Xiaomi’s flash sale model has spawned a black market for the Mi 3 smartphone in India. It has also resulted in clever marketing gimmicks like this Chrome browser extension that claims it will add the phone to your cart as soon as it goes live on Flipkart’s server.
Only those who registered after the close of the last sale on August 12 will be eligible to buy the Xiaomi Mi 3 in this sale. Registration for the next sale will open at 6PM today itself.
