YU Televentures Ltd, Micromax's new subsidiary, is all geared up for another weekly flash sale on Thursday, 26 March.
Amazon India, Micromax's Exclusive online sale partner, will host the 11th edition of the Yureka flash sale on Thursday at 2pm. There is no word as to how many units will be up for grabs. We will update on that once we get the details.
On 19 March, all 25,000 units got sold out in record seven seconds, boasted YU on Twitter. But the company still hasn't taken initiative of scaling up device production so that it can offer the phone via open sale.
Rivals Motorola, Xiaomi and this week, Lenovo, too began selling A6000 without any registration process. If Micromax fails to bridge the supply-demand gap, people will go find alternate smartphones. In a fast-growing market like India, consumers have many choices in this budget smartphone category.
Prospective consumers are advised to get registered to become eligible to buy the YU Yureka. If the user has already registered for previous flash sales, they need not re-apply, they will be put into the waiting list. They can directly try ordering the handset on 19 March.
