Not until the Chinese smartphone had debuted its exclusive sales rights on Flipkart, than the website’s server crashed and zoned into a site of technical difficulty!
The buyers were charged multiple times without getting a secured order and some just got flustered waiting for it! Such hype of a situation for a smartphone that already has its hands on in the Singaporean smartphone market does not seem too abrupt.
The online mega-retail store Flipkart had already registered 1,00,000 online applications for the Xiaomi MI3 smartphones between July 15th to july 21st. Having said that, the ecommerce website must be prepared by such voluptuous demand on its website, but it seemed from the latest updates that it was not. Rather the website crashed!
May be the news surrounding is a cause of genuine technical flaws or it is just another gimmick to influence greater demand than the pre-existing one in the smartphone market. It was quite clear from the loss of tandem that Flipkart didn’t carry the necessary stocks that it was supposed to! Deliberately or not, you are the best judge!
However, Xiaomi MI3 had offered more lines of sales in the Chinese market within a matter of minutes!
Flipkart has again offered its buyers for an online registration and will surely start selling the phone from the 29th of July.
The salient features of this budgeted smartphone are:
5 inch full HD display.
2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor.
Android 4.4 (KitKat).
Xiaomi’s proprietary MIUI skin.
2GB RAM with 16 GB internal storage.
13 MP camera on the rear and 2MP on the front.
For connectivity – Wi-Fi, 3G, 2G, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0 and NFC.
21 hours talk time on 3G networks.
However, the Xiaomi MI3 budgeted smartphone does not support expanded memory storage via SD card! But from the air that it has created, it is definitely aiming to sell like the hotcakes! Smart move Flipkart!
