The Redmi K30S may already be a success as Xiaomi records over US$34 million worth of sales in just one minute
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.
