After launching the Redmi Note 5 Pro back in February in India, it seems that Xiaomi has finally decided to turn its attention to Nepal. Today, Mi Nepalhas released a teaser on their official Facebook Page, which shows the Redmi Note 5 and says that “The successor is coming”. The teaser, however, doesn’t point to any specific date when it might be coming.
Redmi Note 5/Pro Overview:
For those who you who don’t follow Xiaomi much, the company had released two variant of Redmi Note 5. One is available as Redmi Note 5 Pro in India and the other one is available as Redmi Note 5 AI Dual Camera in China and Vietnam. On the surface, the handset takes inspiration from iPhone X and features a vertical dual camera setup in the back. On the front is a full view 5.99-inch FHD (18:9 aspect ratio) display. This gives the device a premium and a modern design.
Performance wise, the smartphone packs Snapdragon 636 ( Octa-core 1.8 GHz Kryo 260 ) along with 4GB or 6GB of RAM (DDR4X) coupled with 32GB or 64GB of internal storage. Powering the device is the iconic non-removable 4000mAh battery. With such capable hardware, you will able to go through your daily tasks like buttery throughout the day.
Difference between the Indian And Chinese variant of Redmi Note 5/Pro:
Now let’s talk about the differences between the Indian and Chinese variant of Redmi Note 5. Well, the only difference between the Indian and Chinese variant of Redmi Note 5 is on their camera. Indian variant comes with 12 MP (f/2.2, 1.25µm) + 5 MP (f/2.0, 1.12µm) dual rear camera and 20 MP (f/2.2, 1/2.8″, 1µm) front-facing camera whereas Chinese variant comes with 12 MP (f/1.9, 1.4µm) + 5 MP (f/2.0, 1.25µm) dual rear camera and 13 MP (f/2.0, 1.12µm) front-facing camera.
From these number, we can expect better low light photos from Chinese variant compared to Indian variant. Since Chinese variant comes with a larger aperture and bigger pixel size which are better for low light. Also Chinese variant has Dual-pixel phase detection auto-focus system whereas Indian variant is missing Dual-pixel auto-focus system. When means, Redmi Note 5 Chinese variant will have better autofocus while video recording compared to Indian variant.
The teaser post was shared by Mi Nepal, which is handled by Vatsal Impex Pvt Ltd (One of the Nation distributor of Xiaomi product in Nepal). Now there are some rumors that Vatsal Impex Pvt Ltd will be launching Chinese variant of Redmi Note 5 in Nepal whereas Teletalk Pvt Ltd (Also the national distributor of Xiaomi Product in Nepal) is planning to launch Indian variant of Redmi Note 5 in Nepal. Since these are only the rumors floating in the market, so please take it as a grain of salt.
Now looking at the current price scenario of Xiaomi mobile in Nepal we guess Redmi Note 5/Pro might cost around 25k for 4+64GB variant and around 30k for 6+64GB variant. We hope Mi Nepal launches it at a very competitive price just like other Redmi series smartphones available in Nepal.
In our opinion though, the most crucial thing about this device will be its pricing. Up until now, Xiaomi has always come up with a irresistible pricing for its devices and hopefully the Redmi Note 5 Pro will follow the suite.
