Mi3 will make a short comeback for Indian fans
Xiaomi gave a shock to lots of fans who were willing to get their hands on the hugely popular Mi3 by halting the sales of the device. There is something to cheer about for Mi3 fans.
For the festive season, Mi India and Flipkart will have a surprise in store for the fans who never gave up their willingness to get a Mi3.
On October 6th, 25000 Mi fans who tried to buy Mi3 at least 5 times or more will have the device added by default to their cart on Flipkart.com. These fans will now get a chance of buying the Mi 3 without having to register or hit the “buy” button.
Mi India has had a great response from fans till now, making available more than 300,000 Mi phones since its launch in India two months back.
The lucky fans eligible for this festive surprise will be intimated directly on October 5th that they will have the Mi 3 made available directly in their cart on October 6, 2014 and will have about 1 to 2 hours to checkout. If there are dropouts or a fan declines to purchase the device a second batch will have the device in their cart the same day.

Manu Jain, GM and Head of India Operations at Xiaomi said,
“We would like to pay tribute to our most passionate fans through this little gift of recognizing their passion for our products. Even though they have repeatedly tried to get the device and failed, their determination to get Mi 3 clearly sets them apart as fans that any brand would be lucky to have. We do recognize this and have taken this initiative to provide them direct access to purchase the Mi 3. We wish all our fans a happy Dussehra, Eid, and Diwali, and thank them for their love and support.”
Xiaomi had a good run in the Indian market with both Mi3 and RedMi 1S. Along with 25000 Mi3, Flipkart and Mi India will have Redmi 1S on sale on October 14th. The Festive season in India will see around 100000 units from Xiaomi. We hope lot more genuine people will get their hands on these devices this time.
