Looking for a Redmi Note 4 successor? This could be it. After it was speculated that Xiaomi might drop its Redmi “Note” moniker, it appears that the Redmi Note 5 device could be announced tomorrow on Valentine’s Day. The big reveal is happening in India and it has been a year since the current Redmi Note 4 for international markets was launched.
2017 was a big year for Xiaomi as they have regained its top 5 global position. They have been increasing its presence with the opening of more Mi Stores overseas and through strategic partnerships including Lazada. Thanks to a massive year-end sale, Xiaomi had doubled its number of smartphones shipped in Q4 2017 and surprisingly, they managed to overtake OPPO.
Xiaomi has officially announced its new Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus smartphones which offer a big screen experience at an affordable price. Featuring a tall 18:9 display aspect ratio, the screen takes up a larger viewing area while it maintains a compact footprint compared to a typical 16:9 display. What’s interesting is that the Redmi 5 series is very affordable with a starting price of just 799CNY (about RM493).
UPDATE:: Xiaomi Redmi 5 series is now official.
