Xiaomi Sells 1 Million Redmi 5A Units In A Month In India

As the months pass, Xiaomi continues to go from strength to strength in India. The company’s budget smartphones have been well received by the price conscious Indian populace. And it looks that, the Chinese brand’s dominance will continue. Xiaomi India head, Manu Kumar Jain, tweeted yesterday that they’ve sold more than 1 million Redmi 5A units in India in 1 month.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A

Xiaomi’s Redmi 5A launched on December 7, 2017, is an entry-level phone, a successor to the Redmi 4A. It was launched at a rock bottom price of Rs 5,999 (2 GB). Further, there was a straightforward discount of Rs 1,000 for the first 5 million buyers. At that price, it was an impulse buy for many. Moreover, the Indian market lacked proper competition in that price segment, so it might have made things easier for Xiaomi. The handset quickly got sold out in the first and subsequent flash sales held on online portals.

Quickly going through its hardware check-up, the “Desh ka Smartphone” is a polycarbonate body device with a 5-inch HD display, a Snapdragon 425 SoC, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It comes with MIUI 9 baked in with Android Nougat. A pretty basic camera setup of 13 MP at the back with f/2.2 aperture and LED flash sits at the back. Also, the selfie camera is a 5 MP f/2.0 aperture lens. You don’t get a fingerprint sensor with this device. However, you do get hybrid dual SIM slot, 4G VoLTE and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n.

Moreover, Xiaomi is yet to launch the Redmi 5/5 Plus in India, but whenever that happens, we expect these devices to sell very well as well in the country.
