It is expected that any Xiaomi product which goes on a flash sale gets sold out within a matter of seconds. The exact same thing has happened, yet again. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G which went on sale today at 2PM on Flipkart was sold within seconds of being available online.

The smartphone, priced at 9,999 was sold within 6 seconds of commencing the sale. Xiaomi's Manu Kumar Jain made the announcement on Twitter on how quickly the smartphones went out of stock.

Xiaomi India Head Manu Kumar Jain shared with NDTV that 40,000 units had gone out of stock today. The company also announced that they would have their next sale on 6 January and registrations would begin today itself at 6PM.      

He also had a surprise for people who purchased the product.

Priced at Rs 9,999, the Redmi Note 4 sports a 5.5-inch HD IPS display and comes powered by 1.6GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8928 processor. Other specs include 8GB onboard storage, microSD card slot up to 32GB, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter for selfies and 3100mAh battery. It runs Xiaomi’s MIUI OS.
