Xiaomi unveiled the Redmi Note 6 Pro a while ago, and the device finally went on sale in India over the weekend. Of course, Xiaomi’s sales model in India is focused on flash sales in an attempt to create nigh-artificial demand. After the end of the first of such sales, the company announced that over 600,000 units of the mid-range phone were sold.

600,000 units is an impressive figure, although the nature of Xiaomi sales makes that figure a bit flawed. Without a flash sale, sales would almost definitely have been more spread out, and it may have taken a week for 600,000 units to be sold. Shenanigans notwithstanding, it’s still an impressive figure, and the fact that it can even be downplayed shows how big Xiaomi has gotten, especially considering the fact that devices like the Google Pixel phones may not push such numbers across their sales lifetimes.

The Redmi Note 6 Pro is mostly considered to be an incremental upgrade over the Redmi Note 5 Pro, with the major differences being the addition of a notch and an extra selfie camera. According to our tests, though, the Redmi Note 6 Pro shows improved battery, connectivity, and storage performance, and a better display—all of which are things that can’t be quantified without specific tests. As such, it’s no surprise that public opinion has the Note 6 Pro penned down as a non-upgrade from the Note 5 Pro.

The next flash sale is scheduled for November 28.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
