According to Xiaomi, the Redmi Note 5 devices have sold five million units in the four months following their launch back on Valentine's day. For some perspective, it took the Redmi Note 4 six months to achieve this.

Xiaomi released the Redmi Note 5 earlier in the year. The device had the nigh-insurmountable task of filling the boots of a device that went on to be one of the most popular smartphones in the worlds during its heyday, the Redmi Note 4. It would appear that the Note 5 has done just that, as Xiaomi has announced that the Redmi Note 5 has sold five million units in the four months since its launch.

For some perspective, the much-lauded Redmi Note 4 hit this milestone only six months after launch, so the Redmi Note 5's performance is significantly more impressive. The device is sold as the Redmi Note 5 Pro in India but as the Redmi Note 5 in the rest of the world—a combination of the Snapdragon 636's power, a trending design, and excellent cameras making it a high-value choice in the mid-range.

So impressive has the device's performance on the market been that Xiaomi has so far failed to keep up with demand, leading to serious availability issues in various markets.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi is set to launch its new Mi 8 globally. The Mi 8 devices have already sold over a million units over the past three weeks or so, and the company will be hoping to push more sales. The Mi 8 expected to launch in India for under US$400, which is really just incredible value for money.
