Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 or Redmi 5 Plus? The trouble with names
Xiaomi definitely has trouble with names. Not only with problematic company name (try to pronounce it, you probably will do it wrong) but also with names of their smartphones. Good examples are Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi Note 5 with their different global and India names.
Let’s start with Redmi 5 Plus. That is the global name because Xiaomi decides to re-brand it in India, as the Redmi Note 5. On the other hand, Redmi Note 5 in India were introduced as Redmi Note 5 Pro. It starts to be hard to catch up. That’s why we created some useful graphic.
Names are not the only differences both phone models have. Other ones are different camera and front sensors location. Maybe changes are not significant but it could be a problem while you have to buy a smartphone case or tempered glass. That’s why is good to remember that while shopping.
