Looks like Xiaomi Mi3 will be back sooner rather than later. Sales of Xiaomi’s last year flagship phone was indefinitely suspended last month in spite of the huge demand as Xiaomi and Flipkart wanted to focus on Redmi 1S for the time being.
Both hot selling smartphones – The Xiaomi Mi3 and Xiaomi Redmi 1S have been listed on Infibeam with a coming soon tag. The price mentioned in the listing is the official retail price, i.e. 13,999 INR and 5,999 INR which indicates that the devices will sell through official channels.
Xiaomi earlier indicated that it was satisfied with its partnership with Flipkart, but was open to other options. The handsets retailing on Infibeam will provide more choice to customers, but stock is still likely to run out in mere seconds.
Xiaomi also explained that there production schedules are set months ahead and it wasn’t easy to increase the production (of Mi3) abruptly to match the demand. It’s unclear how Xiaomi will manage its limited stock between two sales portals. Perhaps Flipkart will move on to selling Redmi Note, the next Xiaomi phones in pipeline, meanwhile (pure speculation).
Also, Micromax Canvas Nitro, which is much hyped Xiaomi challenger from leading domestic manufacturer, has been listed on Infibeam after exclusively retailing on Snapdeal for a couple of weeks. The handset is presently in stock and available in white and mystic blue colors for 12,649 INR. For more details read our Micromax Canvas Nitro Full Review.
