Just 12 hours after making it available to the public, Xiaomi reportedly sold 800,000 units of its newly released Redmi Note 2 during its exclusive China launch.

According to FirstPost, the device was made available on Monday and will again be sold this coming August 24.

"The company is expected to launch the device in India as well. Xiaomi will hold an event in New Delhi on 19 August where it is expected to release the MIUI 7 too," added the same report.

NDTV Gadgets discussed that this achievement for this Chinese company "is worth noting" since they were also able to make a Guinness record for selling 2.11 million smartphones in just 24 hours.

Launched last week alongside the Redmi Note 2 Prime, the Redmi Note 2 comes with a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display and an octacore MediaTek Helio X10 processor (2GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 + 2GHz quad-core Cortex-A53) with 2GB of RAM.

The device can be purchased in two storage variants - 16GB and 32GB with a microSD card slot for expandable memory.

In addition, FirstPost said the device has a 13-megapixel Samsung rear camera equipped with phase detection autofocus (PDAF) and a shutter speed of 0.1 second. Its front-facing camera is 5MP with Omnivision.

"The device runs the company's newest MIUI 7 that is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop. The device is now lighter than its predecessor at 160 grams and measures 152mm x 76mm x 8.25mm," added the same report.

The Redmi Note 2 is also expected to have dual SIM support, IR blaster and 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

Color options for the device includes black, white, cyan, oink and yellow.

iDigitalTimes reported that the 16GB version of the device is sold for $125.

Its more advanced brother, the Redmi Note 2 Prime, is said to carry a $155 price tag with its 2.2GHz chip, 32GB storage and 2GB RAM.

Phone Arena reported that the phone is very affordable.

"Sounds too good to be true, but totally real - Xiaomi already slung some 800,000 units of the entry-level phone in a 12-hour flash sale that took place in China a few days ago," reported Phone Arena.

It added that the device is a good catch especially with the specifications that come with it for a cheap price.

With its second sale next week, the device is again expected to sell thousands of units since it is both affordable and powerful.
