Amazon listing accidentally leaks pricing details of Xiaomi's Mi A3
In a major gaffe, the e-commerce giant made the product page live, revealing key details about the handset, ahead of its official launch on August 21.
And though Amazon was quick to remove the page, tipster Ishan Agarwal was quicker to make the entire information public.
Here's what went down.
Kind of official
Here's a look at the pricing details of Mi A3
According to the listing, Mi A3 will cost Rs. 14,998 for the entry-level 4GB/64GB model and Rs. 17,498 for the maxed-out 6GB/128GB variant.
