Xiaomi Mi 4 to debut through flash sale in South Africa

MIA (Mobiles In Africa) today confirmed that the Xiaomi Mi 4, the company’s first flagship phone to arrive in South Africa, will be sold via a flash sale.

Flash sales aren’t all that popular in South Africa, but have been a staple for the likes of Xiaomi, Micromax and OnePlus retailing their devices in China and India. Along with offering fans the chance to obtain limited stock, it also builds hype for the brand.
