If you missed the chance to grab the Redmi 3S Prime at the flash sale on mi.com and Flipkart last week, here’s your second shot. Xiaomi’s ultra-affordable smartphone will once again go on sale today at 12 PM local time on both these sites.
During the last flash sale held on August 10, only the Redmi 3S Prime was available and 90,000 units were sold out within just eight minutes of the smartphone going on sale online. That was “the highest volume ever” for a first sale held by Xiaomi, and also the most successful open sale for Flipkart. This time, however, you’ll be able to book the Redmi 3S as well.
It’s worth mentioning that the only difference between the Redmi 3S and the Redmi 3S Prime lies in their memory and storage capabilities. The Redmi 3S come with 2GB RAM and 16GB onboard storage, while the Redmi 3S Prime features 3GB RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, with the latter also featuring a fingerprint scanner. Other specs are the same, with both featuring an impressive 4,100 mAh battery.
If you’re in the market for a new smartphone with impressive specs and competitive pricing, then the Redmi 3S selling at Rs 6,999 (~$105) should suit you well. If don’t mind spending a few extra bucks for a little bit of extra storage and RAM and biometric security, then the Redmi 3S Prime priced at just Rs 8,999 (~$135) is certainly an attractive deal.
Hopefully, Xiaomi should make more units of both the Redmi 3S and Redmi 3S Prime available for sale this time around so that you can be among the lucky ones to get your hands on the device. For the flash sale, you can head straight to Flipkart or the Xiaomi India website. Good luck!
