Xiaomi Redmi 5A is among the most popular smartphones in India. It is all set to go for pre-order again today for the next sale, and interested people have another chance to grab one.
The phone will be going up for pre-orders on Xiaomi’s own website, and will be very similar to a flash sale, in the terms where the number of units will be fixed. The primary difference between a flash sale and a pre-order is that the company does not allow cash-on-delivery option when pre-ordering. Buyers will have to pay the whole amount when pre-booking the phone. And Xiaomi advises its buyers to save all their details on the website beforehand, and be ready when the time for pre-ordering comes.
The pre-order of the phone goes live at 12:00PM, and the colors Blue, Dark Grey, Gold, and Rose Gold will be available. The Redmi 5A is priced at Rs 5,999 for the 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage variant, and Rs 6,999 for the 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage variant.
There is a three-month subscription offer of Hungama Music for buyers, and Reliance Jio users can avail a cashback offer of Rs 2,200 in the form of Rs 50 vouchers on recharges of Rs 198 or Rs. 299
