Xiaomi’s Redmi 3S and Redmi 3S Prime today crossed the one million mark on Flipkart according to the Chinese smartphone maker. The smartphone was launched on August 9, not long before the festive season set in and is now one of the most sold smartphones on Flipkart.
According to Flipkart, these smartphones are a hit among the youth with most of its buyers falling between the age of 18-30 years and they have a 4.2 star rating for phones that fall under the ‘below 12k’ segment.
