The online sales on eCommerce biggies like Amazon India and Flipkart ahead of the festive season are proving fruitful for consumer electronic brands. Xiaomi which had earlier claimed that it had sold over 1.5 million devices during the first few hours of sales on the online platforms has now claimed that it sold more than 2.5 lakh Mi TVs during the first few days of the season sale on Amazon and Flipkart. The company also said that the Mi TV remains the highest-selling TV on Amazon and Flipkart during the shopping festival.
