The Flipkart page for Mi handsets is now taking registrations for the second separate flash sales for the Redmi 1S and Redmi Note 4G. The first flash sale on Tuesday will be for the Redmi Note 4G and will kick off at 2pm IST, January 13. While the second flash sale on Tuesday for the Redmi 1S will start at 5pm IST on the same day. The page also notes that every user will have to register separately for buying the two smartphones.
As before, the Xiaomi Redmi 1S will be available via Flipkart at Rs. 5,999, while the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4G will be available at Rs. 9,999, and registrations for both the smartphones that make consumers eligible to participate in the sale will end at midnight on Monday. As of now, Xiaomi has not revealed how many units of the Redmi 1S and Redmi Note 4G will be going on sale on the day. Flipkart's Mi page notes it will limit orders to one phone per registered email ID per sale.
The Chinese handset brand last week just ahead of Redmi 1S flash sale announced that the total number of handsets available this time for flash sale would be just 20,000, instead of the 40,000 revealed earlier.
The company explained the halving in a tweet and said, "This is due to an unforeseen logistics delay. We apologize for the inconvenience caused! Be assured - we will make it up in our future sales."
