Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is expected to be launched sometime in the second quarter of 2018. Just yesterday, a new render of Redmi Note 5 has leaked online which showed the device with an entirely new design as compared to images leaked before. Now after the phone’s render, the pricing information of the device has now surfaced online.
As per a report by GizmoChina, the phone was mentioned among the list of prizes for a contest that the company is hosting on its China MIUI forum. In the forum post, the smartphone has been priced 699 Yuan which means it will be priced at over Rs 6800 in India. However, the same source could also be a typographical error and the company might be intended to write Note 5A, which is also priced at 699 Yuan.
As per image leaked yesterday by Slashleaks, Redmi Note 5 sports very thin bezels on the front. Ther is dual camera setup, silver antenna lines, curved sides, and the Mi logo on the back of the device. Just below the dual camera, there lies the fingerprint sensor. The top houses the rear camera, sensors and primary microphone.
