Xiaomi has, for the first time ever, put more than one color of its 32-GB Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 smartphone on sale.
Amazon is showing two color variants — the already introduced Gold, and a new Dark Grey variant — of the 32 GB model ‘in stock’ as of now.

‘In stock’ means stocks have arrived, and sales will start at the appointed time, which is 2 PM today afternoon.
Customers had been expressing displeasure over the measly stocks of 32 GB Redmi Notes being sold in India.
It is estimated that only 2,000-4,000 (and we are being generous here) 32GB versions of the device have been sold, and all of them have been in the Gold color.
The fact that there are two colors on offer seems to indicate that there will be at least 5,000-10,000 units up for grabs today.
The 16 GB version is available in three colors, adding Silver to the above two. Many people dislike the Gold color as it is too flashy/cheap.
There is no clarity which colors will be available on Mi.com, the company’s own website where three sales will be conducted today at 11 AM, 2 PM and 5 PM.
Simply going to the product page shows three options including Silver, but the product page is to be used for buying both 16 GB and 32 GB and therefore doesn’t suggest that the more expensive version will be available in all three colors.
