Xiaomi loves numbers. That is no surprise considering the ‘impressive’ sales figures that the young phonemaker manages to secure.
It wouldn’t be unfair to say that it is Xiaomi that got flash sales in fashion. Almost every other smartphone company, especially Chinese, is now having flash sales.
Xiaomi’s newest budget bomb is the Redmi Note 2. The smartphone is priced at a starting price of US$125 (799 Yuan) in China. Very few phones make a lasting impression right from the time you see the specs sheet of those, and the Redmi Note 2 is one of them.
The Helio X10 powered phone boasts enough tech to rival the likes of the Meizu MX5, and even the HTC One M9+ up to some extent.
According to Xiaomi, the company received a whopping 800,000 orders for the phone in a matter of just 12 hours. And when you realize that the Redmi Note 2 is yet to go on sale in any market outside China, the number looks even bigger.
