Xiaomi phases out the ‘out of favour’ Redmi Note 5 in India

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 which was launched alongside Redmi Note 5 Pro failed to maintain it’s popularity like its predecessor – the Redmi Note 4 – and now the company has decided to take the device off from all platforms.

According to 91mobiles, a couple of weeks ago Xiaomi had already started removing the Note 5 listings from its official website and offline Mi stores. One of the reasons the device did not get the taste of success is because Redmi Note 5 Pro was introduced by the company which is comparatively much better at every aspect than the toned down Note 5. Although Xiaomi gave a last try to boost the phone’s sales with the release of the latest Redmi Note 6 Pro but it did not changed anything. Moreover, the Note 5 Pro was tipped to get a discount with the launch of Redmi Note 6 Pro, unfortunately, that never took place. Redmi Note 5 Pro is still carrying a price tag of Rs 12,999.
