Just like any other Xiaomi smartphone, this one too went out of stock instantly. The company is yet to reveal the total number of units those were sold in the first flash sale but has announced that the second sale of the Redmi 5A will happen on December 14. Similar to the first sale, the Redmi 5A will be available via Flipkart and mi.com even during the second sale.

Regarding the second flash sale of the Redmi 5A, Manu Kumar Jain, the Xiaomi India Head has taken to Twitter to announce the same. The tweet reads, "Mi Fans! Your love for the #Redmi5A has been phenomenal! Thank you for supporting the #DeshKaSmartphone! I understand that some of you faced difficulties in placing orders. Our partners are working hard to fix those issues. Mark your calendars. The next sale is on 14th!"

The company has assured that they will increase the offline availability of the Redmi 5A by selling the smartphone via the major retail stores and Mi Home stores across the country. This move will increase the overall sales as well.
