60,000 Xiaomi Redmi 1S smartphone units up for grabs

Those frustrated with the 'limited' 40,000 Redmi 1S smartphone stocks offered during the earlier flash sales now have lots to cheer about, as Xiaomi will be offering 60,000 Redmi 1S smartphones during the latest flash sale.

Gauging earlier flash sale trends, Xiaomi's Redmi 1S is also expected to sell out in seconds in the fourth flash sale. The smartphone was reportedly sold out in less than five seconds in Xiaomi's earlier flash sales.

A majority of people have also criticised Xiaomi's 'marketing approach' of conducting flash sales over Flipkart.

However, all these frustrations could be put to rest during Xiaomi's fourth flash sale during which a minimum of 60,000 Redmi 1S units are expected to go up for grabs.

Key hardware aspects of Xiaomi Redmi 1S

Xiaomi's Redmi 1S is certainly a 'value for money' smartphone considering its fairly mid-range hardware aspects, and the INR5,999 (£60, $100) price tag.

The smartphone incorporates a 4.7in IPS display, runs on the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean operating platform, and is driven by a 1.6GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor along with 1GB RAM.

Redmi 1S also features an 8MP primary camera and a 1.6MP secondary camera. The device also provides users 8GB internal storage that is expandable up to 32GB via an external microSD card.

A 2,000 mAh battery powers the entire Xiaomi Redmi 1S smartphone.

Considering the fact that 'value for money' devices are embraced in India, Xiaomi Redmi 1S challenges the recently released Android One smartphones that have a sub INR6,000 price tag, and the Motorola E that is priced at INR7,000 (£70, $116).
