Xiaomi Mi3 made a remarkable debut in India (via Flipkart) last week, with stocks running out within 40 minutes of its release. And now, the feature-rich smartphone is all set to go sale again on 29 July.
Xiaomi's exclusive e-commerce partner Flipkart has announced that Mi-3 sale will kick start at 2:00 pm noon, 29 July. It has to be noted that users must be pre-registered with the e-retailer, in order to buy the phone on Tuesday. Those who have not registered can head to Flipkart (here) to make themselves eligible to purchase Mi3 [registration deadline ends tonight at 23:59 pm, July 28].
There is also good news for those unlucky pre-registered users, who failed to order the Mi3 on 22 July. As a goodwill gesture, Xiaomi has promised that they will be given priority in tomorrow's sales [note: Flipkart says this is a one-time opportunity, if these people once again fail to buy the phone, they will have to register their name again in the future Mi3 sales].
The e-commerce website is allowing consumers to buy one unit per each account. This restriction is kind of a precautionary measure by Flipkart, to avoid illegal hoarding by people who re-sell the devices for exorbitant fares.
[Tip: make sure you log in to your Flipkart account 2-3 hours before the 2:00 pm Sale]
