Xiaomi Redmi 1S smartphone goes out of stock in 3.4 short seconds on Flipkart

This is the fastest rate at which the Xiaomi Redmi 1S units have managed to sell out seeing as the two previous sales of the device had managed to last a wee bit beyond the 4-second mark. 40000 phones were snapped up via Flipkart by eager buyers in just 3.4 seconds on September 16, leaving the unfortunate ones frustrated as usual.

The Redmi 1S handset will now again go on sale next Tuesday, that’ September 23. Those who wish to buy it then, will need to get themselves registered for the sale. At the moment, it’s not clear as to how many units of the device will be made available next week.

One of its downsides – if you consider it one – is that its software is a custom ROM built by Xiaomi, called MIUI. It is based on the Android Jelly Bean platform, and features a pretty unorthodox user interface.
