Xiaomi seems to be riding high on the success of its Redmi Note 3 smartphone, which was launched in March, this year. The company claims that the device has touched a new sales mark and is now the best-selling smartphone in India.
As per a tweet by Xiaomi, Around 2.3 million units of the Redmi Note 3 have been sold to date. Xiaomi claims that Indian sales of the Redmi Note 3 averaged one sale per 7 seconds. Last month, Xiaomi announced that it had shipped 1.75 million units of the Redmi Note 3 in a period of five months.
To commemorate the sales mark achieved by the Redmi Note 3, Xiaomi is organizing an online contest (game); wherein participants can win Redmi Note 3 or coupons. The game would require players to type the auto-generated sentences in 7 seconds or less. Each player would get three chances to win till Thursday. On a funny note, the nature of the game looks doable for writers or keyboarders (we stand a fair chance). For the ones who are not able to win in the three attempts, you can earn grace chances by sharing Xiaomi’s post on Facebook. With this method, users can receive up to 9 chances each day until Thursday.
