The Redmi sub-brand that focuses mainly on bringing smartphones with an excellent specifications / price ratio has just announced on Weibo (the Chinese Twitter) that global sales of the Redmi Note line have exceeded 140 million units, with the Redmi series Note 8 which became the second best-selling in the first half of this 2020.
Redmi Note: Record series, sold over 140 million units while preparing for the new one
Redmi added that Note, as Redmi's flagship series, has always used aggressive pricing to allow more people to enjoy cutting-edge technology.
We remind, to those who have followed the Xiaomi and Redmi brands for a few years, that the Redmi Note series was born in March 2014 and at the time its official name was "Redmi Note", while the full name of the device was "Xiaomi Redmi Note".
On January 10 last year, the Redmi series announced its independence from Xiaomi, effectively becoming a brand in itself. This means that from that day the series is truly and only called "Notes". The first model released since the independence of the Redmi brand is the Note 7. Subsequently, Redmi launched Redmi Note 7 Pro, Redmi Note 8, Redmi Note 8 Pro, etc.

Going back to today, the brand announced that it has sold over 140 million Note devices. Among these, the Redmi Note 8 series is the second best-selling in the world in the H1 of 2020, with over 10 million units sold in just three months and over 40 million in total. Going even more specifically, we discover the Redmi Note 8 Pro is the most successful smartphone thanks to the incredible specifications / price ratio with its MediaTek Helio G90T as a chipset, 64MP main camera, support for 4K video and a decidedly affordable price.
In any case, today's release from Redmi is by no means accidental, but it is the beginning of the marketing campaign for the next Note series arriving in China in the coming weeks. If you follow us, you will already know that this series will be called “Note 9”, even if the hardware will be completely different from the one already launched in Europe.
