After Taiwan's Fair Trade Commission slapped a fine of $20,000 for advertising false sales figures in the native market, Xiaomi must have realized to maintain the transparency between the customers and other respective authorities.
Thus, ahead of the third flash sales of the Mi 3 in India, the company has tweeted saying specifically that 15,000 units of the device will be up for sale this time on Flipkart. To refresh you about the earlier two flash sales, Xiaomi, which had taken a registration from 100,000 customers could only deliver the units to 10,000 customers. However, it looks like 5,000 more units of Mi 3 might just do the work.
Xiaomi said on Twitter, "Make this Raksha Bandhan a special one for your sister! Reg. now at http://www.mi.com/in to buy a Mi 3 on 05 Aug!" The Chinese handset maker also revealed that 100,000 people have already registered for the next flash sale on Tuesday.
In the past two flash sales, the company said that it sold 20,000 Mi 3 units via Flipkart in India. Moreover, Xiaomi also claimed that the first batch of Mi 3 smartphones in India was sold out within 40 minutes and the second batch of 10,000 units just too 5 seconds to be sold out. If you are not aware, the Xiaomi Mi 3 is priced at Rs. 13,999.
