60,000 Xiaomi Redmi 1S Smartphones Go on Sale via Flipkart on Tuesday
Xiaomi has finally decided to increase the number of Redmi 1S units to 60,000 for the budget phone's fourth flash sale on Tuesday, kicking off at 2pm IST at Flipkart for registered users.

Notably, this is the first flash sale that will see up to 60,000 Redmi 1S units going on sale, an increase of 20,000 units compared to previous occasions which saw 40,000 being made available.

Flipkart, the exclusive online retailer of Xiaomi handsets in India, claims that over 350,000 people have registered for the fourth flash sale of the Redmi 1S, which priced at Rs. 5,999.

The Flipkart page suggests consumers to register for each flash sale separately and notes, "Registrations will not be carried over. You need to register again for next sale."

Considering that limited stocks of the Redmi 1S (Review | Pictures) will be available in India, the popular e-commerce giant has revealed that it will limit orders to one phone per registered email ID per sale.

Xiaomi is also bundling a Micro SIM-card adapter and a screen protector with the Redmi 1S, and notes that orders will be delivered in 7-10 business days.

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.

As of now, Flipkart has cumulatively seen 120,000 Redmi 1S units going out of stock in 12.1 seconds in its 3 flash sales thus far, according to the details revealed by the Xiaomi.

The Redmi 1S went out of stock in just 3.4 seconds in the third flash sale, a good second faster than the second flash sale, which saw 40,000 smartphones go 'out of stock' in 4.5 seconds, while the first flash sale saw 40,000 units going 'out of stock' in just 4.2 seconds.

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.
