Micromax’s subsidiary brand, Yu had a week back launched its cheapest phone – Yu Yunique – at Rs 4,999 and yesterday it went on sale on Snapdeal.
Yu claimed that Yu Yunique was sold out on Snapdeal in just nine seconds, but the company did not reveal about the number of units that it made available for the flash sale. When contacted by TMI, both Yu and Snapdeal declined to share the numbers.
However, sources familiar with the development told The Mobile Indian that around 5,000 Yu Yunique units were put up for sale for Tuesday’s flash sale. Yu is aiming to sell around five lakh units of Yunique by this Diwali.
The next flash sale for Yu Yunique will be held on September 22 on Snapdeal at 12 pm. Apart from that, Yu Yunique’s has started a new after sale service model wherein a customer can physically visit any one of its 825 authorized service centers across more than 600 cities in case they have any issue with their device. Earlier offline support was not there for Yu devices, support was in the form of reverse pick up and online support. The company plans to extend this service to all the other Yu smartphones as well.
