Xiaomi's pre-order for Redmi Note 4, 4A to begin today

The pre-order system is meant to let customers purchase Xiaomi's signature products without waiting for flash sales.

Xiaomi will put up its Redmi Note 4 and Redmi 4A for pre-order at its website Mi.com from 12:00 in the noon on Friday. The 'brand-new pre-order system' introduced by the Chinese phonemaker will supposedly be preferred by customers who do not want to wait for the next flash sales.

The pre-order system is meant to let customers purchase Xiaomi's signature products without waiting for flash sales, says the company's website. The rules of the event suggest that buyers could pre-order a maximum of two products.

Sadly, this facility does not come with cash on delivery options. Xiaomi is asking buyers looking to pre-order from Mi.com to keep their payment information like credit or debit cards, netbanking or e-wallets prepared beforehand.
