Xiaomi released the Redmi K30S last week. The phone, essentially a cheaper, rebranded Mi 10T, went on sale yesterday, with Xiaomi recording 100,000 purchases in just one minute. That translates into over US$34 million of sales, at the listed discount base price tag of CNY 2,299 (US$343).

Xiaomi launched the Redmi K30S last week as a rebranded Mi 10T for secondary markets, starting with its home market of China. In typical Xiaomi fashion, the phone went on sale yesterday and performed exceedingly well.

In a post shared by the official Redmi account on Weibo, the company announced that it sold 100,000 units of the Redmi K30s in just one minute. Those are pretty normal launch-day sales for Xiaomi nowadays, as the company recorded similar numbers with the Redmi K30 Ultra a few months ago. It's a strong testament to the company's growth, however—growth that saw it outsell Apple to become the best-selling smartphone brand in Q3 2020.

While the Redmi K30S carries an MSRP of CNY 2,599 (US$388), the company is currently selling the phone with a CNY 300 discount, which leaves the price tag at a more attainable CNY 2,299 (US$343). That's for the base model, though, so it's logical to conclude that Xiaomi's made at least US$34 million of sales from the Redmi K30S yesterday.

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.
