Xiaomi has also confirmed that they will sell the Redmi Note on December 9 as well, therefore you can then register for the next sale if you fail to purchase the device on December 2. The company has not disclosed the number of units it will make available on the day of sale yet.
Flipkart has launched an exclusive offer for its Flipkart First customers. The first five thousand Flipkart First subscribers who register for the sale will get the Redmi Note added to their cart automatically and they can purchase the Redmi Note on December 1 at 6.00PM, one day prior to the flash sale. This is similar to what Flipkart did when it launched the Redmi 1S in India. However, many customers complained that the device was not added to their cart on the promised date by Flipkart.
