Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi is all geared to kick-start the Redmi 1S flash sale in India on Tuesday.
Official online seller Flipkart has confirmed to host Redmi 1S flash sale at 5pm on 27 January. However, there are no details on how many units will be up for grabs and also whether Redmi Note 4G will be made available on Flipkart like last week.
Flipkart is already been selling the feature-rich Xiaomi phablet for past three days without any registration process. Our intuitive guess is that the company might wait for 26 January's sale to conclude and evaluate the options for Tuesday's (27 January) sale based on the availability of the stocks.
[Update: Flipkart has just announced that there will be up to 25,000 units of Redmi 1S and there will no Redmi Note 4G for sale on 27 January]
The company has always been announcing inventory capacity details a little late in the evening prior to the next day's flash sale. We will update more on this to you, once the official notification comes out of the company.
Coming back to Redmi 1S flash sale, prospective consumers are supposed to get registered at Flipkart [HERE] to become eligible to buy the phone.
In a related development, Xiaomi is also hosting Mi3 flash sale on Monday, 26 January for one last time on Flipkart, just a couple of days ahead of its successor Mi4's official launch in India on 28 January.
