The company announced the Redmi 4 in India last month and has now confirmed that sales have surpassed 1 million units within 30 days. The company had sold over 2.5 lakh units of the Redmi 4 during the first sale held on May 23.
Xiaomi has been breaking records of fastest smartphone to reach 1 million sales mark in India with its latest smartphones. The Redmi Note 4 took only 45 days to reach 1 million sales mark and now the Redmi 4 has reached that number in fewer days. Manu Jain, Xiaomi VP and India Managing Director tweeted that Redmi 4 has gone one step ahead of Redmi Note 4.
