Recently Xiaomi has launched its latest phablet, the Xiaomi Redmi Note in India and it went on flash sale for first time on December 2. Now company has announced that their entry level smartphone, Xiaomi Redmi 1S will be available on Flipkart without any flash sale on December 8, and you also dont need to pre-register yourself to buy this device as well.
As we haven’t seen Xiaomi selling two smartphone’s at same time in India so we weren’t expecting Xiaomi to make Redmi 1S available for sale anytime soon, but it seems company has something else in their mind. As there is no pre-registration is required which means anyone can order this phone which also means it will be available till stock last, it could be a strategy of company to sell remaining units in India, it also suggest that it could be the last sale of Xiaomi Redmi 1S.
