Xiaomi Redmi 1S
Xiaomi's Revenue Doubles to $12 Billion as Phone Sales TripleXiaomi India

Chinese smartphone maker, Xiaomi is all set for the third flash sale of Redmi 1S on 16 September at Flipkart.

The company has confirmed that there will be up to 40,000 units up for grabs on Tuesday's flash sale at Flipkart and more than 300,000 prospective consumers have already registered for the Redmi 1S.

All previous flash sales of Redmi 1S have gotten over in a few seconds, but Tuesday's sale is expected to be a little different as Google on Monday (15 September) launched the much anticipated feature-rich Android One smartphones (from Micromax, Karbonn Mobiles and Spice) in India.

All three brands have already begun selling the devices with their respective online partners with prices ranging between ₹6,000 and ₹7,000. [Full report, HERE]

Frustrated Xiaomi fans, who were unable to get their hands on Redmi 1S in the last two flash sales, might get strayed to the new Android One devices, which come with pure stock Android OS and decent hardware specifications and fall in the same price range.

For the uninitiated, Xiaomi Redmi 1S costs just ₹5,999 and features 4.7-inch IPS LCD screen with 720x1280p resolution, making it the cheapest HD phone in the Indian market.

Under the hood, it comes packed with Android v4.3 Jelly Bean OS (with custom MIUI), 1.6GHz Snapdragon CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB inbuilt memory (expandable up to 32GB) and a 2,000 mAh battery.

[Note: Registration window for 16 September flash sale is still open; it closes Monday mid-night and the sale will take-off on Tuesday 2:00 pm afternoon at Flipkart]
