We have already come across a teaser page posted on Amazon India tipping that the Redmi 5 will be exclusive to the online retailer.

Xiaomi recently announced a wider release of its MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM on additional smartphone models, and following this new software distribution phase the package which was originally rolled out last November on a handful of devices should now be available for almost two dozens Xiaomi smartphone models. Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus were launched in China a year ago and Redmi 5 Plus has been introduced in India as the Redmi Note 5. Also on the list are the Redmi Y1 and Y1 Lite budget models, the former of which was released in India back in November around the same time as the initial MIUI 9 launch took place. The company recently introduced the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro in the Indian market, and the Redmi 5 is expected to be next.
