Just a day prior the launch of its upcoming Redmi 6 lineup, Xiaomi is looking to ramp up the sales of its popular and best-selling Redmi Note 5 Pro smartphone by attracting the users towards the new ‘Flame Red’ color variant.
Yes, the red-color Redmi Note 5 Pro variant that landed in China earlier in June is finally making its way to India tomorrow at 10:00 AM. The Redmi India Twitter account has been teasing the launch of this new color, with the tagline ‘Get RED-y to be mesmerized’ for the past couple of days.

The teasers fall in line with a tip we had received a couple of months ago, regarding the launch of the red-colored Redmi Note 5 Pro variant in India. A banner for the device was spotted on Xiaomi India’s website, with the same Rs 14,999 price tag as all the current variant. We don’t expect a price hike for this stunning new color variant.
