Xiaomi’s homepage source code reveals Redmi Note 5 launching on February 14

A Redmi device will launch on Feb 14

Xiaomi has ended the wait for an awful lot of its fans with invites of an imminent Redmi 5 launch event. Well, actually we don’t know if the “5” in the teaser stands for the Redmi 5 Plus or the Redmi Note 5. And that is where all the confusion starts. Some are calling it a Redmi 5 Plus event, while others are speculating it to be a Redmi Note 5 launch event.

However, some evidence has been unearthed to support the argument of the latter. The gist of the evidence is that the source code of the teaser page itself contained the name – Redmi Note 5. Moreover, the meta description of the event page also clearly hints to a Redmi Note 5 event. It reads like this, “Presenting the all rounder #GiveMe5.” Recalling the Redmi Note 4 launch that was happened in India in January last year under the presence of Indian cricket all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, the word “all rounder” within the meta description indeed suggests the Redmi Note 4 successor.”

This should end all doubts as to what Xiaomi has in store come February 14th. But the big question that still lingers is – What if the Redmi Note 5 is just a renamed Redmi 5 Plus? Especially when Xiaomi has not actually launched the Redmi Note 5 in its home country. Could this mean that Xiaomi is axing the product line on its soil while the Redmi 5 Plus is being launched just to appease India’s Redmi Note addiction? We leave it to you to decide.
