40,000 Xiaomi Redmi 1S Smartphones to Go on Sale via Flipkart on Tuesday

xiaomi redmi1s rear officialXiaomi’s budget Redmi 1S smartphone, priced at Rs. 5,999, will be available in its second flash sale in India starting 2pm IST on Tuesday at Flipkart for registered users.

Xiaomi has already confirmed that 40,000 Redmi 1S units will be again available for sale on Tuesday’s flash sale.

Xiaomi, continuing the flash sale trend started with the Mi 3, had sold the entire 40,000 units inventory in 4.2-seconds last week, and once again, there were thousands of unhappy Xiaomi consumers who never got their hands on the device.

Flipkart, the exclusive online retailer of Xiaomi handsets in India, now claims that over 300,000 people have registered for the second flash sale of the Redmi 1S. The Flipkart page clearly notes that “Registrations will not be carried over. You need to register again for next sale.” Considering that limited stocks of the Redmi 1S will be available in India, the popular e-commerce giant has revealed that it will limit orders to one phone per registered email ID per sale.

Last week, Hugo Barra, Vice President of Xiaomi Global had revealed that the Redmi 1S would come with a complimentary Micro SIM-card adapter and a screen protector, and that orders will be delivered in 7-10 business days. The Flipkart page notes, “Freebies will be delivered separately post your handset shipments.”

The company, also referred to as ‘China’s Apple’, had reportedly discontinued the Mi 3 in India to focus on the Redmi 1S.

The dual-SIM Xiaomi Redmi 1S features a 4.7-inch 720×1280 pixel IPS-LCD display; Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with MIUI v5; 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC (MSM8228); Adreno 305 GPU; 1GB of RAM; 8GB of built-in storage; expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB); 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera with flash; 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera, and 2000mAh battery.
