Xiaomi has once again surprised everyone by cutting down the price of the Redmi 1s prior to opening the registrations. Before it’s launch in India, Xiaomi announced the price to be ₹ 6,999/- , which by itself is pretty cheap for the specifications of the phone. Starting 6 PM today, you can register for the sale happening on 2nd September. It will be available at a price of ₹ 5,999 /- exclusively on Flipkart.com
It has to be noted that no other smartphone with similar specs comes anywhere close to this price range. Redmi 1s has a 4.7 inch 720p IPS display and powered by a 1.3 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor coupled with a 1GB RAM. Coming to storage , it’ll be having an internal storage of 16GB , and a micro SD card slot which supports cards unto 64GB. It runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Xiaomi’s MIUI layer on top. The rear camera is 8 Megapixel and the front camera is 1.6 Megapixel.
Given the price and the assurance that MIUI V6 will be made available for the device, it is a must buy if you’re at the same price point. There are a couple of other phones by Xiaomi as well which are worth mentioning.
