Xiaomi’s best budget offering this year, the Redmi Note 5 Pro was previously available in four colours in India – Black, Blue, Gold, and Rose Gold. Now, after some teasing on Twitter, the Flame Red colour is also available in the country. It has already been on sale in China for some time but this is the first time it has come to India. The Flame Red Note 5 Pro will go on sale on Mi.com at 10:00 AM on Tuesday. It should be available soon on Flipkart.
Prices of the smartphone have not changed understandably as the 4GB will still cost Rs 14,999 and the 6GB + 64GB will sell for Rs 16,999. Besides the new paint job, the Redmi Note 5 Pro is the same old device that is the go-to for a lot of budget-conscious buyers in India.
It has a reliable Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC inside its guts that promises hassle-free performance even with heavy lifting tasks. The first ever dual camera of the Redmi Note series has also matured to a great extent now and even the 20MP front camera is a top performer in its segment. Our colleague Ershad has done a number of in-depth camera comparisons for the handset on the YouTube channel and you might want to check them out.
The Redmi Note 5 Pro came with Android Nougat out-of-the-box but it now runs Android Oreo and is on the verge of getting stable MIUI 10. The Flame Red colour will only add to its charm and give potential buyers more reason to buy the device.
