Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi managed to sell over 1 million smartphones in 48 hours during online festive sales in India, carried out by retailers Flipkart and Amazon. If you break it down, that’s 300 smartphones per minute on average.
That’s an achievement of sorts for Xiaomi, given that last year the 1 million figure was crossed after 18 days. “This achievement marks an industry first, and is a key milestone for Xiaomi India,” the company said.
The Redmi Note 4 was the top seller smartphone as far as Flipkart’s Big Billion Day Sale is concerned, while of all the smartphones sold by Amazon, an overwhelming majority were Xiaomi devices. This made Xiaomi the top smartphone brand for both sales.
