NEW DELHI: Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has claimed that its Mi 3 smartphone went out of stock in just 5 seconds, the second time when it was put up on sale on Flipkart today. Last week, it had taken 39 minutes for the stock to finish when Mi 3 was first put on sale by the company.
Xiaomi has, like last time, not revealed exactly how many units were up for sale in this round. However, import-export tracking website Zauba has revealed that only 10,400 units of Mi 3 smartphone were brought to India on July 25.
In the first round of sales, as many as 1 lakh people had registered for the device on Flipkart, but only a few successfully managed to get one. In the second round, Xiaomi allowed more people to register for the device.
