Xiaomi Redmi Note 5: Rumors, Specs, Release Date, And More!

Xiaomi has sent out invites to the media for a launch event on February 14, and the teaser suggests the device will be the Redmi Note 5. The

5 in the invite could be alluding to either the Redmi 5 or the Redmi Note 5, but my guess is on the latter.

The Redmi Note 4 was the best-selling phone in India last year, and with the device making its debut on January 19, 2017, we're long overdue a successor. And while the Redmi lineup primarily focused on the entry-level tier in the country, it's the Redmi Note series that is the catalyst for the brand in the budget segment.

Furthermore, Xiaomi isn't shy to unveil an all-new product on the Indian stage, as we've seen last year. Either way, we'll find out more about the device on February 14.

Pricing could remain unchanged

Xiaomi pioneered the model of selling phones at near-manufacturing cost, and it doesn't look like the manufacturer is going to change its stance now. We'll have to wait until the official launch to know about pricing information, but early rumors have suggested that the phone will debut at the same price point as its predecessor.

With the 4GB variant of the Redmi Note 4 debuting at ₹12,999 ($202), we may get to see a Redmi Note 5 model with a similar 4GB RAM/64GB storage configuration retailing at that $200 price point. Doing so would certainly drum up excitement in the device, but we'll have to wait a week to know more.

As for availability, it's unlikely the phone will be sold outside Asian markets. Xiaomi has said that it will eventually sell its phones in the U.S., but the manufacturer isn't ready for a Stateside launch just yet.
