Redmi Note 5 Pro will now be available in open sales, with Xiaomi ending flash sales for the phone. Redmi Note 5 Pro open sales have started from today itself and the device is listed on Flipkart and Mi.com, which is Xiaomi’s own e-commerce platform.
The end of the flash sale should come as good news to fans, who’ve been unable to purchase the phone. Xiaomi’s flash sale system has been criticised by many in the past. Open sale means users will no longer have to register or log-in before the sale timing in order to buy the Redmi Note 5 Pro. They can now hit ‘Buy’ from either website, without the problem of flash sales or stock running out.
