Since the launch of the Redmi 5/5 Plus, a lot of us have been thinking, where the heck is the Redmi Note 5? Well, many Redmi Note fans might not like the answer. According to a super moderator on the MIUI forum itself, the Redmi 5 Plus is actually the Redmi Note 5!
The super moderator believes that Xiaomi has dropped the 4-year old Redmi Note moniker and unified it with the Redmi series. Of course, this is no official info, but coming from an authentic moderator, this could very well be the truth.
The wait is finally over, Xiaomi has finally decided to release the Redmi Note 5, wait!!! I heard it’s called the Redmi 5 Plus? No kidding?? There was a name change? Well yes folks, the 2 new Redmi Note sized phones are named Redmi 5 for the 5.7″ and Redmi 5 Plus for the 5.99″.
And if this is true, then, of course, Xiaomi fans will be sorely disappointed. As the Redmi 5 Plus packs, almost no specs upgrade compared to the Redmi Note 4. It has the same Snapdragon 625 chip which is able but old notwithstanding other specs. The only thing weighing in its favour is the bigger 5.99-inch thin bezel display. Will that be enough to warrant a purchase? we leave that question up to you.
Up till now, we have been expecting the Redmi Note 5 in January 2018. But if this new info is true, we might skip to a direct Indian launch of the Redmi 5/5 Plus. Also what this means for the Redmi 4X is still unknown. Will it be relegated to just the Redmi 5 or will there be another launch for it? It is yet unknown.
