Xiaomi has announced that the eleventh flash sale of the budget Redmi 1S will see 65,000 units going on sale on Tuesday.
The next flash sale on Tuesday will kick off at 2pm IST on Flipkart for registered users. Interestingly, this is the second flash sale that will see up to 65,000 Redmi 1S units going on sale. Last flash sale also saw 65,000 Redmi 1S units going on sale on November 11.
Xiaomi's Hugo Barra, Vice President of International Operations, recently confirmed that the Redmi Note India launch is next. He said, "Redmi Note coming to India next."
Considering that the Chinese brand is gearing up to launch the new Note phablet in India, we can expect that the ongoing sale might be among the last few flash sales of the Redmi 1S.
Notably, the company will be offering a complimentary screen protector and Micro-SIM card adapter with the handset in this flash sale, unlike the previous sale.
Flipkart, the exclusive online retailer of Xiaomi handsets in India, claims that over 2,00,000 people have registered for the eleventh flash sale of the Redmi 1S, priced at Rs. 5,999.
The Flipkart page suggests consumers to register for each flash sale separately and notes, "Those who've registered for the Nov 11 sale but missed out, also need to register."
Considering that limited stocks of the Redmi 1S (Review | Pictures) will be available in India, the popular e-commerce giant has revealed that it will limit orders to one phone per registered email ID per sale.
It's worth pointing out that Flipkart's procedure requires people to just add the handset to their cart for it to be classified as 'sold out', and people are given additional time to complete their purchase.
The Chinese company did not announce the time taken for the Redmi 1S to go 'out of stock' in the last four flash sales, which might be a sign of fading demand for the Xiaomi Redmi 1S, after the first six flash sales saw thousands of smartphones being snapped up in seconds.
