The Redmi 1S is now officially launched in India by Xiaomi, well this indeed good news for those waiting for the 1S but here is one more good news, the 1S will be priced at Rs. 5,999 instead of Rs. 6,999. The sales will start on 2nd September and reregistration will start today.

Unfortunately it will not be easy to grab the Xiaomi RedMi 1S not at Rs. 6,999 and it gets even tougher at Rs. 5,999. For now I am not sure how many units Xiaomi will put up on sales – they will follow the same process i.e. registration for the flash sale. The 1S will be available from 2nd September, and if you need it register today.

This handset is running MiUi on a 4.7 inch screen with HD resolution. It is dual SIM and housing the qualcomm MSM8228 quad core chipset clocked at 1.6GHz with Adreno 305 GPU. There is 8MP rear AF camera and 1.6MP front camera.

The RedMi 1S comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB storage plus micro SD card support of up to 64GB. Key features are 3G, 2G, W-Fi, GPS (GLONASS) and Bluetooth. The 1S gets power from 2000 mAh battery.

Xiaomi Redmi S1 will start selling in September

Well watch out for more on the RedMi 1S you might want to register for the sale if you are interested. So next week on 2nd it will be Mi3 and 1S sales together, not sure if Flipkart will be able to handle the load.

The Xiaomi Mi3 sales will start from 2PM today. Do let us know if you managed to get one.
