Earlier this month, Xiaomi introduced the Redmi Note 2 in China and went up for a flash sale in the region yesterday.
As with most Xiaomi’s flash sales, the Redmi Note 2 managed to sell a record-breaking 800,000 units in the first 12 hours which is yet another impressive achievement from the Chinese manufacturer.
The handset carries a very decent set of specifications at an extremely affordable price tag. There’s a 5.5-inch display sporting a resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 pixels and is powered by an octa-core MediaTek Helio X10 processor paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in storage. The handset also features a massive 3,020 mAh battery to make sure there’s enough juice for the handset.
Other features includes a 13MP main camera for photos and videos, a 5MP front-facing camera, dual SIM support, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and IR blaster and ships with the new MIUI 7 out of the box.
There’s no word about the availability of the handset in other markets where Xiaomi operates but we’ll update you as soon as we hear anything.
