Xiaomi launched its first smartphone in India, - Xiaomi Mi 3 last week and in short time it has been acclaimed as a successful product as the smartphone got sold out from Flipkart in less than 40 minutes.
However, the latest controversial news regarding the exaggeration of the device's sell-out news have come out in public.
According to the source close to BGR India, the China-based Xiaomi, which partnered with the aforementioned online retailer only sold-out less than 10,000 units of the Mi3 against the 100,000 per-registrations that it received from the Indian buyers. That is just accounts to 10% of the total demand of the smartphone.
However, the remaining 90,000 people in India, who all are still hoping to buy the Mi 3, will be able to receive it starting July 29. The pre-registered buyers will be automatically registered to buy from the Mi 3 when the second batch arrives at the given date.
Although 10,000 units getting sold out in less then 40 minutes is not an ordinary case scenario, the second batch of the Mi 3 in India will justify, whether the smartphone was a hit or a miss.
