Earlier today, the full specification details along with promo images of the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro leaked online. It was followed by a live photo of the Redmi Note 5 Pro and now pricing details for both phones have also surfaced online. Even with all the leaks, we are still looking forward to the launch tomorrow.
Redmi Note 5
The Redmi Note 5 will be available in two variants – 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM and 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM. The 3GB variant will sell for Rs. 9,999 (~$156) while the 4GB variant with double the storage will be sold for Rs. 11,999 (~$187).
Redmi Note 5 Pro
The more interesting Redmi Note 5 Pro will be available in three variants but pricing is only available for the 4GB + 64GB and 6GB +64GB models.
The 4GB variant will sell for Rs. 13,999 (~$218) while the 6GB variant has a Rs. 16,999 (~$265) price tag. That sure is a lot of difference for just 2GB of extra RAM unless there are other differences we don’t know about. If you ask us, we think the 4GB RAM variant is fine since storage is still the same on both devices.
With the price of the 4GB model, we presume the 3GB RAM version will be sold for Rs. 12,999 (~$202).
A second image shows that sales will begin on February 22 at 12 noon (local time) and will be exclusive to Flipkart. The 6GB RAM Redmi Note 5 Pro will be available at a later date.
