Xiaomi recently launched its new device in the Redmi Note series and has managed to sell a whopping 250,000 devices in under 10 minutes on the first day of its sale on Flipkart and Mi.com.
Last year, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, the predecessor of the latest Note device sold over 3.6 million units making it the highest selling online device in the country.
The company hopes to replicate that success and sell a larger number of their Note 4 devices in 2017.
Redmi Note 4 was launched last week at an event in New Delhi and if its sale number on the first day are something to go by, the company might already be on its way to breaking previous year’s record set by Note 4’s predecessor.
According to the company, the online sale on Flipkart and MI’s official website has gone on to put a record-breaking performance on the day of its sale as the company claims it to be the biggest online sale ever.

The Redmi Note 4 sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC, which is an octa-core unit which clocks at 2.0 GHz. The device is backed by a 4100mAh battery, that is big enough to supply juice to the device for hours on end.
