The eighth flash sale for the Xiaomi Redmi 1S smartphone will happen on Flipkart tomorrow at 2pm IST. Indian customers who are interested in the handset but haven’t registered to take part in the sale should click here to register.
Xiaomi hasn’t announced the number of Redmi 1S smartphones that will be available for purchase tomorrow. But the company is advising that the customers should be logged in 2-3 hours before the start of the sale. And there will only be one unit available on sale per customer.
90.000 units of the Redmi 1S were sold in the last flash sale on Flipkart. But for the first time the company did not announce the time it took for the device to go ‘out of stock’. In the previous six flash sales, the device was sold out in seconds. Is this a sign that the demand for the device has come down? The device, as you might have heard, has had some performance issues. Maybe those problems are keeping many customers away from the device.
