The Chinese version of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 went on sale earlier today and went out of stock in just a few minutes. This is not unusual thing, as the first batches are in very limited quantities and there is a whopping number of people waiting on the BUY button.
The Chinese Redmi Note 5 is an upgraded Redmi Note 5 Pro available in India. It has the same design, 6″ screen and Snapdragon 636 chip. But it packs an upgraded AI-driven imaging experience with a 13MP selfie camera and a bigger 12MP sensor with dual-pixel AF on the main snapper with brighter lens. The new model also runs on Android Oreo with MIUI 9, and has support for Project Treble.
All three options – 3GB/32GB, 4GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB – were available for sale and went out of stock in a flash. The next sale should happen in a few weeks and hopefully Xiaomi would provide more units.
