The Flipkart registration page notes that only one smartphone will be available for sale per email ID and also advises users to log in at least 2 hours before the flash sale begins.

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.

The last flash sale saw 1,00,000 Redmi 1S (Review | Pictures) units going on sale, which was an increase of 40,000 units compared to the last flash sale that saw 60,000 being made available.

It's worth mentioning that the company did not announce the time taken for the Redmi 1S to go 'out of stock' in the last three flash sales, which might be a sign of fading demand for the Xiaomi Redmi 1S, after the first six flash sales saw thousands of smartphones being snapped up in seconds.

The company's budget Redmi 1S smartphone, priced at Rs. 5,999, 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.

Recently, a market research firm claimed that Xiaomi replaced Huawei to become the third-largest mobile phone vendor in terms of smartphones sold in the third quarter. However, Lenovo soon after announced its acquisition of Motorola was complete, propelling it to the number three spot with combined sales. According to market researcher, Xiaomi sold 19 million smartphones in Q3 this year to leave behind Huawei who sold 16.8 million smartphones in the same period.
