Xiaomi Redmi 1S pre-registrations to begin today; Sale expected on August 29

While the Xiaomi Mi3 is notorious in India for going out of stock quickly, the company seems to be gearing up for the release of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S.


Xiaomi has teased a new announcement scheduled for today. While it was quite secretive about the announcement, the handset in the image could hint the release of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S, which is the company’s most affordable Android smartphone priced at just Rs. 6999. Considering that Xiaomi had mentioned a late August timeline for the launch, we can expect the sale to be held on August 29 itself.

We can expect pre-registrations for the Xiaomi Redmi 1S sale to begin today. While the Mi3 was close to impossible to purchase, we can expect the situation for the Redmi 1S to be even worse considering the price point. With more demand than the supply, it’s probably going to be one big task to get the device, so start stacking your lucky charms.
