Flipkart Big Billion Day Sale starts tomorrow, Xiaomi Redmi 1S and Mi3 up for grabs
If you live in India, you’ve probably used Flipkart and the site offers up some killer deals although they tend to sell out fast. You may want to have your clicking finger fresh tomorrow as the Flipkart Big Billion Day sale kicks off at 8am.
The Flipkart Big Billion Day sale starts tomorrow on Flipkart, and there will be plenty of deals to be had. We already know of two devices that are getting listed, and if you’re a fan of Xiaomi, it’s good news as two of their hard to get handsets will become available.
The Xiaomi Redmi 1S will go live on Flipkart at 8am and it’s not a “Flash” sale this time around. Flipkart has 150,000 units going up on site, and you can buy them straight from the cart instead of pre-registering beforehand. Â If you’re looking for something a little bit beefier, there will also be 25,000 units of the Xiaomi Mi3 on sale as well.
As you’d expect, the Flipkart Big Billion Day sale is going to draw some attention, so we expect the Redmi 1S and Mi3 to sell out very quickly. There’s a good reason for that as the Redmi 1S has proved popular by giving customers a lot of bang for their buck. We won’t rehash the specs, but you can see how it did in our Redmi 1S vs Moto G 2nd gen showdown.
The Xiaomi Mi3 brings better specs to the table, and has been nearly impossible to get from Flipkart for some users. As mentioned yesterday, some of those 25,000 units will show up in users shopping carts if they previously tried to buy the handset 5 times or more. You’ll get notified today if you’re in the first round, and any declined devices will go into a second batch to be sold on the 6th.
The Flipkart Big Billion Day sale starts kicks off at 8am sharp, and there will be plenty of deals to go around even if you’re not interested in the Redmi 1S or Mi3. We have no doubt that the Redmi 1S will sell out within minutes again regardless of the amount of units, but it will be interesting to see how many people are still interested in the Mi3.
