Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro sells out. Like hotcakes

by on23 February 2018

Over 300k units in less than three minutes

It appears that Xiaomi's Redmi Note 5 Pro is quite an interesting smartphone as the company managed to sell over 300k units in less than three minutes on its first flash sale of the smartphone.

Claiming to be "the biggest sale in the history of India", Xiaomi India said that it managed to sell its whole first batch in flash sale pretty damn quickly.

Unfortunately, the sale, which was on both and Flipkart sites, did not go that well for most users as some claim that the phone was out of stock in 10 seconds and that some orders were even canceled.

Some users also claimed that the site crashed "within a second", which led to a lot of disgruntled comments on Xiaomi's Twitter account.

In case you missed it earlier, the Redmi Note 5 Pro, priced at INR 13,999 (around US $220/€175), features a 5.99-inch IPS screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and 2160x1080 resolution and is powered by the new Snapdragon 636 SoC. The Snapdragon 635 SoC comes with eight Qualcomm Kryo 260 CPU cores (4+4) clocked at up to 1.8GHz and uses the Adreno 509 GPU.

The rest of the specifications include 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage space, a dual-rear camera with 12- and 5-megapixel sensors, 20-megapixel front camera, and a hefty 4,000mAh battery.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro is available in Black, Gold, Rose Gold, and Blue color options and those that missed the first flash sale will be glad to know that there will be another one on and Flipkart on February 28th.
