Xiaomi India has faced a constant scrutiny over the unavailability of its smartphones during its flash sales. While the company constantly claims to have upped the inventory with every flash sale, its devices are quick to go 'out of stock' every time. To avoid the situation with its latest smartphone's sales scheduled for March 20, Xiaomi claims to have brought 4 lakh units of the Redmi 5 to India this time.
As per a recent tweet by the company, over 4 lakh units of their recently launched budget smartphone, the Redmi 5 will be available in a flash sale tomorrow. The sale has been scheduled for 12 noon and will also see Mi LED Smart TV 4 and Mi LED Smart TV 4A up for grabs.
