Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Redmi 2A sales hit 13 million units combined

Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Redmi 2A sales hit 13 million units combined
On his Weibo page today (for the uninitiated, this is a social media website in China), Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun celebrated the fact that combined sales of the Xiaomi Redmi 2 and Xiaomi Redmi 2A have hit 13 million in their first five months. The low-priced duo together became the sixth Xiaomi model to have sales greater than 10 million phones. The other models to hit that benchmark include the Xiaomi Mi 2, Xiaomi Mi 3, Xiaomi Mi 4, Xiaomi Redmi 1S and the Xiaomi Redmi Note.

The company, which just announced a new line of smart air conditioners for the home, has become the top domestic smartphone manufacturer in China. For the first quarter of this year, Apple was the overall leader in Chinese smartphone shipments, beating out Xiaomi by less than a percentage point.

This past week, Xiaomi reduced the price of the Redmi 2A, its lowest price phone, by 20%. That took the price down to the equivalent of $80 USD from $100 USD. Chinese consumers responded by buying 200,000 units within hours of the announcement. By the end of the day, over 300,000 Redmi 2A smartphones had been rung up.
