the folks over at Xiaomi happen to be making all the right headlines yet again, as they have achieved yet another milestone this time around. In fact, they have hit another milestone with the Redmi Note 2 – a handset that was just released in China a month ago. In fact, Xiaomi sold 800,000 units in a matter of 12 hours during its first flash sale in China, and interest in the handset had continued to grow from strength to strength, surpassing the 1.5 million sales as of September 5.
Needless to say, this can be considered to be an all-time best record for Xiaomi – at the moment, of course, as who knows what the future will hold? Such a sales rate, if maintained or even accelerated, would see the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 pass the 10 million mark in a jiffy before the end of the year arrives. After all, the asking price of a mere $125 for the 16GB model and $156 for the 32GB model is pleasing to the wallet, taking into consideration how it packs a MediaTek Helio X10 SoC alongside eight Cortex-A53 CPU cores, a 5.5” 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a 3,060mAh battery, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing shooter, dual SIM support, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and IR blaster.
