“Redmi Note 7 series sales had crossed 10 million units in May, meaning it took the brand a little over a month to sell another 5 million units”
The Redmi Note 7 series smartphones debuted in China back in January, with the Chinese brand expanded the series with Redmi Note 7S a few months later. Now six months after launch, Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain in a tweet announced that 15 million units of Redmi Note 7 series smartphones have been sold globally so far. Back in May, Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note 7 series surpassed the 10 million milestones and called the victory a testament of “holding Xiaomi values, such as high quality and value for your money.” Confirming the same, Xiaomi’s global spokesperson Donovan Sung thanked Mi Fans for the support.

Notably, Xiaomi’s Redmi now functions as a standalone brand in China and also operates as an independent entity in the Indian market as well. To recall, Redmi Note 7 Pro was exclusively launched in India in February and was later announced in China in March. Unlike the variant that sells in China, the Indian Redmi Note 7 came with just 12MP sensor at the back. For this reason, the brand introduced Redmi Note 7s with a 48MP primary rear camera in May. In India, the Redmi Note 7 series surpassed 1 million mark in just one month of hitting stores.
The high-end variant in the series — the Redmi Note 7 Pro sports a 6.3-inch display with full-HD+ resolution and a waterdrop-style notch. It is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform with Adreno 612 GPU paired with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The handset runs on MIUI 10 based on Android 9 Pie out of the box. A 4,000mAh battery fuels the phone.
