40,000 Xiaomi Redmi 1S Units to Go on Sale via Flipkart on September 16



Xiaomi has announced that 40,000 Redmi 1S units will be going on sale for the third flash sale next week on Flipkart. The company, also referred to as China’s Apple, in a Facebook post on Fridayconfirmed the number of units, and said, “Want to own 1 of the 40,000 Redmi 1S available next week on Sept 16th? Register now at mi.com/in!”

Xiaomi’s new budget smartphone, priced at Rs. 5,999, has been once again breaking sales records with the entire inventory going out of stock within seconds.Earlier this week, 40,000 Redmi 1S (Review | Pictures) smartphones in the second flash sale went ‘out of stock’ in 4.5 seconds.

Notably, the first flash sale for Redmi 1S saw 40,000 units going ‘out of stock’ in just 4.2 seconds.


The Chinese smartphone manufacturer, also known as ‘China’s Apple’, has enjoyed much success in India with its flash sale model in the past, selling over 95,000 Mi 3 smartphones since its launch in late-July.

Flipkart, the exclusive online retailer of Xiaomi handsets in India, had claimed that over 300,000 people had registered for the second flash sale of the Redmi 1S.

The Flipkart page has been lately suggesting consumers to register for each flash sale separately and notes, “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.

Recently, reports had indicated Xiaomi had discontinued sales of the Mi 3 in India, but when NDTV Gadgets spoke to Manu Jain, Head of Xiaomi India, he clarified that the reports were off the mark

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.
