Last week, Xiaomi launched Mi Note 2 in China along with Mi MIX concept smartphone. The new handsets managed to impress critics and fans equally. The Mi Note 2 is available in China only, and during its first flash sale, it was sold out in barely 50 seconds.
The first flash sale of Mi Note 2 went live on Tuesday, November 1, on the company’s official website. The new smartphone was sold out in just 50 seconds soon after the sale window opened. It is set to become one of the bestselling smartphones by Xiaomi. The Mi MIX went on sale in China on November 3.
Unfortunately, the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 will not be launched in India. Xiaomi’s VP, Hugo Barra has confirmed that both Mi MIX and Mi Note 2 will not be launched in India anytime soon. This seems like a strange decision since India is the world’s second largest smartphone market after China and the Mi Note 2 has the potential to be quite successful in the country.
