Xiaomi Redmi 1S to Go on Sale via Flipkart on Tuesday; 1,00,000 Units Up for Grabs
Xiaomi has announced that the ninth flash sale of the budget Redmi 1S will see 1,00,000 units going on sale on November 4. The Chinese handset maker revealed the number of units on Twitter.

The next flash sale on Tuesday will kick off at 2pm IST on Flipkart for registered users. Notably, the flash sale will see up to 1,00,000 Redmi 1S units going on sale, an increase of 40,000 units compared to the last flash sale that saw 60,000 being made available.

Interestingly, Xiaomi was touting the Redmi 1S' next flash sale on Twitter and said, "Haven't been able to get your hands on Redmi 1S? Fear not, something special is coming your way on 4th November!"

This is the third flash sale for Redmi 1S, priced at Rs. 5,999, that will see more than 60,000 units going on sale. The other two instances saw 1,00,000 units going on sale in the sixth flash sale and 90,000 units going on sale in the seventh.

It's worth mentioning that the company did not announce the time taken for the Redmi 1S to go 'out of stock' in the last two 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.

The Flipkart registration page notes that only one smartphone will be available for sale per email ID and also advises users to log in at least 2 hours before the flash sale begins.

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 company's budget Redmi 1S smartphone follows in the Mi 3's footsteps for breaking sales records with the entire inventory going out of stock within seconds in previous flash sales.

On Wednesday, a market research firm claimed that Xiaomi replaced Huawei to become the third-largest mobile phone vendor in terms of smartphones sold in the third quarter. According to market researcher, Xiaomi sold 19 million smartphones in Q3 this year to leave behind Huawei who sold 16.8 million smartphones in the same period.
