The Chinese company, unlike previous occasions, has stopped revealing details about the number of Mi 4 units going on sale in the flash sale. The company did not provide figures of how many units were up for sale last week or how fast they went out of stock. This will be the second time the 64GB variant will be offered in India alone, without the 16GB variant being sold alongside.
Considering that there are limited stocks of the Mi 4 64GB, Flipkart notes that it will limit orders to one phone per registered email ID per sale. It's worth pointing out that Flipkart's procedure requires people to just add the handset to their cart for it to be classified as 'sold out', and people are given additional time to complete their purchase.
The first flash sale saw the Mi 4 64GB model going out of stock in a minute while the company never announced how fast the 16GB variant went out of stock. In February, Xiaomi announced that the Mi 4 16GB in India would be sold via Flipkart without registration.

To recall, the 16GB Xiaomi Mi 4 (Review | Pictures) is priced at Rs. 19,999, while the 64GB Mi 4 is priced at Rs. 23,999. The Xiaomi Mi 4 runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with the company's MIUI 6 skin on top. It is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz alongside 3GB of RAM. The Mi 4 sports the same 5-inch full-HD display (1080x1920 pixels) found on the Mi 3; although this time the company has used a JDI OGS full lamination display. There is a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera on the Xiaomi Mi 4, with both sporting Sony's stacked CMOS sensors. The smartphone is backed by a 3080mAh Li-ion battery.
