Xiaomi is one of the well-known Chinese smartphone makers in the whole world. Just recently, Xiaomi's Redmi Note 4 went on sale last Friday via Mi.com at exactly 12:00 PM. Surprisingly, just within few moments, all units of the smartphone device has gone out-of-stock.
Xiaomi Wants To Become The Country’s Largest Smartphone Firm
According to The Economic Times, Xiaomi targets to become the country’s biggest smartphone firm within the range of five years. As reported, the Chinese smartphone maker doubled its sales in India last year to surpass the $1 billion target or approximately 6,700 crore in revenues. “I would want Xiaomi to become number one in overall smartphone sales volume perspective in India in 3-5 years,” said Xiaomi India head Manu Jain in an interview.
Currently, Xiaomi has a manufacturing plant along with Foxconn Technology Group at Sri City in Andhra Pradesh. “We are looking to open one or two new factories with similar capacities to double or triple our capacities either at Sri City itself or elsewhere in the country with Foxconn,” Jain said. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 has become one of the best-selling smartphones online in the country with a total of 3.6 million units sold in just 10 months. And now, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is taking its time to shine.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Goes Out-Of-Stock
Jain also said Xiaomi hopes that the sales volume of the Redmi Note 4 this year will be double that of Redmi Note 3 last year. This means that the sales of the Redmi Note 4 units should be at least 7 million. Within just two and a half years of its India foray, the firm has become the leader in the online smartphone industry in the country with 30 percent market share in the quarter ended December.
Xiaomi has revealed the Redmi Note 4 this year with variants of Gold, Grey and Silver color. The new Matte Black color variant for the smartphone is said to come very soon. The Redmi Note 4 model was launched in China back in August 2016 and according to The TeCake, Xiaomi device went on its first-ever sale on Friday via Mi.com at 12:00 pm. Just a few moments later, all the units of the handset have gone out-of-stock, as reported by the online store.
The unique selling point of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is its metal build case with deca-core system-on-a-chip (SoC), though the company has also started another variant in the country. It bears a fingerprint scanner on the rear panel. The Indian version is also expected to be in the designs. Aside from that, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has also acquired a 13-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus (PDAF), a f/2.0 aperture and dual-tone LED flash.
The 5-megapixel front camera of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has an 85-degree wide-angle lens. It also supports storage via microSD card up to 128GB in a hybrid dual-SIM card configuration. Apart from the fingerprint scanner, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has also housed an infrared sensor.
