Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 Pro is supposed to launch in China next month. The official dates are not known as of yet, but the handset has passed TENAA which signals the release to be close. “India’s Camera Beast” handset appeared on TENAA with three model numbers MEC7S, MET7S and MEE7S. These are probably attributed to the three different colours. The images of these model numbers clearly show the Redmi Note 5 Pro, hence clearing our doubts.
