When Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note 2 phablet in the market on Aug 13, we knew the phone was going to sell well. After all, it had one of the best specs to price ratio in a smartphone that we have seen lately. No other phone came with the powerful Helio X10 MT6795 64-bit octa-core chip in just 799 Yuan ($125). So, the Redmi Note 2 flash sale was destined to be successful.
Yesterday, the company had its first Redmi Note 2 flash sale and guess what, it managed to sell over 800,000 units of this affordable device within just 12 hours! Yes, the Redmi Note 2 turned out to be yet another successful Xiaomi product, and we believe the numbers are only going to increase in the coming flash sales.
The Redmi Note 2 comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display with Helio X10 clocked at 2.2Ghz and 2GB of RAM. There are two storage versions, 16GB and 32GB. At the back, there will be a 13MP camera with PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) and LED flash and up front, there is a 5MP shooter. The phone comes with a large 3060mAh battery, which can charge up to 60% in 30 minutes, thanks to Quick Charge 2.0.
Overall, the Redmi Note 2 is one of the best cheap handsets in the market right now. The only problem is the lack of availability of the device outside of China. But you can anytime purchase the phone from reputed sellers like OPPOMART or GizTop for a slight premium.
