Xiaomi temporarily slashes Redmi K30 price tag by up to $85 in celebration of impressive sales landmark
Xiaomi launched the Redmi K30 4G and Redmi K30 5G back in December. The phones were widely seen as incremental upgrades on the very positively-received Redmi K20. It would appear that sales have been decent at the very least, however, with Xiaomi announcing that the Redmi K30 phones have reached a significant sales landmark.
A few hours ago on Weibo, Xiaomi announced that it has sold three million Redmi K30 units domestically. The phones were released seven months ago. Global sales numbers were not revealed, but they're likely to be substantial. In celebration of the achievement, Xiaomi is slashing some money off the price of the Redmi K30 4G. It's important to note that this doesn't affect the Snapdragon 765G-powered Redmi K30 5G.
Between now and July 12, Xiaomi will sell the 6/128 GB model of the Redmi K30 4G at CNY 1,399 (US$200) and the 8/128 GB at CNY 1,599 (US$227). The phones cost CNY 1,899 (US$270) and CNY 2,199 (US$313) respectively at launch. That represents a CNY 500 (US$70) and CNY 600 (US$85) discount across the two models.
