The Redmi Note 5 series in India includes the standard Redmi Note 5 and the premium Redmi Note 5 Pro. Xiaomi, however, did not reveal which smartphone did better. “We believe it’s the fastest selling phone series in India to cross the 5 million mark in the given time across all platforms,” said Xiaomi in a press statement.

Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro back on February 14 in India. In the first sale itself, the company sold over 3 lakh units of both the smartphones. Earlier, Xiaomi sold both the handsets in flash sales, but later on, the Redmi Note 5 went on for open sale in the country. Xiaomi is still selling the Redmi Note 5 Pro in flash sale every week.

Last year, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 was the bestselling phone in India as the company sold ten million units within one year and five million units in the first six months. This year, the sales of the Redmi Note 5 series has surpassed five million within four months itself.
