Xiaomi have announced today a record milestone for the company with the sale of 110 million Redmi devices over the past 3 years.

Since the Redmi sub brand launch 3 years ago, the phones have proven to be popular with people wanting decent performance and knock down pricing. The original Redmi 1 launched back on the 12th August 2013, and since that time the phone maker has managed to rack up 110 million sales.

The Redmi Range of phones are normally bought by customers aged from 22-29 and is currently made up of the rather amazing Xiaomi Redmi 3 Pro and Note 3 devices with all metal bodies and fingerprint scanners.

Xiaomi are likely to continue building up the range of Redmi phones over the coming year, but next for the phone maker is a Xiaomi Mi5S and a Redmi Note 2 which may get dual rear cameras.

    Not surprising at all. The budget and midrange categories is where most companies make their money.

      May I ask you two questions? I apologize if perhaps I’ve already asked one of them (I don’t remember!). I live in Thailand. I know my telco (DTAC) uses 3G on the 2100MHz band, but do you know whether that is CDMA or UMTS? Thanks! 2nd question is—is Geekbuying reputable? What’s YOUR preferred vendor?

        All networks in Thailand are UMTS for 3G. And just for reference for LTE in Thailand (DTAC, AIS or True) you need bands 1 and 3. Luckily those are the most common bands and are on virtually every phone.

        As for resellers I have used Geekbuying once they were okay. My favorites are 1949deal, Merimobiles and Pandawill.

    I’m not surprised at all, the Redmi Note 3 Pro (SD650) is such a solid device for the money!

    Well done Xiaomi!

    Well done Xiaomi, now i can afford to buy a descent (good) smartphone with cheap price. $100 – $200 is a convenience range for mainstream smartphone for me.

    My redmi note 3 pro (3GB/32GB) was my best purchase ever !!!! no competitor at all for price below $170

    last time was quite hopeless, cheap price was equal to low quality smartphone, since i always got not enough $$$ so really no choice but to buy those cheap unknown china brand, regretfully their build quality sucks. Lesson learned the hard way after i bought some units (different brands) and all have problems after using for a couple months.

    Considering how many phones they sell I am surprised it isn’t more.
