Xiaomi sold 100k of its new Redmi notes in just 34 minutes

When we think of cheap Android devices, Xiaomi is the first thing that comes to our mind but at the same time they dont skip on high-end hardware or quality. Getting good hardware devices at low prices in today's world is like a gift to all and this explains why the consumers literally attack the phones and gobble them down when they are released by Xiaomi. This also helps the company to set up pretty impressive sales records. And we have the Xiaomi Redmi Note which follows the same low cost high quality strategy of the company. And if you are looking forward to being really surprised then how about knowing that the company managed to sell 100,000 units of the device in only 34 minutes.

However, the more surprising was the 100k sale of their Hongmi in November 2013 within a shocking 4 minutes. Going back to the Redmi, it merely costs $161 and still features some of the most impressive specs there are out there in the mobile market. It has a 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280. The phone is powered by a 1.7GHz octa-core chipset, has 2 GB for its RAM and also features an impressive 16 GB for the internal storage. The camera setup includes a main 13 MP camera and runs the the Android 4.2.2. All this for only the price of $161.

For those who wouls till prefer to pay less and have an even lower priced phone, the company took care by launching another cheaper version of the same phone with lower end specs. This one only costs about $129 and has a few changes in the specs for instance the 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal memory.
