Last week s sale saw 50,000 units of the Redmi Note 4G go out of stock in five seconds. At 5.00PM, nearly 40,000 units of the Redmi 1S were initially scheduled to go on sale, but last minute it was cut down to only 20,000 due to logistics delay, and the Redmi 1S went out of stock in flat four seconds. Flipkart suggests all registered users to be online two to three hours before the sale, to up their chances to grab the device.
The decision to sell two handsets on the same day came as a celebratory feat for Xiaomi, who recently announced it sold 1 million smartphones in India in five months. However, the company has now decided to continue the trend.
The company has seen many ups and downs in this short span, with the High Court issuing a ban on its handsets sale earlier this month. Later, the ban was partially lifted, allowing Xiaomi to restore its flash sales for devices running on Qualcomm s chipsets.
