XIAOMI REDMI NOTE 5 LAUNCHING IN INDIA ON NEXT MONTH FEBRUARY
Xiaomi has a traditional way of involving Mi Fans in device exploration before the launch of Redmi Note models in India, these explorers get devices before the official launch and are expected to participate in challenges given by the company.
Xiaomi has Fan Clubs in almost 20 cities in India which are officially supported by the Company, meet-ups are held every month in these cities and themes for the meet-ups are decided by the company officials. We have come across a few threads posted by Presidents of these Mi Fan Clubs regarding this month’s meetup on Mi Community and the theme for January Meetup is Reminiscing Mi Generation and the discussion will be on Redmi Note series which is hinting towards another Explorer program which might be followed by Redmi Note 5 launch as it happened for past two years.
Putting all the threads together it seems like Xiaomi is all set to announce Explorer Program 2018 which should be followed by Redmi Note 5 launch, and it won’t be surprising to see if Xiaomi actually launches Redmi 5 Plus as Redmi Note 4 successor in India, probably with an upgrade to SoC and dedicated SIM slots.
