Chinese handset maker Xiaomi on Friday announced that it sold six lakh units of Redmi Note 6 Pro smartphone during its first Black Friday sale on e-commerce site Flipkart and its own platform Mi.com. As expected, several consumers jumped on the e-commerce portals to purchase the handset owing to its slightly discounted price tag. The smartphone was launched for Rs 13,999 for the 4GB+64GB and Rs 15,999 for the 6GB+64GB variants. However, as part of the sale, the device is available for Rs 12,999 for the 4GB + 64GB variant and Rs 14,999 for the 6GB + 64GB variant — with a sale price drop of Rs 1,000 respectively — only today, the company said in a statement.
“Mi Fans! We had 600,000+ units of ‘Quad Camera all-rounder’ for 1st sale. Went out of stock in mins on @Flipkart & http://Mi.com! If you did not manage to buy one, don’t worry. We are getting more stock. Next sale @3pm today,” tweeted Manu Kumar Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi Global and Managing Director, Xiaomi India.
The company announced a Black Friday sale on the device, after its launch in India. For the unaware, the Redmi Note 6 Pro comes with a 6.26-inch FHD+ IPS display, 20MP+2MP AI dual camera on the front and a 12MP+5MP AI dual camera setup on the rear.
