The timing of this announcement is quite close to the launch of the next Redmi device. In fact, Xiaomi sent invites to the media just last week for a supposed launch of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 set for September 6.
The Redmi Note 5 Pro first launched back in March in India in several color configurations including Black, Blue, Gold, and Rose Gold. It has a 6-inch display with FHD+ resolution, a 12MP + 5MP dual camera on the back, and a Snapdragon 636 chipset with 4GB Of RAM.
Where I'm coming from RN3 starts at 160€, Poco at 340€, that's more than double by my calculations.
Lol you kidding, right? RN5Pro is 15k (17k for 6/64), Poco starts at 21k for 6/64. Applying the maths that I know, it is way less than "double" of that price 😂
