Meanwhile, the head of Redmi Liu Weibing announced that the company has decided to try its hand at the gaming smartphone segment in order to popularize them. According to him, gaming mobile phones are not very popular due to their high cost.
“Today the cost of a processor is at least $ 10, memory and the screen are even more expensive. There are also marketing costs. If you add up all the costs; it turns out that creating an affordable gaming smartphone is not an easy task. In this situation, popularizing gaming smartphones is not easy, ”said Liu Weibing.
However, Redmi sees its mission to offer affordable gaming smartphones to users. It believes in the success of its first child and plans to sell 1.7 million Redmi K40 Game Edition.
