Xiaomi India is very secretive about the sales of its Redmi Note 3, which is puzzling considering the fact that it used to give sale details of its past devices, including number of units sold and the time taken before being sold out. The company hasn't revealed the number of units sold in the first and second flash sales.
The Chinese smartphone maker claimed that the Redmi Note 3 received 8.5 lakh registrations for the first flash sale March 9 and that it was sold out in a short span of time, but it hasn't provided any detail so far. The company has also kept the details of the second flash sale in the dark.
Xiaomi India head Manu Kumar Jain wrote on his Twitter page that the second flash sale of Redmi Note 3 got over in a flash but didn't reveal the figures.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 third flash sale will begin at 2 PM on Wednesday, March 23. Registration for the next sale has begun again at Amazon and the company's official website. Those who unsuccessfully participated or failed to buy the device in this week's flash sale will have to register again.
Available in gold, silver and dark grey colours, the Redmi Note 3 is priced at Rs. 9,999 (around $137) for the 16GB variant and Rs 11,999 (around $168) for the 32GB model. Featuring fingerprint sensor, it sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with 1,080x1,920 pixels (403 ppi pixel density) and comes in two models -- 16GB internal storage with a 2GB RAM and 32GB internal storage with a 3GB RAM.
Under the hood, Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 processor, an MIUI 7.0 based Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, a 16MP main camera with f/2.0 aperture, a 5MP secondary camera with f/2.0, and a non-removable Li-Po 4,000mAh battery.
