Xiaomi Redmi 1S Arrives in PH for Php5,599

One of Xiaomi's smartphone offerings the Redmi 1S is officially coming to the Philippines starting September 4 at noon and exclusively through Lazada online store just like how the Mi 3 smartphone first arrived in the country. Mi 3 was a success then that the first 3,000 units were sold out in couple of hour. With that being said we can assume that this Redmi 1S, since it offers nice set of specs and very attractive price tag, is most likely going to have a similar fate. So if you plan to get one you make sure to save the date and be in front of your computer right before 12PM strikes on Sept 4. Plus Xiaomi did not mention how many units will initially be available on first launch.

One of the questions that was asked during the Philippine announcement of the Xiaomi Redmi 1S headed by Hugo Barra was if the company has a plan of setting up physical stores in the country, the answer was actually NO. That's because Xiaomi aims to boost e-commerce in the PH and also to eliminate additional cost of setting up stores in the country or fees to middlemen to do the job and other extra marketing fees. The reason is very acceptable as we see how the Chinese company prices its devices. See the specs below offered by Xiaomi redmi 1S smartphone and you decide if the price of Php5,599 is very reasonable for what it offers.
