Xiaomi has shifted their focus on Redmi 1S and the sales of Xiaomi Mi3 has be suspended for now. The next flash sale will be for the Redmi 1S at a price of Rs. 5,999. The good news is that this time Xiaomi will have about 40,000 units, well I guess it will still go out of stock in seconds.
Surprisingly Xiaomi has stopped the Mi3 sales and there is no confirmation if they will start it again. It seems the buzz is now on the 1S and then later, on the Redmi Note. Most likely in December Xiaomi might get the Mi4 in India. There will be 40K Redmi 1S for the 2nd September sale – Xiaomi has confirmed this on their Facebook page.
The Xiaomi Redmi 1S is powered by qualcomm snapdragon 8228 1.6GHz quad core processor. It sports a 4.7 inch screen with HD resolution. There is 1GB RAM and 8GB storage. The 1S comes with 8MP rear camera and 1.6MP front camera.
This is a dual SIM handset with 3G support. It comes loaded with basic sensors (light, proximity, accelerometer) plus the magnetic sensor. There is 2050 mAh battery. The 1S is priced at a very tempting Rs. 5,999. Review coming soon (before 2nd).
