Xiaomi finally releases some sales statistics for the Redmi Note 10 lineup
Xiaomi released the Redmi Note 10 series in March. The company first debuted the first phones in India, before premiering the lineup for the global market shortly after. That may have proven to be a solid move, in light of recent information.
In a tweet earlier today, Manu Kumar Jain, Global VP of Xiaomi and MD of Xiaomi India, announced that the company had sold 500 Crore worth of the Redmi Note 10 series, in just two weeks after launch. The fact that the figure is in Indian currency heavily implies that the statistic is only for the Indian market. These do not reflect global sales numbers, which should be a lot higher.
500 Crore converts into right around US$68 million. That's a solid commercial performance on paper, but pales in comparison to things we've seen in the past. The OnePlus 9 series earned over US$46 million in China in just 10 seconds, for example. Xiaomi's own Mi 11 made over US$600 million in sales in just three weeks in China. That is also, perhaps, an indication of just how bonkers the Chinese market is, in comparison to the Indian market.
Considering how even the cheapest Redmi Note 10 device was priced at Rs 11,999, this sales figure implies Xiaomi sold a maximum of just over 400,000 units of the Redmi Note 10 series in its first two weeks. Not great, but not terrible either.
