Xiaomi sells a quarter million Redmi Note 4s in 10 minutes, Nougat upgrade coming "soon"

Xiaomi launched its latest handset, the Redmi Note 4, in India last week and it has already racked up quite a bit of sales: a quarter of a million, to be exact.

The handset, which features a 5.5" 1080p display, a Snapdragon 625 processor and 2 or 4GB of RAM is Xiaomi latest iteration of the company's hugely popular Redmi Note series. As is Xiaomi's custom, the handset was offered in a 'flash sale' on its own website, as well as on a partnering online retailer (Flipkart). The handset is available in three variants, with the cheapest model going for ₹9,999 ($148) and the most extravagant, featuring 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, being offered at ₹12,999 ($190).

Following its immense success, Xiaomi India shared the following tweet to share their excitement about the new device:

Alongside the news of the launch was the announcement that buyers of the Redmi Note 4 can also expect a Android Nougat-based version of MIUI soon, with a release preview already available for those who can't wait any longer.

Those looking to pick up the Redmi Note 4 for themselves will have to wait a little longer, as the next flash sale is expected to take place on January 30, with expectations of a similar success.
