Xiaomi is continuing to surprise folks at every turn as the company has released modest or superb devices on a regular basis, with little to no issues. The latest example of this comes via the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, which launched in China back in October before launching in India back in early December.
Today, the company announced that the Redmi 5A was sold to more than 1 million customers in India in just one month. These are pretty impressive numbers from a small-ish company who is looking to leave its mark on the world, one device at a time.
What may help Xiaomi continue to dominate certain markets are its prices for the array of devices being offered. For example, the base model Xiaomi Redmi 5A with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage is priced at INR4,999, which converts to about $79. These prices are cheaper than just about any other major contender on the market, and it seems Xioami has found its niche.
Hopefully, we’ll begin seeing a more concerted effort from Xiaomi in the near future to hopefully make a serious push here in the US. In the meantime, we’ll be left to use awesome budget options such as the Honor 7X and Moto Z2 Play.
