Xiaomi has received criticism for being unable to ensure sufficient stocks of its flagship Mi 3 smartphone are made available to Flipkart. The e-commerce major is conducting flash sales on behalf of the Chinese company. Xiaomi launched Mi 3 in India last month. Over 350,000 people have pre-registered to purchase the Mi 3, but so far a little over 35,000 units have been put up for sale in three batches.

In his reply to the BGR India reader’s comment, Barra also mentioned that the Redmi Note model that will be initially launched in India is the 3G version. He added that the 4G model unveiled in China has been built specifically for China’s TDD-LTE network.
