The last flash sales of Xiaomi's  4G-enabled phablet saw a whopping 50,000 units going on sale on January 13. All the units were sold out in just 2 minutes 50 seconds on Flipkart.

Xiaomi,  however, also makes available its Redmi Note 4G through Airtel. The company could sell more models in Indian stores while pursuing its primarily online-only strategy if it succeeds in selling enough Redmi Note 4G handsets through shops of carrier Airtel.

Priced at Rs  9,999, Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G features 5.5-inch 720 pixels display and 13 MP rear camera with LED flash. Also, it has 5 MP front snapper and the smartphone works upon 1.6 GHz quad-core Cortex-A7 processor,  2GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable internal storage.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G comes with a 3,100 mAh battery and has only one SIM card slot unlike its 3G version which has dual-SIM slot.

Xiaomi entered India with online retailer Flipkart.com in July, selling phones through flash sales whereby availability is limited to short time frames.

The online strategy cuts down on marketing and distribution costs, allowing Xiaomi to sell feature-rich phones at low prices.
