Xiaomi continues to make rapid progress in India as indicated by the company’s smartphone sales record in the Asian country. Recently, it was revealed that Xiaomi is the most preferred brand in India, overtaking Apple and Samsung to the top spot. That preference has reflected in the sales of the Xiaomi Redmi 4 which was launched in India recently. Xiaomi India has now revealed that the company sold over a million Redmi 4 units in just 30 days. This revelation was made by Manu Jain, Xiaomi India’s Managing Director via his Twitter handle.
If we are to trace the history of Xiaomi products in India, then it will be better understood why these sales figures are encouraging. Just a few months back, the Redmi Note 4 went up on sales and the product sales crossed 1 million units in 45 days. The number of days needed to surpass the 1 million mark has further shrunken which further shows the fast growing popularity of the Xiaomi brand.
