Xiaomi has sold more than 30 million units of Redmi Note 8 series. Under normal circumstances, this may not appear as big news, and these numbers might seem meager. But we must remember that due to the COVID-19 crisis, sales have gone down drastically in the past 4 months. Therefore, managing to sell such a number of units in less than a year is an encouraging sign for a company that has lost a huge share recently in the home market. This conveys that the market is not dead yet, and there is room for recovery.
The number includes Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro into account. So, this is a combined figure for the Note 8 series. Now let us take a look at what Xiaomi did right to reach such a milestone in such difficult times.

Redmi Note 8 is a good phone with big battery life. Its 6.3-inch display, although not very big, is still decent compliant to its design. The phone has a good camera quality, which may not be perfect yet. But comparing its low price point, it is a good bargain, which you may find quite rarely. Its price ranges from PKR 29,999 for 4GB/64GB to PKR 34,999 for 4GB/128 GB, which makes it clear that sticking to such a reasonable price point is a major contributing factor to its sales.

A Better yet more expensive mobile phone Redmi Note 8 Pro has all the right things going for it. It has a bigger battery as compared to Note 8, its RAM/ROM capabilities are better. Moreover, its camera quality is leagues above its little brother. Easy to say Redmi Note 8 Pro earns the “Pro” in its name. Its price is slightly above Note 8 with an average model (6GB/128GB) being sold for PRK 43,350 whereas, 6GB/64Gb model sells for about PKR 39,250.

Only time will tell if Note 9 manages to beat the record held by Redmi Note 8.
