Xiaomi for the first time mentions about Redmi Note on Mi India’s facebook page. As we mentioned earlier, Redmi Note went on sale in Indonesia on November 13 and is about to enter India soon.
Today, Mi India started a contest on their facebook page where the winner (s) will get Redmi Note. Xiaomi has adopted this way of promoting their devices via social media contests and teasers in the past as well, including the Mi 3 and Redmi 1s.
Tomorrow, Xiaomi will reveal a clue about when Redmi Note will go on sale followed by many more contests throughout the week. As we know, Redmi 1s will go on sale on November 25 and it might be the last time. The company prefers selling one device at a time and we already know that when Mi 3 was discontinued before the launch of Redmi 1s. It is imminent as Redmi 1s doesn’t get sold out in seconds any more and people are looking for something different now. Check out our Redmi 1s Review as well.
Thus, Redmi Note would be sold starting December 2 as Xiaomi and Flipkart sells Mi smartphones via flash sale every Tuesday at 2pm, where you need to be registered to be able to participate for the same. We are quite confident of the release date.
