Xiaomi's e-commerce partner Flipkart is reportedly offering early access pass to select customers to buy its flagship Mi4 next week.
Flipkart's exclusive 'First' service subscribers are receiving mails from the online shopping firm that they will stand a chance to lay their hands on to the new Xiaomi Mi4 before the normal flash sale.
Interested 'First' buyers are expected to register at Flipkart for Xiaomi Mi4 before 2 February. Once all the formalities are completed, Flipkart will send a confirmation e-mail on 4 February to the successful buyers.
BGR India has learnt that only 2,500 lucky early bird Flipkart 'First' subscribers are expected to get early access pass to purchase Xiaomi Mi4.
How Flipkart's Early Access Pass to Xiaomi Mi4 works
During normal flash, we heard stories that people sit in front of the desktop, couple of hours ahead of the sale, watching the count-down clock to hit zero with bated breath, and frantically press buy button once it goes live. Only a handful of people are successful in buying the phone.
However, for the privileged 'First' subscribers, Flipkart automatically adds Xiaomi devices to their respective carts with less or no trouble at all.
However, the upcoming 10 February Flipkart Early access flash sale is a tad different compared to earlier flash sales.
For Redmi Note and Redmi 1S sales, Flipkart conducted this event a day prior to the normal flash sale. This time, with Xiaomi Mi4, the company is conducting both the events simultaneously.
As far as normal buyers are concerned, there will be around 25,000 to 35,000 units up for grabs on 10 February.Non- First subscribers are also advised to get registered on Flipkart [HERE]
