With Redmi Y3 going on open sale, we hope Xiaomi does the same for its most popular smartphones in India i.e., Redmi Note 7 (review) and Redmi Note 7 Pro (review). Both the phones impressed the potential buyers all across the country; however, the flash sale model acted as a barrier. Many potential buyers who failed to get the phones even took it to Twitter to express their dismay over Xiaomi’s flash sale model.
