90,000 Xiaomi Redmi 1S Smartphones Go on Sale Tuesday via Flipkart
Xiaomi will on Tuesday hold the seventh flash sale for its Redmi 1S smartphones in India, via Flipkart. The company had announced the sale last week, after a successful sixth flash sale, and Flipkart's Big Billion Day sale the week before that.

Update: Flipkart announced that 90,000 units of the Redmi 1S will be available in the seventh flash sale on Tuesday. The company made the announcement only recently, unlike previous flash sales where Xiaomi had announced numbers as much as a week in advance.

The Flipkart registration page warns interested buyers that one smartphone will be available for sale per email ID. The sale kicks of at 2pm IST, and Flipkart is advising users to log in at least 2 hours before it begins. Notably, the company will not be bundling the screen protector and Micro-SIM card adapter it had on previous occasions.

Xiaomi had made 1,50,000 units available for Flipkart's Big Billion Day sale - the first Xiaomi sale in India not requiring registration.

The fifth flash sale saw 60,000 Redmi 1S smartphones going out of stock in 13.9 seconds. The fourth flash sale saw 60,000 Redmi 1S units going out of stock in 5.2 seconds. 40,000 smartphones went out of stock in just 3.4 seconds in the third flash sale, a good second faster than the second flash sale, which saw 40,000 smartphones go 'out of stock' in 4.5 seconds, meanwhile the first flash sale saw 40,000 units going 'out of stock' in just 4.2 seconds.

The company last week also announced an OTA (over-the-air) roll-out of a system update for the Redmi 1S, including fixes for major bugs that according to Xiaomi were reported by a large number of users.

Xiaomi's Vice President of International Operations, Hugo Barra, last week in an interview revealed the new Redmi Note can be expected to launch in India within the next two months. He said, "A date is not decided yet. Hopefully we will have devices ready to sell in the next two months."

Barra couldn't confirm an India launch date for the company's latest flagship, the Mi 4. "We don't have a date for Mi 4 yet. I am going to stick with what I said earlier which is still the plan -launch it late December 2014 or early January 2015. I don't think the Redmi Note would conflict with Mi 4 even if we launch them together."
