Xiaomi has unnerved many Tech enthusiasts in India, with its solid smartphones at surprisingly low prices. the Company which is known for selling its products, up till only smartphones, launched online its Xiaomi Mi 3 smartphone In July and saw the Xiaomi Mi 3 Stock, gone in 5 seconds! . Buoyed by the response, the Chinese maker, who in the past has amazed even US Tech journalists with their quality at that price point, is going to launch its entry-level smartphone, Xiaomi Redmi 1S , on September 02 . Courtesy its previous announcements, India is also awaiting the start of registration of Redmi Note, but we’re still not hearing word on that.

Since, the stock is always limited, all those who register don’t get the smartphone. The moment the stock is over, the online window is quietly curtained down.
