Apple has announced that it will hold a special one day shopping event in certain countries in Asia, dubbed “Red Friday,” on Friday, January 25th (via iPhoneHacks).

The sale, which Apple has also held in previous years, is similar in style to Apple’s Black Friday sales events held in other countries. Apple also notes that free shipping will be offered for this sale, presumably for all items.

The eligible countries include Singapore, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, and Malaysia. Apple recently posted its gift guide for this holiday. We previously covered Apple’s “Lucky Bag” promotion in Japan earlier this year.
