When you think of Xiaomi, you probably think of devices that are decently specced for its price. You probably also think of how fast the company sells its phones. For example last year, the Xiaomi Redmi 1 managed to sell a whopping 60,000 units in 13.9 seconds, a very impressive feat indeed.
That being said, the company recently launched the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 and if you’re wondering how the phone is doing, it is doing very well indeed. According to reports, it seems that the Chinese company has successfully moved an eye-watering 800,000 units in 12 hours, although we suppose if we were to break it down in average sales per second, the Redmi 1 is definitely the more “successful” of the two.
Now for those who are hearing about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 for the first time and are wondering what makes a handset like this so popular, here’s a quick recap on the specs. The handset features a 5.5-inch Full HD display and under the hood, a MediaTek Helio X10 processor is running the show.
It will come in 2GHz and 2.2GHz models along with 2GB of RAM, and 16/32GB storage options with a microSD card slot for memory expansion. There is also a 13MP rear-facing camera accompanying the phone, a 5MP front-facing camera, and all of this can be had starting at $125 for the 16GB model, and $155 for the 32GB model. As it stands Xiaomi has yet to break into the US smartphone market.
