Xiaomi manages to sell 40000 Redmi 1S units in just 4.2 seconds

Following the footsteps of the high-end Mi 3 is the Xiaomi Redmi 1S which too seems to be set for ultra-fast stock clearances, as the first 40000 units were snapped up earlier today in just about 4.2 seconds. This mid-range phone comes at an extremely affordable price if its specs are to be considered and it will be put up on sale again next week on September 9.

The Xiaomi Redmi 1S has its price set at just Rs 5999, and we’d be lying if we say we didn’t expect it to go out of stock in a matter of seconds. The company’s flash sale model is to be blamed for this. New units are brought in every week to keep the sale limited and exclusive, thus increasing the value of the products.

Same was the case with the Xiaomi Mi 3 which had once sold out in just 2 seconds. While the said model has been temporarily discontinued, it’s now time for the Redmi 1S to enjoy its share of the limelight.
