After today’s sale, Xiaomi has managed to sell 490,000 units of the Redmi 1S in India through six flash sales and one Big Billion Day sale where they made 150,000 units available. Xiaomi’s Hugo Barra had earlier said that the unprecedented demand for the Xiaomi phones was overwhelming and they are putting in efforts to ensure that most customers get a phone in their cart during the flash sales.
Last week, he confirmed that Xiaomi was now comfortably placed to meet Indian demand and that its flash sales on Tuesdays won t be over in seconds any more. However, today’s sale, even with 100,000 units up for grabs, saw the sale get over in seconds again. Its first five flash sales were over in 4.2 seconds, 4.5 seconds, 3.4 seconds, 5.2 seconds, and 13.9 seconds respectively.
Xiaomi has not mentioned the number of Redmi 1S units that will be available for sale on October 21, but the registration for the sale is now open. You can register for the device here.
