Xiaomi is finally offering 60,000 units of Redmi 1s for the fourth flash sale on September 23. Previously, the Chinese company offered 40,000 units each on the last three sales and they were sold out in seconds like hot cakes.
With the festive season coming, it was bound to happen and also makes sence considering super high demand. Mi India also promises more stocks in future. But the big question is – Will the Xiaomi Mi 3 make a comeback this festive season after it was discontinued for an indefinite period? If it doesn’t make a come back by the next month, then we will be looking at the launch of Redmi Note followed by the arrival of Xiaomi Mi 4 in India.
Earlier this week, Android One program was launched by Google with three OEMs on board and more to follow, will not have any impact on the market of Xiaomi. We believe the consumer base for both these brands are different and both will continue to sell in good numbers. Android One would eventually take the lead in budget smartphone segment as they have more inventory and they would also be available in offline retail stores starting early October. On the other hand, Xiaomi has to manage with limited resources and high demand.
So, if you are looking to buy a Redmi 1s for yourself or gift it to your loved ones this festive season, register now by clicking here. Although there are more number of units available, the demand will also be more than usual. We would also like people to stop black marketing of the Redmi 1s and allow genuine buyers to buy it.
