It is the 16th and the next Redmi 1S flash sale will commence from 2PM onwards today on Flipkart. The handset is priced at Rs. 5,999 and about 40,000 units are available. As usual there are over 3 Lakh users who have registered for the sale.

Before you jump in, do note that there are issues with the Redmi 1S handset as already pointed on in my review, though the issues can be fixed via software updates, so far a fix has not been rolled out. There are some updates that are being tested.

Heat-up and camera app crashes are something common. It would be better to wait and see if the issues are fixed, but in case you don’t want to miss this opportunity go ahead. Only those who registered can buy the handset. It looks like for this sale buyers will not get the complimentary screen guard and micro SIM adapter.

Let us know if you managed to get one, or it went out of stock as soon as you hit the buy button. Buy (try ordering) the Redmi 1S from Flipkart.
