40,000 units of Xiaomi Redmi 1s sold out in 3.4 seconds; registrations for next sale starts at 6 pm today

Xiaomi Redmi 1s went on sale today at 2 pm on Flipkart and 40,000 units were only available for purchase. Registration starts at 6 pm today. To register go here, now.


As per our prediction, Xiaomi Redmi 1s was sold out again, this time in 3.4 seconds. Recent launch of Android One devices didn’t affect its sale at all. In fact it sold out faster today and it remains the most wanted device in the smartphone market after the early departure of Xiaomi Mi 3.

Xiaomi did not giveaway the Micro-SIM card sleeve and Screen Protector free of charge with today’s Redmi 1s order as it gave for the last two weeks. We guess they are out of stock.

Xiaomi has also started selling the Piston 2 headphones today and we have already reviewed them. You can check out our review here. They are out of stock now and we do not have any idea how many were in stock but expect it to be available again in few days time.

To recap on the specifications, Redmi 1s is a budget phone from Xiaomi which is priced at Rs. 5,999. It has a 4.7 inch 720P LED IPS Display with 321 ppi. It comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 MSM8228 1.6GHz processor. On the camera front, it has a 8 megapixel rear camera and 1.6 megapixel front facing camera for selfies. It comes with a 2050 mAh removable battery. It has AGC Dragontrail scratch resistant glass instead of Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Redmi 1s has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. It weighs 158 grams and is 9.9 mm in thickness. It comes with an expandable storage slot which can fit in SD cards up to 64GB. It will come preloaded with Android 4.3 JellyBean (upgradable to 4.4 Kitkat) with MIUI v5 on top. It is a dual SIM phone with only one SIM supporting 3G. You can find more about it here.

We expect another 40,000 units of Redmi 1s to be up for sale again on September 23. The registration for the next sale will start at 6 pm today. To register go here, now.
