The launch of Xiaomi‘s next budget device is around the corner, and it seems like the Chinese manufacturing company is started dropping hints. However, it is still a confusion about what the company is going to launch on 14th of February. Is it Redmi 5 and 5 Plus or it is going to be Redmi Note 5?. However, it pretty much seems like that the company would launch the successor of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 which is the Redmi Note 5.
The upcoming smartphone is also made its way to the Indian ecommerce website Flipkart.com (see the listing here) and yes the company running the #GiveMe5 campaign over here as well. Well, what’s interesting is that the predecessor of the phone, Redmi Note 4 was a Flipkart exclusive, and the other model of the company, Redmi 4 was an Amazon exclusive. Redmi Note 4 was an astounding success for the company, it was the highest selling smartphone of 2017 and is the only product to be rated a million times in Flipkart.
Here’s the Twitter post from Flipkart:

Flipkart won’t be giving up the successor to the Redmi Note 4 anyways to Amazon, which is their arch rival in India. If these weren’t enough, the source code of the phone’s listing revealed that it’s Redmi Note 5 some days back. So it pretty much seems like that is is the Redmi Note 5, if we go by the facts.
Here’s the video listed on the Flipkart page:
If we talk about the smartphone’s specifications, then the smartphone is expected to feature an 18:09 display. The display size would be 5.99 inches and may come with a resolution of 1080×2160 pixels. Under the hood, the smartphone is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor and may come along with 3GB and 4GB RAM variant. As far as the storage capacity is concerned, we might get to see 32GB and 64GB internal storage variant. However, as of now, we have no details about the support of expandable storage.
The smartphone is also going to sport a dual camera setup at the rear panel. A 16MP and 5MP lenses would power the dual camera setup. On the front, the smartphone could feature an 8MP camera for selfies.
Also, the smartphone is expected to run on Android Oreo along with MIUI 9 and may feature a battery of 4100mAH. However, as of now, specifications are not confirmed by the company itself. So let’s just wait for a few more days.
