After conducting six Redmi Note 3 flash sales, Xiaomi has decided to offer the device via open sale next week in India. The company's official Twitter account confirmed that the Redmi Note 3 open sale will go live at 2:00 p.m. on April 27.
This means consumers need not get themselves registered to become eligible to buy the device and also need not fret about completing the purchase transaction within any prescribed time limit.
However, the link provided in the tweet goes straight to Xiaomi's Mi.com, hinting that the open sale will take place only on the company-owned e-commerce site, and buyers, who prefer to go to Amazon, may have to register for the flash sale.
