one million units in India.
Xiaomi’s smartphones are quite popular among Indian consumers, mainly because of the great price-performance ratio they offer. During the Redmi Note 4 flash sale, Xiaomi sold 250,000 devices in just 10 minutes.
