The last two flash sales have seen a shift in tradition, where the Redmi 1S, unlike the previous flash sales, has not gone out of stock in seconds. This could be due to the customer fatigue in the Xiaomi device but the company’s India head Manu Jain maintains that the demand for the product is still high. Just like the previous times, Flipkart suggests users to remain online at least two hours prior to the commencement of the sale. Only one device is being sold per registered user in each sale.

Xiaomi did not disclose last week’s number of devices that were made available during the flash sale. Therefore, apart from the last week’s sale, the company has sold over 580,000 units of the Redmi 1s in India, of which 150,000 units were sold on Flipkart s Big Billion Day sale. Only registered members will be able to participate in the sale. Another thing worth mentioning is that much like last week, this time too, the Redmi 1S buyers won t be receiving the complimentary screen protector and micro-SIM adapter.
The Redmi 1S sports a 4.7-inch screen with 720p screen resolution. It is powered by a quad-core 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 MSM8228 processor paired with 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. It has an 8-megapixel camera on the back and a 1.6-megapixel shooter upfront. Powered by Android 4.3 JellyBean, the phone has MIUI version 5 skin running on top of it.
