The Chinese smartphone maker has issued a statement saying, "In order to restrict reselling, we have chose to remove COD payment option for the upcoming sales of Redmi Note 5 Pro on mi.com and Flipkart (Only for initial few sales)". Launched in November past year, the smartphone boasts of an "8-day battery life" and comes with a dedicated microSD card slot.

However, we like to remind our readers that some Xiaomi phones (both Mi and Redmi series), particularly low-end models, will not be able to get all the MIUI 9 features due to their hardware limitations. This means, in India we can expect the Redmi 5 2GB RAM + 16GB storage model to be priced around Rs 7,000, while the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage could cost around Rs 8,500. The two speaker grills are placed on either side of the charging port and there's also the 3.5mm headphone jack on the top edge of the device. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, coupled with 2GB, 3GB and 4GB of RAM.

The Chinese electronics company has created a niche in budget smartphone market in India thanks to its history of giving incredible value for money devices. The other goodies on board the Redmi 5 are Android 7.1 Nougat topped with MIUI 9, 4G VoLTE, dual SIM support and a 3300mAh battery. On the camera front, Redmi 5 includes a 12-megapixel sensor on the back with 1.25-micron pixels for improved photography and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with Beautify 3.0 and Soft-Toned selfie light for better selfies.
