Xiaomi is trying to make good on its promise of making its devices available in abundance for the customers. The company is hosting a pre-order for the Redmi 5A smartphone, Mi TV 4 and the Mi TV 4A. The pre-order is essentially another flash sale but the booked devices will be shipped out to users within 5 days. Additionally, users can’t change the delivery address after placing the order and need to pay for it online as the COD option will not be available. Xiaomi launched its first television offering in India, the Mi TV 4 in February and later in March unveiled the 32-inch and 43-inch Mi TV 4A.
