Last week, Xiaomi, often called as 'China's Apple', detailed the total number of Mi 3 units sold in India so far. The company confirmed that it sold 20,000 Mi 3 units in the two flash sales on Flipkart.
Xiaomi had claimed that the first batch of Mi 3 smartphones in India was sold out within 40 minutes of its availability. The second batch of Mi 3 handsets was sold out within 5 seconds.
In order to avoid backlash from consumers, the company had confirmed that the second batch of Mi 3 handsets were sold through a different process. Xiaomi explained that the process allowed users to add the handset to their cart at the start of the sale, and let them checkout the smartphone at a later time.
