We are waiting for the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S to be launched in coming days. But this is a high-end smartphone and most of us will just fear our eyes on it. That’s why even more people are interested in another handset that is set to launch along with this handset on March 16. As you guess, we are talking about the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, which has been launched a bit earlier in India as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro. We have learned too much about it. The only thing remaining unknown has been the price. But today we have got a certain information how much this phone will cost.

Most of the hardware of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will be identical to the Redmi Note 5 Pro. But Xiaomi has hinted the camera will get some improvements. A few days back, we learned the phone will support AI for both front and rear camera modules. Thus the Redmi Note 5 is going to be the first thousand-yuan machine with an AI camera in China (and in the world, actually).
As for the specs, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is packed with a Snapdragon 636 chip, which is paired with a
4/6GB of LPDDR4X RAM and a 64GB of internal storage. Thanks to the SoC that is based on a 14nm process node, Kryo 260 architecture, 8-core design, 1.8GHz core frequency, and Adreno 5.9 GPU it scores up to 110K at AnTuTu v7.0.4. Apart from this, the Redmi Note 5 is packed with a 4000mAh battery.
Well, all these features make the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 one of the most attractive mid-rangers. But today it became known there will be a 3+32GB variant as well. Its price is expected to be 1199 yuan ($189). As for the rest of memory options, the 4+64GB is said to cost 4+64GB 1499 yuan ($236), while the 6+64GB variant will go on sale at 1799 yuan ($284).
