Xiaomi Redmi 1S listed on Flipkart, launch evident?

The Mi3 was the first smartphone from Xiaomi to be available for purchase in India and looks like the Redmi 1S will be next. The Xiaomi Redmi 1S was announced for India along with the Mi3 and it has just been listed on Flipkart, though, without any price or availability details. The registrations to buy the Redmi 1S might start as soon as this week. We think that Xiaomi will follow the same ‘flash sales’  strategy to sell the Redmi 1S. Earlier, Hugo Barra had shared some information about the tentative launch dates of Redmi 1S, Redmi Note, Mi4 and MiPad.

Xiaomi Redmi 1S Listed On Flipkart

We feel that the Redmi 1S has higher sales potential when compared to the Mi3 because it is priced below Rs 10,000 mark and it is equipped with dual-SIM card slots. Priced at Rs 6,999, the Redmi 1S comes with a 4.7-inch IPS LCD screen with 720p HD resolution, 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage (further expandable via a microSD card slot) and Android 4.3 JellyBean (it might be launched with Android 4.4.2 KitKat). It has an 8MP camera at the back which can record full HD 1080p videos and a 1.6MP camera on the front. When this dual-SIM Android smartphone launches exclusively on Flipkart, it would give a tough fight to Asus Zenfone 4, Motorola Moto E and Micromax Unite 2.

Now there will be another flagship operating system from China,name,technology not known yet.The operating system claims that it will overcomes windows,android and ios platforms and it will replace these existing platforms in desktops as well as in mobile phones.it will be launched within one year.
If my opinion is correct it will be a open platform like linux with increased security features. Hardware manufacturers support both inside and outside is also critical for them for a rollout.
hhmmm…wow wow wow the boy started it’s match…

*Now where does marketing come into place? I am not promoting China nor do I believe in boundaries. All I want to say is that the OS is being made from a security point of view. The Chinese want to have full control over their data that’s why is the OS being developed in the first place. The government does not have any intention to license this OS at least in the near term. If someone wants genuine security the OS has to be closed source. Open source and security are two things which can never happen simultaneously. You have… Read more »

*Not angry really but hey I really don’t believe in borders and my affinity for Xiaomi should not be mistaken as my love for China. All I wanted to say is that the OS made by the government is not meant to compete with other platforms but is being developed for personal use. This is also being done because OSes like Windows and Android are made by companies like Microsoft and Google both of which are US based and dominant in the PC and smartphone industry. They have tensions with US and want to make sure that none of their… Read more »

Hey friend,i meant only a appreciation as you are very well informed about latest changes in technology. I have never been mistaken your knowledge as love for China. You see my nickname is apple lover but it doesn’t means that i am a US fan,i love their technologies and innovations but at the same time i wish what i love in US should also come to our country,manufactured and developed in India.

Rama,you actually from Chennai or from China?
You are really very enthusiastic in Chinese marketing’s.
Rama,how could they make their OS a success under closed platform?I think they are going to give out it globally.
If we take example of Windows here,windows became a hit and winner because they are getting such a support and acceptance from various sourcing otherwise only Linux platform be a sure winner and in mobile phones Android became the winner.
