Xiaomi will be selling the Redmi 1s today on Flipkart at 5pm via its renowned flash sale method. Users need to be pre-registered to participate in the sale.
Xiaomi sold the Mi 3 yesterday for the final time before bringing the Mi 4 to India which will launch on January 28 and will likely go on sale on February 3. The Redmi Note 4G was also sold without flash sale during the Republic Day weekend so it won’t feature in the sale today.
On February 3, we could see the Mi 4 being sold at 2pm and either Redmi Note 4G or Redmi 1s at 5pm depending upon the response. Today, we expect around 20,000-30,000 units of Redmi 1s to go on sale as the product is quite saturated in the Indian market. In order to successfully order the device, login to Flipkart at 4:50pm (10 minutes before the sale). You can also read our Redmi 1s Review.
