Will there be a Xiaomi Redmi Note Flipkart sale very soon? If the Facebook post of Xiaomi VP Hugo Barra is any indication, then it’s very possible that the online retailer will have a flash sale for the highly anticipated phablet very soon.
According to First Post, the former Googler turned Xiaomi executive revealed that 10,000 units of Xiaomi’s Android phablet was sold in a mere 40 seconds and the Indian market is getting the Redmi Note next.
The company executive didn’t mention any exact release date.
“Mi Indonesia: 10,000 Redmi Note out of stock in under 40 secs today! Redmi Note coming to India next,” wrote Hugo Barra on his official Facebook Profile.
First posted that it means the Redmi Note may replace the best-selling Redmi 1S in India, which is sold on flash sales as well in India.
The Xiaomi Mi3 has also been available on Flipkart previously and we earlier speculated a possible Flipkart sale for the unit.
Specs of the Xiaomi Redmi Note include a 5.5-inch 720P IPS display, a 1.7GHz MediaTek MT6592 octa-core processor and 1.7GB of RAM.
Priced at RS 9,999, base on an earlier statement by Xiaomi, it will be one of the cheapest smartphones made available with such a high amount of RAM.
Internal storage for the Xiaomi Redmi Note start at 8GB, but thanks to Micro SD support, it can go up to 32GB.
It has a 3MP rear camer and a 5MP front-facing snapper plus a 3100 mAh battery.
The Redmi Note runs on the company’s MIUI OS.
Like many Xiaomi devices, the Xiaomi Redmi Note is also a best-selling flash sale success.
During its flash sale in Taiwan, the company sold 10,000 units of the phablet in just a second.
Xiaomi is tying up exclusively with Flipkart for its India launch but the company will not be relinquising control in terms of price and availability of the device.
One of the biggest tech success stories of the year, Xiaomi has become China’s number one handset maker beating Samsung, and the third largest in the world in terms of shipments.
