Xiaomi Sold Over 1 Million Smartphones During Amazon And Flipkart Sales
Xiaomi had a festive couple of days during the Amazon and Flipkart sales. The Chinese tech giant said that it managed to sell over 1 million smartphones in India. Amazon’s Great Indian Festival Sale and Flipkart’s Big Billion Days Sale saw heavy discounts on smartphones and already mid-ranged phones became even more affordable.
Xiaomi managed to sell about 300 smartphones on an average every minute for two days. The company said it saw a significant increase in sales this festive season, compared to last year, where it took them about 18 days to sell one million smartphones.
Xiaomi said that the Redmi 4 was the highest selling smartphone on Flipkart during the sale and Xiaomi was the best-selling brand for both Amazon and Flipkart in the mobile category. Eight of the nine best-selling smartphones in the sale for both Amazon and Flipkart was again, Xiaomi products.
This achievement marks an industry first, and is a key milestone for Xiaomi India. Our careful planning has also ensured that high selling smartphones such as Redmi 4 and Redmi Note 4 are in stock throughout the festive sale. We are extremely thankful to all our Mi Fans for their amazing support, and will continue to work hard to constantly outdo ourselves as we have done on many occasions in the past
Xiaomi has been a dominant force in the budget smartphone category in the Indian market and selling 1 million smartphones albeit, heavy discounts is no mean feat. Xiaomi would want to translate the budget smartphone category success into flagship success as well. The Mi 6 was the last flagship smartphone Xiaomi released in India and the chances of Mi Mix 2 reaching the Indian shores look bleak. Recent reports of the Mi 7 featuring wireless charging have surfaced and its launch in India with Xiaomi’s typical aggressive pricing might make it a success in India.
