When Xiaomi entered the Indian smartphone market in 2014, only the ambitious and those who like to throw caution to the wind would have predicted the brand to become the juggernaut it is today. Xiaomi continues to dominate the smartphone market in the country, often capturing the highest market share every quarter.
The Chinese OEM has been successful in cracking the code to thrive in a price-sensitive and budget-conscious market like India — a market that is similar to the Chinese smartphone market. The company took a multi-pronged approach to become a household name. From the online-only sales strategy to offering Redmi phones during flash sales, thus making consumers yearn to own a Redmi smartphone, Xiaomi’s tactics paid off.
One of the most important decisions Xiaomi took at this time was to maintain a low-profit margin per unit, and instead rely on the sheer volume of sales to rake in the cash. Furthermore, the brand decided against investing heavily in ads and brand ambassadors. Xiaomi famously said in 2017 that it wanted its consumers to become the brand ambassadors — a testament to the company’s faith and trust in the quality of its products. Redmi soon became the best-selling brand in the country, and offered feature-rich models to the budget and mid-range segment consumers.
Even today, Redmi offers a host of impressive smartphone models that satiate the consumer’s thirst for owning technologically advanced mobile devices at pocket-friendly prices. We have curated a list of the five best-selling Redmi smartphones in the country today, and expound on their features and specifications.
