Xiaomi is all set to make its Mi Max phablet available for sale a few days after it was launched along with MIUI 8 OS. Like the company's other products such as the Mi 5 and Redmi Note 3 among others, the just announced device too will be available in home country China through flash sale.
The Xiaomi Mi Max flash sale 1 will kick off on Tuesday and over 8 million people have registered to buy the phablet, reported GizmoChina. It went on to say that only the 32GB model with Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor will be available initially and 100,000 units will be up for sale during flash sale 1, giving a hint that it could go out of stock in a few seconds.
The Chinese tech giant is expected to release the device to other markets, including India, eventually though it hasn't opened up on that yet.
