Xiaomi’s held another weekly flash sale in India today. This one was for the Redmi Note 4G, and in fact this was the first time that you were able to buy the LTE-capable iteration of the company’s phablet in the subcontinent. So, understandably, the interest was high.
In fact, 200,000 people registered for the sale. Of those, however, only 40,000 people managed to get a Redmi Note 4G, as that’s the amount of units that were made available. The entire batch sold out in six seconds, which sounds incredible until you realize it’s definitely not the first time something like this has happened with Xiaomi products over there.
Sure, the flash sale model itself is built exactly in order to create hype, and selling out a batch of products in six seconds will do just that. But perhaps Indians do also like Xiaomi smartphones too, since they keep buying them in such numbers – and let’s not forget that the Chinese company would have sold 200,000 units if it had enough of them in stock.
In India, Xiaomi has already moved more than one million handsets, and it looks like it will sell many more in the future. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G supports the LTE bands that are approved for use in India. It comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset, which has a 1.6 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU, a 5.5-inch 720p screen, 13 MP rear camera, 2GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable storage, and a 3,100 mAh battery.
