Xiaomi Redmi Note 5- the upcoming budget smartphone is already stealing the attention with rumoured specifications.

Questions about the Indian variant of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is increasing with every passing day, but still, we don’t have any conclusive evidence on what Xiaomi has under its sleeves.
