Xiaomi has sold 250,000 Redmi Note 4 units in 10 minutes during its first flash sale in India. The device was made available at 12 noon yesterday via Flipkart and mi.com and won’t be on sale again until next week.

The Redmi Note 4 has big boots to fill as its predecessor, the Redmi Note 3, is India’s most purchased online phone; it achieved more than 2.3 million sales in roughly six months last year.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 starts at Rs 9,999 (~$147) for the 2 GB RAM + 32 GB storage model, while you’ll pay Rs 10,999 (~$162) for 3 GB + 32 GB storage. The top-end variant costs Rs 12,999 (~$190) and comes with 4 GB RAM + 64 GB of internal storage space.

Hugo Barra to leave Xiaomi and return to Silicon Valley

The device launched in three colors but only the grey and gold variations were available in the first sale. The matte black variant may be introduced in the next sale, which begins at noon on January 30 on Flipkart or perhaps at Xiaomi’s Mi Store sale on February 3.
