This is a lot considering that most of Xiaomi’s flagships go out of stock in mere seconds. Flipkart requested all the lucky buyers to finish their purchase by 5.30PM, after which the device will be removed from their carts. The company will conduct its next sale on March 3, for which registrations will begin at 6.00PM today.
Xiaomi also conducted a flash sale at 2.00PM for its 16GB variant, which was in stock for a while before it ran out. This could be as most users would opt for the 64GB variant which costs just Rs 4,000 extra.
To compete with the Mi 4, OnePlus launched its 16GB One variant in India. Now, the company also offers 16GB and 64GB variants of the OnePlus One, just like Xiaomi.
To recap, the Mi 4 flaunts a 5-inch full HD 1080p display with a pixel density of 441ppi. It is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM.
