Finally Redmi Note 3 And Mi 5 to Be On Open Sale Starting June 1
We already reported about the open sale of Mi5, but Redmi Note 3 will also be in open sale starting June 1. Both of these Xiaomu phones will be available to all Indian customers without requiring any registrations or flash sales.

If you were trying to buy Redmi Note 3 or Mi 5, you can now buy any of these devices without any frustrations of the flash sale. Just visit mi.com and buy the phone you want. I hope both variants of Redmi Note 3 will be available in the sale. People want to buy 3 GB variant but Xiaomi is forcing them to buy 2 GB variant as 3GB variant was not put on sale.
Redmi Note was launched in March and Mi 5 was launched in April in the Indian market. Redmi Note 3 saw a huge response and lakhs of people fought in flash sales to buy this phone but returned empty handed. Many people reported their frustrations on flash sales. This unavailability of smartphone helped rival phones to get customers as no one can wait for months. The company is late in making these phones available for open sale. But this is the choice of company.
I hope the company will do the same for other products. Xiaomi launches good products but the availability of these products in Indian market is rare. Even we are waiting for its power banks and speakers to come back in stocks. I don’t think we should think about getting its drone.
