In addition to the stocks running out at a blink of an eye, the first flash sale was marred with issues like the site crashing. Some users reported that the site showed them an error message the moment they refreshed at 2:00PM. Others, who were lucky enough to add the phone to their shopping carts, reported that the site crashed on the payments page and the handset had disappeared.
For those who missed out on buying the Yureka, Yu has revealed that the smartphone will go on sale again next week on January 22, which is a Thursday. There is however no word on how many units will be available during the sale, or when the registrations window will be open.
