It’s Friday, which means Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is making its budget smartphones – the Xiaomi Redmi 4 and Xiaomi Redmi 4A – available for pre-orders on its site, Mi.com. Pre-orders are a way to avoid queuing up for weekly flash sales, and are a guaranteed way to purchase the smartphones. Pre-ordered smartphones ship within five business days, but, customers are limited to one smartphone per order. There is no cash on delivery option for pre-orders, and buyers have to pay up front.
