Chinese manufacturer, Redmi, has today announced that its maiden series has sold over 20 million units. This smartphone series is the most sort-after series in India and has sold over 5 million units in the second-largest smartphone market.
Redmi needed only seven months to achieve this feat. The first smartphone in this series, Redmi Note 7 was released on January 2019. Its major selling point is its 48MP Sony IMX586 main camera. This makes it the first Redmi phone to use a 48MP sensor. One month later, the company also released the Pro model of this series which also uses a 48MP sensor.
