Xiaomi is one of the fastest growing mobile companies on the planet. It has particularly become a leader in China’s smartphone market in just a few years and is now gradually expanding to additional markets. The company revealed some interesting numbers today. Ever since the first Redmi smartphone was launched in August 2013 it has sold more than 110 million Redmi handsets across the globe.

Huga Barra, global vice president at Xiaomi, revealed this information through Twitter. He tweeted that the company has sold 110 million Redmi phones globally ever since the first handset was released in August 2013, this comes down to 1.21 units per second over three years.

Barra also revealed that majority of the people who are Redmi users are aged between 22-29 years, and happen to be very young and very active mobile internet/app users, they are particularly fond of games, books, news, tools, social media, and video apps.

He did not provide a region-wise breakdown of sales so it’s unclear how many of these units were sold in China and how many were sold in other markets. Barra did mention recently that the Redmi Note 3 sold more than one million units in India within six months, India now happens to be its second biggest market after China.

Xiaomi is now looking to rapidly expand its retail presence by quickly opening up a lot of brick-and-mortar stores in the coming months.
