Xiaomi aims to sell 10 million units of the Redmi Note 2 says CEO Lei Jun
According to CEO Lei Jun, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 sold 2.15 million units in the first month after being released in the middle of August. That includes a record 800,000 phones sold in a flash sale, on the day the handset was launched. The executive says that Xiaomi is looking to ring up 10 million units of the phone by the end of this year. Helping the company in this task is the price of the device, which launched at the equivalent of $160 USD for the 16GB model, and $210 USD for the 32GB version.

The device is sturdy, and as we showed you back in August, itsurvived a drop test and a water test. Keep in mind that the phone is not officially water resistant, so we would suggest that you don't take any chances with it.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is equipped with a 5.5-inch screen, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920 (FHD). That gives the display a 401ppi pixel density. The MediaTek MT6795 chipset drives the device, and contains an octa-core 2.2GHz CPU and a PowerVR G6200 GPU. 2GB of RAM is inside, along with 16GB/32GB of expandable storage. A 13MP camera adorns the back of the phone, with a front-facing 5MP snapper in front to shoot selfies and handle video chats. Keeping the lights on is a 3060mAh battery, and Android 5.0 is pre-installed with MIUI 7 running on top.

Xiaomi expects sales of the phone to increase over the next few months, which includes the upcoming holiday shopping season. Can the company sell 8 million Redmi Note 2 units in the fourth quarter? Xiaomi would have to sell a little less than 2.7 million phones a month from October to the end of December to reach its goal.
