Xiaomi celebrates Redmi Note series sales milestone that shows its dominance in the mid-range segment
Xiaomi has become almost synonymous with value for money, and it’s no surprise that the company’s budget and mid-range offerings are consistently some of the best selling devices in the world. Xiaomi has now announced that it has sold 100 million Redmi Note series phones, with 20 million of those being sales of the Redmi Note 7.
The Redmi Note 7 was the first device to be sold under the new Redmi sub-brand. It was launched about nine months ago, so it’s impressive that 20 million units have already been sold. That figure, of course, accounts for the Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro, although we expect the regular Note 7 to have sold the lion's share, considering the lackluster availability of the Pro model.
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note series has dominated the mid-range series for years, and that’s likely due to the successes of the Redmi Note 3 and its successor, the Redmi Note 4. The Redmi Note 5 was an even more attractive offering, showing Xiaomi’s willingness to constantly improve on the quality of devices in the series.
The company released the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro weeks ago and both devices, as is customary with products in the series, offer excellent value for money, regardless of the fact that they may not be substantial upgrades over their predecessors.
