It doesn’t look like we’ve written much – or indeed anything – about the Xiaomi Redmi Note until now, but with good reason: the chances of it being released here are somewhere between none and even more none.
But still, it’s interesting to hear that the Xiaomi Redmi Note has gone and sold a slightly silly 10,000 units in one second.
These eastern flash sales are increasingly common, adopting a technique called “hunger marketing”. Essentially the manufacturer does a grand job of talking up a phone, before releasing a limited number of units on the cyberweb.
Inevitably the sales will leave thousands feeling disappointed, but heck, these manufacturers must know what they’re doing.
In March this year, the Xiaomi Redmi Note shifted 100,000 units in 34 minutes in China, and here it’s Taiwanese consumers going Redmi Note crazy, paying 4,999 TWD (about £100) a pop. Again: 10,000 sales in one second.
For the record, Xiaomi Redmi Note specs include a 5.5in 720p display, octo-core MediaTek processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter, and 3,200mAh battery. Not bad for a hundred quid.
