Xiaomi Redmi 1s Lazada Philippines Flash Sale Registration Guide and Details

Hot on the heels of its very successful Xiaomi Redmi 1s launch sale held last September 4, 2014, Lazada Philippines - due to insistent public demand - will be holding a follow-up flash sale of the best-selling entry-level powerhouse by the Chinese electronics company, giving more Pinoys a chance to own the handset.

Xiaomi Redmi 1s Philippines, Lazada Xiaomi
Priced at only Php 5,599, Xiaomi Redmi 1s gives great value for money as it comes with above average technical specifications and features for a device in its price echelon and runs Xiaomi's very own MIUI interface, which is not only smooth and beautiful but also very intuitive.

One thing different about this upcoming flash sale - happening on September 12, 2014 ~ that's this coming Friday - compared to the ones Lazada has done before is that they will be requiring all interested buyers to register and registration will only be allowed until Thursday - September 11, 2014 - at exactly 11:59 PM. I believe Lazada will be implementing this process to give everyone a better chance at purchasing the smartphone.

Here's the Registration Procedure for those who already have a Lazada Philippines account:

Just a few reminders:

1. Only users who register before September 12, will get the chance to buy a Redmi 1S.
2. Pre-registration does not guarantee the purchase of a Redmi 1S. Fastest fingers still prevail on September 12, 12PM.
3. There will be no commitment to buy a Redmi 1S once registered.

Xiaomi Redmi 1s In A Nutshell c/o TP

"Xiaomi Redmi 1s is an entry-level device. But I believe that's only true in terms of its price; Because for a device donning such an affordable SRP, the smartphone truly has a lot to offer in terms of technical specifications, features, and overall mobile experience.

Although - in my eyes - it's not particularly the cutest nor the most beautiful handset around, the Redmi 1s (known as Hongmi 1s in China) nonetheless gives budget conscious consumers an opportunity to experience all the cool innovations of the company's MIUI user interface (that geeks are raving about) on a device with decent features -- headlined by the 4.7 inch HD IPS display, 8 MegaPixel autofocus camera with LED flash and BSI sensor, 1.6 MegaPixel front cam, Full HD video recorder, 3G HSPA+ support, and a removable 2,000 mAh Li-Ion battery pack. Also, users who have multiple mobile numbers will also be glad to know that the device has two regular Mini slots and as such, comes with Dual SIM Dual Standby capability.

Under the hood, Xiaomi Redmi 1s is powered by a Quad Core 1.6 GHz ARM Cortex A7 and Adreno 305 GPU based Qualcomm MSM8228 Snapdragon chipset that's complemented by 1 GB of RAM for smooth multitasking and 8 GB of ROM that you can easily beef up using the handset's microSD card slot supporting up to 64 GB. The combination of these internal specifications give the smartphone an Antutu Benchmark Score in the area of 21,620 - as per Xiaomi's official internal testing."

TechPinas Visits Lazada Headquarters

Lazada Philippines, Mark Milan Macanas, Inanc Balci

Yesterday, I graced Lazada's warm invitation to visit their head office in Makati City and to have a friendly conversation with their team. It was a pleasure to meet and get a chance to have a chat with Mr. Inanc Balci, CEO and Co-Founder of Lazada Philippines (beside me in the photo above), and Mr. Arvi Lopez, Partnership and Public Relations Manager of the company.

I congratulated them for the success of Lazada in the Philippines and I shared that one of my new goals as a Pinoy technology blogger is to make e-commerce more popular in the country because I think it's very efficient and convenient in many ways and more importantly, it helps create jobs for my fellow Filipinos. It's all good, TP Friends! Thumbs up!
