Xiaomi’s best selling smartphone has reached a new milestone with 10 million devices sold. The budget-smartphone achieved this landmark within just nine months since it launched according to IDC’s monthly smartphone tracker for August 2018. The company also claims that the Redmi 5A is the only smartphone in India to have retained the number one position and has continued its dominance in the budget segment.
Commenting on this occasion, Raghu Reddy, Head of Categories and Online Sales at Xiaomi said, “These remarkable milestones are the result of the immense love and admiration from our millions of Mi Fans and customers. Redmi 5A is one of our blockbuster smartphone products due to the amazing features it offers coupled with great quality and truly honest pricing, which makes it an undebatable choice in its category and with the recently launched Redmi 6A we have made it even better. Xiaomi as a brand will continue to bring innovative products of great quality with best specs and ensure that it is accessible to all consumers across India.”
Xiaomi is still selling the smartphone in India despite having launched the successor Redmi 6A last month. Both smartphones share a price point of Rs 5,999 for the 2GB RAM variant. The Xiaomi Redmi 5A has two variants, one that comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage priced at Rs 5,999, and the other one with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage priced at Rs 6,999.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A flaunts a 5-inch HD display that features resolution of 1280×720 pixels, and an aspect ratio of 16:9. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset, and the internal storage is expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card.
