Update (Aug 19): The fifth sale of Xiaomi Mi 3 smartphone also got over in seconds today. According to Xiaomi, it took a total of 2.3 seconds for the entire batch of 20,000 phones to get sold out. The next sale is scheduled for August 26 and you will be able to register beginning 6PM later today.
Earlier: Still failing to provide the adequate stock for Mi 3 smartphone in India, Chinese smartphone Xiaomi today saw its fourth sale getting over in just 2.4 seconds. While the timing is 0.4 seconds more than last week, the company had also offered 5,000 more units than the third sale of 15,000 units.
With around 150,000 registration for today’s sale, it is not surprising to see that it got over so fast but the registrations clearly show that it will take at least a couple of months to get some sort of normalisation in the demand and supply.
Xiaomi revealed that it is continuing the weekly sales and the next Mi 3 sale will take place on August 19 and the registrations of the sale are now open at Flipkart.
There is no word on how many units the company plans to import for the fifth sale but we hope that number is over 20,000 units.
If you are getting tired of waiting for the phone, we will suggest you check out Asus Zenfone 5 or Moto G smartphones as the alternatives.
