No more flash sales for the 64GB Xiaomi Mi 4 in India; new earphones now available
Starting tomorrow, those in India with a hankering for the 64GB Xiaomi Mi 4 can purchase the phone without having to participate in a flash sale of the device. That means you can wake up at 3am with a craving for the flagship handset, and make the purchase right then and there. Just the other day, Xiaomi ran a flash sale for the model and did not announce a sell out. That usually means that it is time to revert to open sales of a product. At the end of last month, the manufacturer started offering the 16GB variant of the handset in the country without resorting to the flash sales technique.

Starting tomorrow, the 64GB variant of the Xiaomi Mi 4 will be offered by Indian online retailer Flipkart, priced at the equivalent of $384 USD. The 5-inch screen on the handset features a resolution of 1080 x 1920, and the unit is driven by a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU. The Adreno 330 GPU handles graphics and inside you will find 3GB of RAM. A 13MP camera graces the back of the phone, and the 8MP front-facing camera handles selfies and video chats. A 3080mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 4.4.3 is pre-installed with MIUI 6 running on top of Android. We should point out that there is no microSD slot on the handset.

Xiaomi has also introduced a new pair of earphones with an updated design. It features brushed, anodized aluminum that is corrosion resistant. The earphones include a "Spiral Pipe" sound chamber and come with three pairs of silicon ear buds. The accessory is priced at $16 USD and will work on most smartphones.

Anyone who puts a product at a comparatively cheap retail pricing, in very LIMITED QUANTITIES is going to sell out almost instantaneously. Does this tell us that Xiaomi makes good products and that they're reputable? Or is it just saying that people will buy whatever they can, that they can afford at a certain caliber. All the articles about these Chinese phone manufacturers just seem so redundant and irrelevant, considering all these "tech superstars" are never going to leave parts of the Asian peninsula (mainly China) due to blatant copyright and intellectual property infringements. Also due to the fact that these "low" prices would not be a sustainable reality in the global market when you need to open subsidiaries around the globe, pay those employees, pay licensing fees, import fees, distribution fees, marketing fees, as well as any applicable royalties for other pre-existing companies technologies or inventions. It's not a "lawless" jungle in the developed markets.

Very well said. I agree, I feel these Chinese companies are just putting pieces together to make a phone. Qualcomm, JDI, Samsung, they just order parts from these big company and put them together while copying iPhone or galaxy design, LOL, nothing original, nothing needed to research or develop, and no fees needed for license or copyright. xiaomi's CEO said they will beat Apple to crap in 10 years, I really wonder.
