The Xiaomi Redmi Note has been a huge success ever since it was first announced earlier this March, where this 5.5” phablet saw its pre-orders surpass the 15 million mark over in China, and with the floodgates opened for it to go on sale, over 100,000 units were moved in a matter of 34 minutes. Well, we also know that the Xiaomi Redmi Note will be made available outside of China as well, but just how well will it do? In neighboring Taiwan, we have the answer. Apparently, the Xiaomi Redmi Note managed to sell a whopping 10,000 units in just one second!
This is truly phenomenal, and if you were to extrapolate that feat into a time span of 34 minutes ala China, then we are talking about 20.4 million Xiaomi Redmi Note devices sold in that time frame. Truly amazing, the Xiaomi Redmi Note is. Just to recap, this 5.5” phablet will run on an octa-core MT6592 processor that hails from MediaTek, coupled with a 720 x 1,280 resolution display, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory. At the back lies a 13MP camera, with it rocking to a 3,200mAh battery. In fact, at $167 (after conversion) a pop, it is no wonder that the Xiaomi Redmi Note sold out so quickly, and no doubt some would-be buyers were more than upset when they found out that right after opening the homepage, the phone was no longer available for purchase.
