Xiaomi Redmi 3s Becomes the Highest Online Selling Smartphone in India With Record Sales of Over 4 Million

Xiaomi Redmi 3s is the new highest online selling smartphone in India. The company has just announced that the Redmi 3s has dethroned Redmi Note 3 to emerge as the best online selling smartphone in the country. Xiaomi’s Vice President Manu Kumar Jain has said that the company managed to sell over four million units of Redmi 3s in India online.

Xiaomi Redmi 3s

The Apple of China announced the Redmi 3s and Redmi 3s Prime in India back in August 2016. Which means they have sold over four million units in just nine months. It’s quite an achievement, we must say. Last year, Xiaomi said that the Redmi Note 3 was the best online selling smartphone with over 3.6 million devices sold in one year.

This has been the story of Xiaomi ever since its entry into the Indian market. The Redmi series of phones are immensely popular across all over the country. Also, the recently announced Redmi Note 4 and Redmi 4A are selling like hot cakes in the flash sales. Xiaomi managed to sell over one million Redmi Note 4’s in just 45 days, while the first sale of Redmi 4A on Amazon India saw 2,50,000 units being sold.

The Redmi series of phones were the principal reason behind Xiaomi’s one billion revenue in India last year. Well, it’s an excellent time for Xiaomi to announce this news as they will be launching the successor to Redmi 3s next week.

The Chinese company, on May 16, 2017, will be announcing the Redmi 4 and Redmi 4 Prime in India. The Redmi 4 has a 5-inch HD display, Snapdragon 430 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 13MP rear camera, and a 4100mAh battery. On the flip side, the Redmi 4 Prime features 5-inch Full HD display, Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera, and the same 4100mAh battery. These devices are expected to be priced below Rs. 10,000.


Following its success in the online space, Xiaomi seems to be planning to enter the offline market as well. Just a couple of days ago, Xiaomi opened its first Mi Home in India located in Bengaluru and is eyeing to open 100 Mi Homes in the next two years. The Redmi 3s was the first device from the company to have been sold offline as Xiaomi Redmi 3s Plus at Rs. 9,499. Do make a note that the four million count includes all the three variants of the phone – Redmi 3s, Redmi 3s Prime, and Redmi 3s Plus.

All this money donated by broke Indians will help China a lot with their One Belt One Road plan which violates India’s sovereignty by passing through PoK. Well done people, lol.

Bro….first criticize Indian govt for allowing chinese Brand in Indian market. If these brand will not allowed in India then people will buy only Samsung …micromax index etc. But i m not in support of overprice oppo or vivo or samsung…but brand like Mi,Oneplus or Motorola..we can buy good phone in less price. So peoles are buying Mi poducts b’coz they can get good specification.. not because they are helping China economy.

It’s a clever trap the Chinese have laid, not everyone can see it. Anyway, it’s always the poor, broke & greedy people who get the country in trouble. You must realize, whatever Pakistan does, it does on the behest & instructions of China (including killing our soldiers). China is clever enough to not fire even a shot, but shoots over Pakistan’s shoulders. Blood of your soldiers is on your hands.

Well said. People must avoid xiaomi, lava. micromax, oppo, vivo, g-five, meizu etc. Those who buy these handsets are compromising quality in the name of low price.

Note : Comment about iphone 7 plus blast before commenting about Note 7. Ok?.

Talking about Indians helping Chinese brands get stronger. Brand names get the real money, manufacturing not so much. Did America become a financial super power through manufacturing or through their global brands? Manufacturing is profitable only initially when economy is in growth stage.
