Very few lucky ones were able to see a Redmi Note added to their cart at 6:00PM yesterday.
Forgot to tweet this but I got my order from @Flipkart today, a day ahead of schedule. First time it’s happened with me. Good for a change.

As with Xiaomi s previous flash sales, one person will only be able to buy one device. Additionally, Flipkart suggests all registered users to be online at least two to three hours before the sale to increase their chances for a device to be added to their cart.
To recap on the specifications, the Redmi Note flaunts a 5.5-inch HD (1280 720 pixels) IPS display with a pixel density of 267ppi, and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. It is powered by a 1.7GHz Mediatek MT6592 octa-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM.
The phablet features a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB internal storage and 3,100mAh battery. Connectivity options include dual-SIM card slots, 3G support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and on the software front it runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean wrapped under MIUI version 5.
Only registered users will be able to participate in the sale. If you failed to register, the next sale will happen on December 9, for which fresh registrations will begin at 6:00PM today.
