Redmi 5 Plus will debut as Redmi Note 5 in India, claims report

Xiaomi has not yet announced any new device for the Indian market this year. However, a new report claims that a successor of the popular Redmi Note 4 will soon launch in the country. The Redmi 5 Plus of the Chinese market will be renamed as the Redmi Note 5 for the Indian market. The phone arrived in China in December and is likely to arrive here in February. 

There has not been any official announcement by Xiaomi so far. The company’s PR representative, Clinton Jeff, tweeted something which has kindled the flames of this phone’s launch. According to him, the coming month will see some announcements by Xiaomi. 

Redmi 5 Plus to launch as Redmi Note 5

You might wonder why we think that this announcement will be for the Redmi Note 5. This is because a report states that the Redmi 5 Plus will debut as the Redmi Note 5 in India. 

Xiaomi is all set to launch the Mi 7 at the MWC 2018.

If the phone does launch as the Redmi Note 5, it will attend to the needs of the budget section. The device carries a stunning bezel-less display with some high-end features as well. It would be interesting to watch as Xiaomi packs all these features into a phone worth Rs 10,000. If rumours are to be believed, Xiaomi was planning to stop producing phones under the name of “Note”. If this is true, it is possible that the phone will launch as the Redmi 5 Plus in other markets. 

Redmi 5 Plus – specifications and features

The Redmi 5 Plus has a 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080p. The phone is nearly bezel-less with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. It is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor which supports 4K video recording. The phone is supported by a massive 4000mAh battery. The device has two variants in China.
