Xiaomi boasted a new achievement for the Redmi K40 and Redmi K40 Pro smartphone series, which debuted in China in early March.
Xiaomi previously reported that the first batch of 300,000 Redmi K40 units sold out in just 5 minutes. The next major milestone has now been announced, with a million units sold in the series. It took the company less than a month from the start of sales – only 23 days.
Note that so far only Redmi K40 and K40 Pro have been sold in China. And it turned out to be quite difficult to buy them. As the President of Xiaomi Group China and CEO of Redmi Lu Weibing explained, the demand for smartphones significantly exceeds the supply, but Redmi keeps the price at its original level, despite the global shortage of chips.
Sales of the oldest model in the series, the Redmi K40 Pro +, also began in China today. It starts at $ 430 and features a Samsung AMOLED screen, Snapdragon 888 and 108MP camera.
On the international market, Redmi K40 is presented under the name Poco F3 and its sales will only begin in the next few days.
