Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, after becoming the fastest to reach 1 million units, has now reached another milestone. Xiaomi claims that it sold 5 million Redmi Note 4 units in six months. The company in a release claimed that it sold 5 million units of its Redmi Note 4 (Review) within six months of launch between a period of January 23 to July 23 this year. In comparison, the Redmi 3S took 9 months to hit the 4 million mark, according to data shared by the Chinese brand. Earlier this year, market research firm International Data Corporation (IDC) claimed that Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4 was the highest shipped smartphone in Q1 this year.
To commemorate the milestone, Xiaomi has created what it calls the world’s largest grain mosaic art spread across an area of 6,000 square feet at Thyagraj Stadium, New Delhi. It will be using the grain to feed 5 lakh hungry people on this Independence Day, as part of company’s initiative to give back to the community.
Manu Kumar Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi India, confirming the news, said in a statement, “Mi Fans are at the core of our business. Thanks to their love and support, we have sold 5 Million units of Redmi Note 4 – India’s No. 1 selling smartphone. We are celebrating this occasion by giving back to the community. The grains used to create world’s largest mosaic will help feed 500,000 underprivileged people on this Independence day.”
