The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Could Launch In India At Around Rs. 7000
Ever since Xiaomi launched the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus, there have been reports claiming that the Redmi 5 Plus will be launched in India as the Redmi Note 5. These rumours came about through a revelation on the MIUI forums in China and from the same source, it has been seemingly confirmed that the Redmi Note 5 will indeed be launched and it might be the most inexpensive Redmi Note yet.
A report claims that the Redmi Note 5 was mentioned among the list of prizes for a contest that the company is hosting on its China MIUI forum. In the forum post, the smartphone has been priced 699 Yuan which roughly translates to about Rs. 6800. However, this could very well be a typo as the company might have intended to write ‘Redmi Note 5A’ which is priced at 699 Yuan in China.
Even if the device is priced a bit higher, Redmi Note 5 enthusiasts will be happy to know that the device in works and is expected to be launched in the coming months in China. Subsequently, India is expected to be one of the first global markets to receive the Redmi Note 5 thanks to the popularity of the Redmi Note 4.
Recently, a new render of the Redmi Note 5 was leaked which looks a bit ambitious. However, there is no denying that the Redmi Note 5 with this design might become a fan favourite as soon as it launches.
The bezels around the display are thinner than the ones found on the Redmi 5 Plus and at its price point, could have the best screen-to-body ratio. The smartphone is expected to be launched at a price similar to the Redmi Note 4 which continues to be a popular Xiaomi phone in markets like India.
