Hi, Mi Fans,

Xiaomi is known for breaking records, bringing innovation with aggressive pricing and value for money is what made it a No. 1 smartphone brand in the Indian smartphone market. Interestingly, Xiaomi is also now #1 phone of the country, #1 in smart wearables, and #1 in smart TV brand. Recently in #StoryOfXiaomi, we discussed on varied topics, including Xiaomi became Number 1 Smartphone Brand in India, how Mi 3 crashed India’s biggest E-commerce site and how Redmi Note 4G sped up India’s 4G Era. This brings us to another great product Redmi 1S - the first member of the most loved Redmi series.

When it was launched, the device was in great demand. It was so loved that on every sale, it went out of stock within a few seconds. It offered great specs at an aggressive price. The smartphones with the same specs as that of Redmi 1S were available twice that price. This was the beginning to bring a new revolution in the smartphone industry.
