Just three months after the phones were launched, Xiaomi has confirmed that it has sold ten million units of the Redmi Note 8 series. That is, the Redmi Note 8 and Note 8 Pro. This means that the Note 8 phones are actually outselling the Redmi Note 7 phones, which is incredible considering the phones’ relatively lackluster reception by the enthusiast community.

Xiaomi released the Redmi Note 8 phones back in August, as direct successors to the incredibly successful Redmi Note 7 phones. While some may claim the Redmi Note 8 series to be less attractive than their predecessors, sales have been impressive, as the company has confirmed that it’s sold 10 million Redmi Note 8 series units so far.

The Redmi Note 7 series had sold 20 million units by August, seven months or so after launch. It hit the 10-million milestone in May, four months after release. The Redmi Note 8 series doing 10 million in just three months means that it’s actually outselling the Redmi Note 7 phones, which is impressive no matter how you look at it.

Most enthusiasts may have panned the Redmi Note 8 for featuring a slightly weaker SoC than the Redmi Note 7—Snapdragon 665 versus Snapdragon 660. The fact that the Redmi Note 8 Pro features a MediaTek SoC doesn’t help matters much either. Both facts considered, it’s almost incredible that the Note 8 phones are outselling the Note 7 duo. It’s important to note that Xiaomi’s supply chain for the Note 8 has been a lot more efficient than it was for the Note 7 phones, so that has likely also played a part in this feat.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
