India’s “Online Megastore” is giving customers a chance to buy Xiaomi’s new Mi 4i smartphone without having to go through the lottery of flash sales.
Launched on April 23 as an Indian exclusive (at least for now), the Xiaomi Mi 4i offers some of the best bang for the money we’ve seen on any device. Rs. 12,999, the equivalent of about $ 200, brings you a 5-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 615 octo-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a 13MP f/2.0 rear camera with dual-tone LED flash, and a 5.1MP f/1.8 front camera, and a 3,120 mAh battery. By any measure, this is a great device and it’s much cheaper than phones with similar specs and features.
Until now, customers had to pre-register to buy a Mi 4i and be lucky/fast enough to snag one before stocks ran out. As part of its sales event, Flipkart is currently offering the Xiaomi Mi 4i on open sale for Rs. 12,999. The open sale will continue tomorrow as well. Flipkart is also offering an exchange option that could give you up to Rs. 9000 if you bring in a Xiaomi device.
