Xiaomi and Flipkart will be making 25,000 units of the Redmi 1S available for purchase on Tuesday's flash sale, which kicks off at 5pm IST for registered users.Update:
Xiaomi has revealed
that Tuesday's sale saw 25,000 smartphones go out of stock in 5 seconds, and is yet to announce the next sale date of the smartphone, or open registrations.
The two companies earlier this week revealed that they have received over 150,000 registrations for Tuesday's flash sale of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S
, which is priced at Rs. 5,999.
India cancelled the flash sale
of the Redmi Note 4G that was scheduled
for 2pm IST Tuesday, after making the handset available for the first time without registration over the Republic Day weekend from January 24 to January 26.
The next flash sale for the Redmi Note 4G will be held on February 3, instead of January 27 as revealed earlier, and the registrations for the sales are now open.
The last Redmi 1S flash sale, held on January 20, saw 30,000 units going out of stock
in 5 seconds, with the 5pm IST sale held on the same day as the Redmi Note 4G at 2pm IST - the third time the company has held two sales on the same day. The flash sale before that saw 50,000 Redmi 1S smartphones
going out of stock in just 11 seconds, and before that saw 20,000 Xiaomi Redmi 1S units went out of stock in just 4 seconds.
Xiaomi started sales of the Redmi 1S again
in December after the company received some relief from the Court to sell handsets based on Qualcomm chipsets in India.
To recall, Xiaomi's imports and sales of its smartphones were banned earlier this month with an injunction order
served by the Delhi High Court due to a plea by Ericsson, which claimed the Chinese manufacturer was infringing on its Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) and refusing to pay licensing fees.
Under the injunction order (following Xiaomi's appeal), the Chinese manufacturer was allowed to import and sell handsets that run on Qualcomm-based chipsets
, such as the Redmi 1S and Redmi Note 4G.
The dual-SIM Xiaomi Redmi 1S features a 4.7-inch 720x1280 pixel IPS-LCD display; Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with MIUI v5; 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 SoC (MSM8228); Adreno 305 GPU; 1GB of RAM; 8GB of built-in storage; expandable via microSD card (up to 32GB); 8-megapixel rear autofocus camera with flash; 1.6-megapixel front-facing camera, and 2000mAh battery.
