Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 series sold more than 1 Million units in a month in India
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro are the latest additions to Xiaomi’s mid range portfolio. While the Redmi Note 7 is available in two variants: India and China/Global, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is available only in a single variant that will not be making its way out of India and China. The latest sales number from Xiaomi indicates that the Redmi Note 7 lineup is doing extremely well, as the company has surpassed 1 Million units sold in a month in the Indian region.

“We are delighted to be sharing yet another wonderful milestone achieved by our popular Redmi Note series of smartphones. It is truly humbling to see the love of our Mi Fans towards the new Redmi Note 7 series that have set themselves a class apart from their segment of smartphones. This inspires us even more to further ramp up the supply for our popular Redmi Note 7 series and help all our Mi Fans access it easily.”
One Million units sold may not sound as impressive on its own, but it becomes better when you put it into context. Xiaomi sold 11.7 Million units in Q3 2018 across its entire smartphone product range in India — this included several new and older smartphones and the period coincided with several Indian festivals. The Redmi Note 7 and Redmi Note 7 Pro on the other hand, have only had a month to perform. The 6GB RAM variant of the Redmi Note 7 Pro, which was the most powerful variant in the series and one of the most sought-after variants, only went on sale from today. Even within the duration of availability, the Redmi Note 7 lineup has remained difficult to purchase, as our own personal experience attests to the fact that the device goes out of stock in mere seconds of its sale page going live. As the situation stands, several potential customers are still trying to buy the phone with no success.
Our review of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 Pro hailed it as a “great hardware package on a budget“, noting that several of the phones shortcomings, like the numerous ads, are outweighed by its pros. We expect the sale numbers on the Redmi Note 7 series to climb even higher in the coming months. Hopefully, Xiaomi India can eventually move past the flash sale model for this device.
