Xiaomi has did it again in its fourth flash sale. This time they sold out all of 20,000 units in just few seconds. Xiaomi and Flipkart has been launching flash sales from last few weeks since Xiaomi’s entry to India with Mi3 selling exclusively through flipkart. Since launch, they have seen an unprecedented demand from Indian buyers. Hugo Barra the vice president of Xiaomi admitted that his company underestimated the demand in indian market. But this has invited criticism from buyers who have been waiting for weeks and couldn’t get it. Many took to twitter criticising the limited flash sales as marketing tactic. But this tactic seems to be working on a hattrick.
Last week they sold out 15,000 Mi3 Smartphones in two seconds flat. Beating the record 5 second flash sale last month.
Xiaomi had put up 20,000 units this time and it took just seconds to get them off shelf before one could snap their fingers. The next and fifth flash sale is on Auguest 19 and Flipkart has already started accepting registrations from 6PM today. Even those who has registered before will have to register for the next sale.
After today’s sale, Xiaomi have sold 50,000 phones through Flipkart at 13,999 since July 22 launch.
