All these signs point to the imminent arrival of the Redmi 5. It is just a matter of 2 days’ wait.

The Redmi 5 is also a much anticipated phone, because its predecessor had sold in record numbers. That coupled with Xiaomi’s aggressive pricing will ensure that the Redmi 5 also sells in large numbers.
