Xiaomi, popularly known as the Apple of China has announced that it recently achieved the milestone of having sold 1 million smartphones in India. Despite its flash sale model and standing tiff with the High Courts in India, Xiaomi has largely made a very positive impact on the phone market. With its competitive pricing, Xiaomi has forced some of the bigger OEMs to look and revise their pricing. No wonder that because of extremely affordable prices of devices, Xiaomi has been able to hit the 1 million number with an age of just about 6 months in India.
Manu Jain, the Head of Operations of Xiaomi in India tweeted that the milestone was crossed in December and also thanked everyone for the courtesy sake.
Xiaomi entered Indian market in July and since then has launched three devices in India, which includes the Mi3, RedMi Note and the Redmi 1s. The devices have been kept exclusive to Flipkart and repeatedly have been sold out. Recently, after the High Court ban was uplifted from Xiaomi, the RedMi Note with Snapdragon 400 SoC had gone on sale and 50,000 devices were sold out in minutes. Despite a rather destructive model of creating demand in excess with limited supply, Xiaomi has become one of the most popular mobile brands in India, which is a massive testament to its products.
