Thanks to Flipkart platform, Xiaomi has sold out 75,000 units of its latest Redmi Note smartphones prices Rs.8999 each with features receiving positive reviews amid intense competition from rivals like Samsung and Apple brewing in the side.
Last week’s flash sale on December 2 saw 50,000 Redmi Note units sold out in just 6 seconds, with the Xiaomi honcho Hugo Barra hurrriedly sent out a tweet announcing it.
The Redmi Note phablet priced Rs.8,999, comes with dual-SIM support, has a 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MTK6592 SoC featuring a Mali-450MP4 GPU, though on flip-side of it is that it runs on old Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 slightly tweaked for Xiaomi’s MIUI. But Xiaomi has promised to facilitate updates to the latest Android 5 Lollipop soon.
Powered by a 1.7GHz octa-core MediaTek MTK6592 SoC, it is coupled with a Mali-450MP4 GPU and 2GB of RAM, with a 5.5-inch 720×1280-pixel IPS LCD display screen. Its rear camera sports a 13-megapixel autofocus lens with LED flash, while the front 5-megapixel camera is good for selfies, says the company. On memory, it has 8GB in-built storage extendable up to 32GB with a microSD card slot.
Other features of the Redmi Note include GPRS/ EDGE, 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct and hotspot functions, Bluetooth 4.0, a Micro-USB port with OTG support, and A-GPS, while its 3100mAh battery is ahead of other rivals in the same range.
From next week, Xiaomi will launch its Redmi Note 4G LTE phablet in India, priced at Rs. 9,999 sporting a 3GB RAM and also available on Airtel stores with pre-registration in five major cities, including Hyderabad.
