Xiaomi made a big splash last week with the announcement of not 1, but 3 new products for the Indian market. All 3 are now going up for its first flash sale on Flipkart and the brand’s site.
Starting with the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro, the pair will go live at 12 pm today. Going by previous flash sales, both will probably disappear within seconds, so you’ll have to be quick about it. Make sure you’ve logged into your account ahead of time and have all your payment and address details ready.
The Redmi Note 5 (Flipkart/Xiaomi) is available in a 3GB/32GB option at Rs 9999 and a 4GB/64GB one at Rs 11999. The Redmi Note 5 Pro (Flipkart/Xiaomi) starts with a 4GB/64GB model at Rs 13999 and ends up at a 6GB/64GB one at Rs 16999. The last is easily one of the cheapest 6GB RAM phones around.
As for offers, the biggest one is a partnership with Reliance Jio which grants you Rs 2200 in the form of cashback after recharging for either Rs 198 or Rs 299. The amount will be doled out via 40 vouchers worth Rs 50 each. These in turn can be used against later recharges of Rs 198 or Rs 299. There’s also a Double Data deal giving away up to 4.5TB of data.
