Flipkart sold 15,000 units of Xiaomi Mi 3 in 2 seconds in India
The third flash sale, which took place on Flipkart was of very high interest and had more than 150,000 registrations before the start of the trade.
If you ever thought how in the world can a person complete a purchase in 2 seconds, you are right, its impossible. So, how do Xiaomi calculate the timing? Well, it’s not about completing your order, it’s all about managing to put a unit into your cart that Xiaomi counts. It’s not the best figure for comparison purposes, but it’s certainly one Xiaomi would want you to remember.
Hugo Barra, Vice President, Xiaomi Global said -
“We are completely overwhelmed by the demand for Mi 3 by our fans here in India and are working diligently with our manufacturing partners as well as our local partners and the user community here in India to bring more devices and deliver the best possible product experience with Mi 3 and other models to come.”
The next sale is on August 12. Users will have to register again for the next sale. Xiaomi has been using Raksha Bandhan as a stage for pitching its next round of smartphones, with the official tweet saying “Make this Raksha Bandhan a special one for your sister”.
This will be the third flash sale of the device. Xiaomi, through social media, has revealed that there will be 15,000 units on Flipkart for sale on Tuesday. More than 1,00,000 people have registered for the Mi 3.
