Xiaomi has revealed that it has sold 1 million smartphones in India since its debut. The Chinese smartphone maker has surpassed the 1 million mark in mere five months since it entered the country.
“We’re celebrating 1 million devices sold in less than 5 months in India. Isn’t that awesome? Thank you Indian Mi fans for this incredible milestone! We’re here to stay,”
wrote Manu Kumar Jain, Head of Mi India, in a Facebook post.
Xiaomi entered India in July this year by launching Mi3 via Flipkart. It sold Redmi 1S and Redmi Note until it was banned from importing and selling its smartphones in the country owing to patent infringement claim from Ericsson. However, the ban is partially lifted by Delhi High Court till January 8th. The Redmi Note 4G will go on sale in India next week.
The Chinese smartphone maker became the third largest smartphone maker in the world in Q3, 2014 by selling a total of 17.3 million handsets.
