Very much like the wave the Mi3 smartphone Xiaomi created in India just a month ago, today, the second flash sale of the Redmi 1S smartphone was put up on a flash sale and all 40,000 units got sold out in just 4.5 seconds.
The handset was available exclusively via online retailer Flipkart. Apparently, reports online suggest that no less than 3,000,000 users registered for the device, though only a small portion of them actually got hold of it.
The smartphone which comes with a very standard value composition is priced at Rs. 5,999 and since the second flash sale has already closed down, the company has also announced via Twitter to avail the next batch of Redmi 1S on September 16 for which the registration will open at 6:00PM today.
