Last year, several tech giants painted there smartphones in red and there was barely any device that did not get the glossy red colour. In 2017, Apple started the trend with their (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus — something that they have done again with the iPhone 8 in the form of (PRODUCT) RED variants. Rival manufacturers such as OnePlus, Honor, OPPO, Samsung and Xiaomi also rolled out special red colour variants of their popular models. Xiaomi did a red coloured variant of the popular Mi A1 last year and it seems that they are willing to do the same for the trending Redmi Note 5 Pro.
Xiaomi has released a poster depicting a red version of the popular Redmi Note 5 on a Chinese website. The phone's rear panel sports a shade of red that looks pretty similar to the red variant of the Mi A1. However, unlike the Mi A1, the red Redmi Note 5's face wears white narrow-bezels, which is more close to (PRODUCT) RED iPhone 7 models from 2017. The Redmi Note 5 Pro is sold as the Redmi Note 5 in the Chinese market. While the red variant of the Chinese Redmi Note 5 is scheduled for a launch soon, India could also see the Redmi Note 5 Pro in the red shade; although nothing has been confirmed about the same. Currently, the Redmi Note 5 Pro comes in four colours — Lake Blue, Black, Gold and Rose Gold. It is not yet known whether Xiaomi will include a special red theme or wallpaper with this variant; however, we hope they do that to make the experience unique.
Keeping up with the trend, Samsung recently released a Burgundy Red version of their last year's flagship Galaxy S8 in India. The Burgundy Red version was only available in South Korea. The Burgundy Galaxy S8 will come to India on April 13th for the price of Rs 49,990. As for the (PRODUCT) RED version of the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, the base 64GB variant starts at Rs 67,940.
