Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 now available on open sale via Flipkart with a catch

Redmi Note 5

Xiaomi recently released Redmi Note 5 with a large bezel-less display and Android Nougat. The handset was made available via a flash sale at 12 PM once in every week via Flipkart. The concept of flash sale has been broken and the e-commerce company has thrown open the sale on an open sale basis from April 18 midnight onwards. However, you will be able to purchase only one unit of Redmi Note 5 for a period of 30 days from the date of the initial purchase.

Flipkart has provided a statement on the official product page that the maximum order quantity for Redmi Note 5 series is limited to one unit per customer every 30 days. The e-commerce retailer is also providing a discount of up to Rs 9000 upon exchange of old working smartphone. Moreover, you can also avail exciting bank offers.

On the specifications front, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is equipped with a 5.99-inch FHD+ IPS 2.5D Front Glass Panel display, Snapdragon 625 processor, 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB expandable internal storage pre-loaded with Android Nougat 7.1.2. The device is powered by a 4000mAh battery, which is capable of offering an extended backup upon a single charge.

While the rear side offers a 12MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture and PDAF support, front-facing camera bears a 5MP sensor with f/2.0 aperture. The camera also includes an LED Flash using which you can capture stunning visuals even in low-light conditions. In addition to 4G VoLTE, the Redmi Note 5 also provides support for all major connectivity features and sensors.

It is to be noted that only one unit of the Redmi Note 5 can be purchased per customer for 30 days. You can’t buy more than one unit at a time. The main reason for the imposition of the limit is attributed to the spike in the demand.
