After the release of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro in India, last month, Xiaomi is looking forward to releasing the Chinese version of it, named as ‘Xiaomi Redmi Note 5’ this March 16. As it’s a mid-end budget-friendly flagship, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 price will be the main concern for most Xiaomi fans. There were no price details leaked of the flagship till now. Yesterday, a picture hit Weibo revealing Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 price.
As shown in the figure, the price of Redmi Note 5 leaked is 1,499 yuan (around $237/ INR 15377). We know that the price of the Redmi Note 5 PRO in India is Rs 13999 (approximately RMB 1400). That’s why the leaked price appears to be true as there’s a slight price difference.
It’s for the second time that the Indian Xiaomi phone version is cheaper than the homeland version. Well, maybe the addition of front camera AI beauty is what made the price a bit higher in China compared to India.
Considering the price-over-performance ratio, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 price is one of the best budget-friendly phones of all time. Though, it’s 399 yuan more than the previous generation still no smartphone manufacturer can give its customer a 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 2160 × 1080, equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, 6GB of memory + 64GB storage, and a battery capacity of 4000mAh. All this with a front AI smart beauty camera as the selling point, MIUI 9 (Android 8.0) and a great metal built. Thus, with a price increase, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is still worthy of spending 1499 yuan.
Furthermore, the image also reveals that there will be a 6GB version of the flagship and no 4GB version.
