The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro, and Mi TV 4 all went up for its first sale today. As expected, stocks of the trio vanished within seconds of the process starting.
Xiaomi has now revealed the dates for the next sale for those who missed out on today’s round. The Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro are going up for grabs on February 28 at 12 pm. The Mi LED Smart TV 4 is going to be a bit early and hit availability on February 27 at 12 pm.
Flash sales can be a bit of pain, but it looks like Xiaomi will be sticking to this format for now. It’ll hopefully start open sales sooner rather than later, as not everyone gets lucky in the short window of time a flash sale remains live.
The Redmi Note 5 can be bought via Flipkart and Xiaomi starting at Rs 9999 (3GB/32GB) and ending at Rs 11999 (4GB/64GB). The Redmi Note 5 Pro is also available via Flipkart and Xiaomi, but at a higher price tag of Rs 13999 (4GB/64GB) and Rs 16999 (6GB/64GB).
