First Mi5, Redmi Note 3 sale over: Three remaining including on Amazon, Xiaomi

paniAs expected, the first sale of Redmi Note 3 and Mi5 both got sold out soon after the gates were opened.

With this, there are three more to go — two at 2 pm, and the last one at 5 PM.

There is no information about how smooth the first sale went. However, Mi.com is hosted on a Singapore-based Amazon Web Services facility and therefore can sustain practically any amount of traffic that fans put the site through.

No reports of crashing or slowdown were reported — the biggest risk with timed sales.
