The new Redmi Note 7 is a massive success in its domestic market. The phone was initially launched in January and arrived for its first flash sale two weeks ago. The sub-brand has been releasing 100,000 units at a time, and they always sold out in an amazingly short amount of time. The last flash sale happened this morning, and another batch was gone, this time for 10 minutes 56 seconds, the company boasted.
The Redmi Note 7 is the first device of the subsidiary after it separated as a new brand. The phone is such a hit thanks to its Snapdragon 660 chipset, 6.3 notched Full HD+ screen and 48 MP camera with a Samsung ISOCELL sensor. There is also MIUI 10, based on Android Pie, and Quick Charge 4 compatibility that can be utilized with a proper charging block.
The specs are not the only reason for the successful sales, the price also has its say. The 3/32 GB variant is CNY999 (about $150), while the most powerful 6/64 GB option is CNY1,399 (around $210), which is way cheaper than any other smartphone with similar specs on the market. The phone is yet to appear outside of China, but according to an announcement on Twitter from last week, it is bound to hit India soon.
