Xiaomi Redmi 1S is one of the worlds best selling phones

Xiaomi is quite a┬áremarkable company. Within only four years they have managed to achieve┬áthings their┬ácompetitors are still dreaming of. The once small start-up from China not only managed to create a huge world-wide community consisting of over 70 million people, they also managed to become the world’s 5th largest phone manufacturer. The key to success: Affordable phones featuring high-end specs and perfectly optimized software / hardware ecosystem, and of course their Redmi line-up, which enabled them to achieve several huge successes within the mid-range market.

Now Xiaomi┬áhave done┬áit again: The Xiaomi Redmi 1S has become the world’s 4th best-selling phone. According to CST, the Xiaomi Redmi 1S┬áis even being called the worlds most popular phone, going off┬ásales volume alone. In India, Xiaomi’s most recent choice of expansion, the company sells around┬á40,000 units per week.

Will Xiaomi be able to continue┬ámaking its way on this path of success? Hard to say for sure, but listening to current rumors they probably will, as the same are claiming a new Redmi phone to be in the works, featuring Mediatek’s MT6595 powerhouse, 3GB of RAM and a 20.7 mega pixel camera. If those rumors are true remains to be seen. We certainly have a little doubt, as such a phone would compete against another phone by Xiaomi, the Mi4.
