This rise in Xiaomi last year was due to the launch of smartphones like the Redmi Note 4. Redmi 4 series and the Xiaomi Mi A1 Global launch in India.

As far as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is concerned, this smartphone became the best selling smartphone on Flipkart last year as well as the best selling smartphone in India in the budget segment with more than 1 Million units sold. Now, we have known that Xiaomi will launch a new Redmi series smartphone on February 14 but there has been no confirmation from the company about the same other than just the #giveme5 hashtag which is for the 5 series.

Now, there are rumours that this smartphone launch could be for the Redmi 5 Plus or even the Redmi Note 5. Now, we can put all these rumours to rest and confirm that the smartphone to be launched is the Redmi Note 5.
