Xiaomi has sold over one million units of Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro smartphones in just one month of their launch in India, the company's India unit chief Manu Kumar Jain on Tuesday revealed. Part of Xiaomi's Redmi Note series, Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro's success isn't very surprising as traditionally pretty much all Redmi Note-series phones have sold well in the country. To recall, Xiaomi had launched the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro in mid-October and the phones first went on sale on October 21.
Jain announced the sales milestone achieved by the Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro phones on Twitter. Meanwhile, the company is getting ready for yet another Redmi Note 8 Pro flash sale that will take place on November 27. The Redmi Note 8 that had a flash sale today will be put on sale once again next week.
