Earlier this week we heard reports that the Redmi 5 Plus might launch as the Redmi Note 5 in India. Well, it seems there might be some truth to the report after all. Two new devices with model numbers MET7S and MEE7S were just given the nod by 3C China this month. They have been registered by Xiaomi.
The key here are those model numbers that give us a hint. The Redmi 5 Plus has similar series numbers. When it was registered it had MEE7 and MET7 as its model numbers. Now, the new registered models might very well be beefed up versions of the Redmi 5 Plus looking at their similar model numbers. This could very well signal the coming of the Redmi Note 5. It’s well known that the Redmi Note series is an upgrade over the Redmi series. Hence the similarity in the model numbers. Officially, there aren’t any signs from Xiaomi that they are releasing the Redmi Note 5. But this latest reported 3C spotting could be our best bet.
Gizchina News of the week
The Redmi Note 5 is a very talked about handset because it is a very popular series. Earlier reports have tipped the phone to rock the Snapdragon 660, 636 and even the 632 chip under the hood. Dual cameras have also been reported to be on board along with a thin bezel display. However, no credible leaked images have so far shown such features on the handset.
