Here is something interesting that will make your Dipawali much more enjoyable than ever! Xiaomi is on a record-breaking spree of sort, in terms of its previously hosted flash sales.
Xiaomi has advanced expectations of Mi 3 fans by declaring another flash sale on Flipkart along with Priority Passes for consumers who have tried in the past sales, but failed and has lighted that it will be putting 100,000 devices up for sale on the ocassion of Dipawali.
The past sales have seen up to a 100,000 customers registering for sales which had only 10,000 units for sale. On a comparison note, the total number of Mi 3 unit sold so far, through the six flash sales have been close to 95,000.
For the customers who, unfortunately could not manage to place a device in their cart in spite of being pre registered, the system will make sure to place a device in to such customers’ carts leaving them time to complete their checkout. However, it is still not clear that how many of these devices will be earmarked for priority sales.
Xiaomi seems to have retained it’s hold this time around as well, and is pretty sure that the sale is going to further soar upwards. A good sign for the industry as overal, as quality continues to capture the imagination.
It seems, buyer should shore themselves up, as the market may see a tsunami of smartphones sales this festive season!
