Xiaomi Redmi 1S handset up for sale on Flipkart for the seventh time

As has been the tradition for the past six weeks, the Xiaomi Redmi 1S will be going on sale this week as well, although the number of units which Flipkart will be making available is still unknown. This is of course, the seventh flash sale for the smartphone that has seen immense demand in India; so much so that its stocks don’t even manage to last for a minute after going live.

Xiaomi and Flipkart had announced this sale last week itself, and had opened registrations for it as well. Interested parties need to visit the registration page, and enroll themselves for the sale before starting to hope that when the device does go live, they manage to snap a model up for themselves.
