Fourth Xiaomi Redmi 1S smartphone flash sale on Flipkart ends in mere seconds

Even with 60000 units of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S going up for grabs through Flipkart this week, it took just mere seconds for the flash sale to end. According to the official figure from the OEM, the entire inventory went out of stock in just 5.2 seconds which isn’t surprising at all.

This isn’t the fastest sale we’ve seen for the Xiaomi Redmi 1S in India, but it shows that there still is a lot of demand for the smartphone. Based on the number of devices which have been put up for grabs through Flipkart since September 2, we estimate that a total of 180000 units have been sold so far.
