Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is known for its budget ranged handsets like the Redmi and the recently launched Redmi Note. Thanks to low-cost devices like these, the sales volume of the company is pretty high. And according to new figures published by the company, it has sold over 11 million smartphones in 2014 already, which is a remarkable feat considering that we’re only three months into the year.

Xiaomi Redmi Note

Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has reportedly sold over 100,000 units of its ultra-affordable Redmi Note handset within 34 minutes. While this is not a major feat in comparison to the first gen Redmi, which sold the same amount within four minutes, it’s still something noteworthy for the manufacturer, at least by international standards.

HTC may have just announced a stunning new flagship in the One M8, but the Taiwanese company actually vowed to place a greater focus on more affordable midrange offerings for 2014.
