The pricing is similar to the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, which retails for Rs 9,999 for 3GB/32GB and Rs 11,999 for 4GB/64GB model in India.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is the successor of the Xioami Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. However, the difference between the Note 4 and the Note 5 are as thin as a lath. We feel the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro should have been the Redmi Note 5.
