While Huawei and honor have been flooding the market with its Kirin 659 powered smartphones, it appears that the best response from Xiaomi is to fill the market with even more mid-range devices with the same Snapdragon 625 processor.
Xiaomi will be announcing a couple of devices on 25 June and one of it is yet another mid-range smartphone. After introducing the Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi 5 Note series, the next device will be the Redmi 6 Pro. This is the first Redmi series to come with a notch display.
I think, if you’ve been reading our site, you already know that Xiaomi’s really good at making cheap phones. Yes, they do make some solid flagship devices for incredibly attractive prices, but I’ve always found that they’re at their best in the affordable mid range segment.
Best phone under RM1,000? For me — for as long as I’ve been writing tech — the answer was always Redmi Note. This year, their champion in this increasingly competitive segment of the market is called the Redmi Note 5 and I’m here to help you find out if it’s still the one true king.

This is it! The Xiaomi smartphone you’ve been waiting for is coming to Malaysia very soon. The Redmi Note 5 was spotted on the SIRIM database and now the official online store has teased that it will be hitting Malaysia next week.
Xiaomi‘s new smartphone is coming to Malaysia and it’s the one you’ve been waiting for. Sure, flagships are cool, but for a lot of us, the mid-range is where the money’s at. It’s the one we can actually afford and with how good they’re getting, it can get pretty hard to justify paying so much more for a top-of-the-line handset.
And I don’t think anyone makes better mid-rangers than Xiaomi does. So get hyped because it looks like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is coming to our shores very soon.
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.
