Xiaomi India CEO, Manu Kumar Jain has revealed that his company has achieved yet another milestone in India by selling over 4 million smartphones during the “Diwali with Mi” sales promotion. The CEO made the announcement on a post shared on Twitter and Facebook. The post detailed that the Diwali sales ran from September 20 to October 19.
The figure is a collation of all the sales across various platforms like Flipkart where the Flipkart Big Billion Day was held during the period of the Diwali promotions. Amazon also held the Amazon Great Indian Festival sales and on both online channels, Xiaomi is said to have emerged as the number 1 smartphone brand. Manu Jain also disclosed that the figures included those from mi.com and other offline retail channels. On Xiaomi’s own website, it sold over 1 million products.

The recent disclosure is a reflection of Xiaomi’s growing popularity in India. We’ll have to see how these figures translate into better standings for the tech giant on the global ranking. But it would no doubt move the company up the ladder when the final ranking is released at the end of the year. The Diwali sales details also revealed that the Redmi Note 4 was the highest selling smartphone during Flipkart’s Big Billion Day Sale. The Redmi Note 4 has proven to be a very successful model in India despite not being as successful as the Redmi Note 3 in China. The model contributed significantly to the overall sales figure. IDC reports that the Redmi Note 4 is also India’s top-selling smartphone for three consecutive.
