Anonymous, 02 Feb 2018Can you tell the exact date in February? Why there is no press invitation to the launch? Why ... moreThe exact date is probably 25th February and it'll be unveiled at MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2018 if the rumors are true!
Musang King, 02 Feb 2018Partly agree with U dudes, for me I will wait till the end of February if nothing happen about... moreThe initial plan is to keep the price low, Xiaomi decide to replace Redmi Note 5 with Redmi 5 plus, then push up Redmi Note as mid high range.
But seem like Indian consumer doesn't go well with the idea, so now Xiaomi has to fast forward to push Redmi Note 5 launch, but this will take times, which is why it indicates to be available in Q2.
The catch is Redmi 5 plus already in the market, if Xiaomi announced Redmi Note 5 now, it will killed off Redmi 5 plus, this is why Xiaomi keep mouth seal on Redmi Note 5 launch date.
Xiaomi now talking wait & see approach, if Redmi 5 plus sell well there would in hold Redmi Note 5 launch to Q3, If Redmi 5 plus end up as disaster there will launch Redmi Note 5 soonest possible by Q2.
So the only way India consumer can get there Redmi Note 5 fast is to boycott Redmi 5 plus....lol
Another issue is now Redmi 5 plus is selling a previous Redmi Note 4 price bracket, So expect Redmi Note 5 to price much higher, probably arround RS 18000.

from what i remember, we've all been waiting and waiting since december, and til right now there aint be no RN5, xiaomi lied to all of us mifans.
I've been searching post from facebook, twitter, miui forum, and others forum, nothing implying explicitly of when will RN5 will be announced.
What i did found was yet another rumors, gossip, assumption, and peoples jumping to conclusion.
I browse on xiaomi facebook or twitter, and when a LOT of mifans asked regarding the launch date of RN5 to doesnt matter miglobal or miui or xiaomi"your country name". here is how they ALWAYS replied :
1. it will be soon ;)
2. wait and you shall receive
3. next month will be lit
4. we working our best to deliver you the best outcome
5. the time will come soon
6. blablabla etcetc same bull just different packaging is all
soon? soon when xiaomi? cause by Einstein theory, soon can be either one second or 1 billions lights year LMAO
next month gonna be lit? what kind of lit xiaomi? u plan to launch another power bank or earphone? be specific for your pride sake
the best outcome for us? what is it xiaomi? the best out come for us, is you deliver the RN series consistently each year, without any delay, if there is any delay or worst, you don't even plan to make one, you could at least give us an official statement instead of hanging us around, why making announcement? because you OWE us that muchh at least, so wont be so dam rich if it isnt because of us.
im sorry to all u guys that feel offended by my post, doesnt mean to flame here, this is just an honest and true opinion after my research.
this is the first and last time i will post here, i promise u, cause hell i will buy another phone brand even though it suck, at least it exist, and will not regret it later anyhow, at least im glad i wont be making them company any richer from my hard earned money
its not fair xiaomi put a delay on the release of this note series which the one that has a lot of fans waiting, and when its delayed, its only fair that xiaomi should give us statement instead of leaving us hanging around, giving us false hope and other bull, not knowing when it will come or if it isnt coming at all. cause the longer u wait, u keep on dead a little inside
not worth waiting
I don't think any phone has created this much hype as Redmi Note 5 has. For months it has been on trending list of GSMarena. Whereas there are no whereabouts of it from Xiaomi. Such crazy fan following is what brands want! Create maximum hype and rumors but launch not even 70% of what was thought. It will sell out in seconds even if Xiaomi launches a piece of trash at high price.

Please xiaomi please make a official statement or at least any tip about redmi note 5. Fans are going mad about the phone😞😞😞

But by hook or by crook Xiaomi will release RN5 either on Q1 or Q2 this year, I still believe RN5 is maybe Redmi 5 Plus renamed. This is the link about that news /www.androidcentral.com/xiaomi-may-launch-redmi-note-5-india-february.
Musang King, 31 Jan 2018Reliable source from Xiaomi said Redmi Note 5 will officially launch on this February but not ... moreHow reliable is the source ? it is from Lei Jun himself ? if fact Xiaomi would have made official teaser & press invitation by now if there is an official launch in February, there would also send samples for testing in various countries safety standard authority.
So far zero news about it, guess what ? Xiaomi will launch Redmi 5 plus my country next week, this has been known for a month earlier as samples been sent to out products safety testing board a month ago.
All this are mere rumours, as according to Indonesia news Redmi Note 5 if it ever exist will only be launch by Q2 (April -June) a least.
Redmi Note 5 to be launched at Feb end with a launch already scheduled.
RN5 will be available in two variants one with SD632 & SD636 (as both the chips are quiet good performer and power efficient as both are created on 14nm ) and both the versions will have Dual Camera, 18:9 aspect ratio, 4000mah battery, Fast charge support (USB type C).
Pricing might go a little bit high with RN5 but still it will be very aggressive compared to competitors.
The delay is due to two variants and also due to large scale production large for the
demand that will after the launch.
Beside Xiaomi is working on MI A2 & Mi Mix 2s (seen at MWC) and its flagship Mi 7.
That's all for the news.
Dear all readers this is not official announced handset, so please ignore it
