Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi made the highly anticipated K30 Pro (and its better-endowed sibling, the K30 Pro Zoom) official during an online event in China yesterday. The company chose the occasion to also brag about the sales of the K30 family’s predecessor, and that is the K20 series, comprised of the Xiaomi Redmi K20 and Redmi K20 Pro.
In the nine months in which those two models were available to buy, more than 5 million units were sold. Interestingly, half of those went to people buying a Redmi branded smartphone for the first time.
Furthermore, the company has already managed to sell more than one million Xiaomi Redmi K30 units in less than three months, the time elapsed since its release in China. This number is even more impressive when you consider that for the past couple of months China has been battling the COVID-19 pandemic. Apparently only 30% of the people who wanted to buy a Redmi K30 actually managed to, so there’s still a lot of pent-up demand there.
