Earlier today, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Xiaomi, had launched the Redmi K30 Pro smartphone in China, which is an advanced variant of the Redmi K30 and a successor to the Redmi K20 Pro. However, that is not the only major news from the manufacturer for today. Now, the brand has announced on the Chinese social media platform, Weibo, that its Redmi K20 series, which includes two smartphones, the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro, has reached a 5 million sales milestone.
The Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro made their debut in China on 28th May. So, it hasn’t even been a year since Xiaomi launched the Redmi K20 series and it has already been sold more than 5 million units. Sure, this number might not seem big when you consider that Xiaomi had managed to sell around 10 million units of the Redmi Note 7 Pro in just six months. However, the Redmi Note 7 Pro is an entry-level device, the market for which is enormous. The Redmi K20 series smartphones, on the other hand, fall in the mid-range price category, the market for which is much smaller. So, the fact that the brand has managed to sell 5 million units of the Redmi K20 series is a big achievement.
The Story of Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro in The Indian Market
The Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 were launched in the Indian market on 17th July. Both the smartphones are currently on sale in the country through Xiaomi’s official online store, Flipkart, Amazon, and through offline retail stores. The Redmi K20 is available in the Indian market in 6GB RAM + 64GB variant, which costs INR 19,999, and 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, which costs INR 22,999. The Redmi K20 Pro is also available in India in two variants; the base version of the smartphone has 6GB RAM + 128GB storage and it costs INR 23,999, and the top-end version has 8GB RAM + 256GB storage and this one is priced at INR 27,999. The prices of these smartphones are set to drop once the brand launches the Redmi K30 series in the Indian market.
