    As Micromax's Yu brand celebrates the quick sale of its Yureka smartphone on Amazon India, Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi has announced that it sold 50,000 units of the Redmi Note 4G in 2 minutes and 50 seconds.
    Xiaomi's India head of operations, Manu Kumar Jain tweeted, "50K x Redmi Note 4G were made available today. We went out of stock in 2 mins, 50 secs. Thank you for your love & support @MiIndiaOfficial."
    A few hours later, after the 5pm sale of RedMi 1S, he said that the company had sold 50,000 units of the budget phone in 11 seconds.
    So overall, Flipkart and Xiaomi sold 1 lakh phones on Tuesday with a few hours.
    "Today's sale of Redmi 1S: 50K units were made available. Went out of stock within 11 seconds. Thank you Mi fans for your love and support," Jain tweeted around 6pm.
    While the Micromax owned Yu brand has just started selling the Yureka, which was sold out within 3 seconds, Xiaomi has already ramped up production of its products and offered 50,000 units of both the Redmi Note 4G and the Redmi 1s smartphones in India.
    In the case of the Redmi Note 4G, the company has also started offline sales in partnership with telecom operator Bharti Airtel.
    The Redmi Note 4G was first offered on December 30, 2014. The phone has a 5.5-inch 720p display and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 2GB RAM. It has 8GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card slot. Unlike the 3G version of the phone, it is a single SIM smartphone. On the back, it has a 13-megapixel camera, while on the front it has a 5-megapixel camera. It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat with MiUI running on top.
    Compared to the Yu Yureka, it has a slightly older processor and has lesser memory. It is also slightly more expensive atRs.9,999 and is a single SIM product. Xiaomi is expected to unveil the successor of the Redmi Note later this week at an event in Beijing, China.

    Not entirely sure, but I think they do... I often buy stuffs from Flipkart with recent one being Redmi Note (which I gifted). They do provide genuine invoice for each purchase.
