Xiaomi has now sold one million phones in India

Xiaomi is not one of the common names you'll hear as a brand for smartphones and other technology devices. But it is one of the popular brands in Asia, especially in its hometown, China, where they have reportedly toppled Samsung as the number one smartphone manufacturer in the aforementioned country. Also, the Chinese brand even plans to take on tech giants Samsung and Apple for the crown as the top smartphone brand in the world.

It seems that its plan for world domination continues; it has now ventured to India, and according to statements on Twitter by Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi's head for the country, they have sold more than one million handsets there in a span of five months. This is apparently not a surprise, as Xiaomi has a slew of devices that have modest to premium specifications, which cost notably lower than other brands, which is important for countries like India. They have also partnered with Flipkart, an online shopping website in India for its exclusive release and every Tuesday, the website runs a sale on Xiaomi devices, like the Mi 3, Redmi 1S, and the Redmi Note phablet, and in a matter of seconds, the site lists their Xiaomi devices as "out-of-stock."

Xiaomi does not stop here though; back in July, the Chinese smartphone maker has claimed that they have sold 50,000 of their Mi Pads, in under four minutes. Also, it has been rumored last month that they are planning to compete with GoPro in the action camera business.
