Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 reportedly replaced by Redmi 5 Plus

The Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus are Xiaomi's most affordable phones with near-bezel-less design and a display with 18:9 aspect ratio. They were unveiled in China last month.

However, for quite some time rumors had it that Xiaomi will also launch the Redmi Note 5 soon. But that's not happening anytime soon, because the phone is already launched.

A super moderator on Xiaomi's official forum claims that the Redmi Note 5 was replace by the Redmi 5 Plus. According the moderator Xiaomi has dropped the Note moniker at the moment, so there won't be any other phone, and Redmi 5 Plus will be the brand's only large-screen affordable model for now. 

“The wait is finally over, Xiaomi has finally decided to release the Redmi Note 5, wait!!! I heard its 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”, the moderator said.

However, there's a possibility that Xiaomi could launch the Redmi 5 Plus in India and some other market as the Redmi Note 5. This is because the Redmi Note 4 was one of the best selling smartphone in the country. And Note 4 users are eagerly waiting for the launch of Redmi Note 5.

Do note that Xiaomi is yet to officialy confirm this report.

To recap the specs, the Redmi 5 comes with 5.7-inch HD+ display, Snapdragon 450 chip, 2GB/3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage, 12MP/5MP camera and 3300mAh battery. The Redmi 5 Plus on the other hand has 5.99-inch Full HD+ display, Xiaomi's favorite Snapdragon 625 chip, 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage,  12MP/5MP camera and 4000mAh battery.

Both models have fingerprint scanner, dedicated slot for dual-SIM and microSD card and support for 4G VoLTE. The Redmi 5 price starts at Rs. 7,800, while the Plus models starts at Rs. 10,000 in China.
