As a part of the Big Billion Days sale and Great Indian sale, Xiaomi managed to sell over 1 million smartphones in just 48 hours. This means that Amazon and Flipkart were selling over 300 smartphones per minute on average, which is just impressive.
This is a big improvement by the Chinese company, who sold the same number of smartphone last year in 18 days. Among all the Xiaomi smartphones, Redmi Note 4 was the most purchased unit on Flipkart
“We are extremely proud to be sharing this milestone with our fans, partners and employees. More than six months of rigorous planning and hard work has helped us set a new benchmark in the industry and within Xiaomi. Last year we sold more than a million smartphones within 18 days, and this year we were able to achieve a similar number within 48 hours. Based on what we know, no other brand has ever achieved this in India,” said Raghu Reddy, Head of Online Sales, Xiaomi India.
