Xiaomi’s latest phone, the Redmi Note 2, has hit over 800,000 sales in the first 12 hours. After all, $125 for an above-the-fold offering isn’t a bad deal.
The handset went up for sale over the weekend in China, breaking its previous sales records in its home market.
The handset encloses a 5.5-inch screen, MediaTek X10 Helio processor, 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear (and 5-megapixel front) camera, and a 30,60mAh battery. The attention grabber in the Redmi Note 2 is its MediaTek X10 Helio – the same processor that powers HTC’s One M9+.
The Redmi Note 2 is offered in 16GB and 32GB versions. That said, the 32GB model is dubbed the Redmi Note 2 Prime. There’s still no word from Xiaomi on the international launch of the Redmi Note 2.
