Redmi Note 11T Pro series nets Xiaomi over US$65 million in first hour of sales
Xiaomi launched new mid-range phones last week in China, with the Redmi Note 11T Pro and Note 11T Pro Plus debuting as a performance-focused refresh of the Redmi Note 11 series that launched in October last year. As expected, it appears the new phones are performing quite well on the market.
As revealed by Lu Weibing, General Manager of Redmi, on Weibo hours ago, the company sold over 270,000 units of the new Redmi Note 11T Pro phones in just an hour when they went on sale. Seeing as the cheapest Redmi Note 11T Pro phone costs CNY 1699, that's a guaranteed CNY 458.7 million (US$68.7 million), with that number potentially rising a lot higher.
While that may seem impressive, it's nowhere near the figures Xiaomi has reported from previous sales. For some perspective, the company sold over US$150 million worth of the Redmi K50 phones in just five minutes a few months ago. The flagship Xiaomi 12 series made over twice that number in five minutes as well at the start of the year. Of course, those phones also cost a lot more than the mid-range Redmi Note 11T Pro models.
