Xiaomi sold at one time 3.3 million Redmi K40 smartphones
As it became known, China Mobile, the largest Chinese operator, has acquired 3.3 million mobile phones from Xiaomi. We are talking about Redmi K40, Redmi K40 Pro and Redmi K40 Pro + smartphones.
According to official figures, initial sales of Redmi K40 smartphones exceeded 300,000 units, but this result pales in comparison with the purchase made by China Mobile.
After the appearance of this information; some users on Weibo comically noted that it is now clear why smartphones of this line are almost impossible to buy. However, there may be a large amount of truth in this joke.
Earlier, Lu Weibing, who is the president of Xiaomi Group China and the CEO of Redmi; explained on his Weibo page his version of why the Redmi K40 series smartphones are so difficult to buy. According to him, in the face of a shortage of components, Redmi leaves the price at a very low level; which provokes an increase in demand, which is difficult to satisfy.
Earlier today, sources published the first official images of the new Poco F3 smartphone; which is a copy of the Redmi K40 for different countries of the world.
Also, recently, the company decided to explain why the Redmi K40 Pro lacks an under-screen fingerprint scanner. According to the manufacturer; the side scanner retains the advantage of fast and accurate unlocking while still providing an aesthetic appearance to the device.
