The Redmi Note 5 Pro will be sold without flash sale today at 12pm as Xiaomi readies to host a pre-order sale for the popular smartphone. Fans looking to get their hands on Redmi Note 5 Pro will have to head to Mi.com, the official Xiaomi website, and place the order or pre-payment basis — this means they cannot opt for cash on delivery as a payment option. The primary benefit of the Redmi Note 5 Pro pre-order sale is that customers won’t have to rush to add the phone in the cart; instead, they will be assured of the delivery of the product with promise of guaranteed priority (which generally means five business days).
Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 5 Pro in two variants in February, and has made it available via weekly flash sales on Flipkart, Mi.com, and Mi Home offline stores. However, due to the popularity of the smartphone, it has been difficult for many a buyer to get their hands on the device. Apart from the handset, its sibling Redmi Note 5, Mi TV 4A 43-inch and 32-inch variants, and Mi TV 4 55-inch model will also be for grabs today at 12pm on Mi.com.
