The Chinese manufacturer had already sold more than 2 million in its first month and cites its automated production plants for keeping prices low.

Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has announced via Weibo that the Redmi Note 2 smartphone is the current bestseller in China where it retails for just 800 Yuan (~110 Euros). Considering that it also carries a 5.5-inch FHD display, the smartphone can almost be considered a steal.

We reported early last month that the Redmi Note 2 had sold over 2 million units in China. Now, Lei is expecting to reach 10 million by year's end.

When questioned how Xiaomi is able to offer the Redmi Note 2 at such a low price and how it intends to meet Holiday demand, Lei credited the company's ultra-modern and automated production plants that are able to operate around the clock. Thus, high production capacity is almost guaranteed for the Redmi Note 2 and possibly future Xiaomi devices as well.

The Chinese company recently revealed the Mi 4C smartphone and is expected to launch its first laptops by early 2016.
