The Redmi Note 5 Pro was launched in India back in February last year with a price tag of Rs. 13,999 for the 4GB RAM variant, whereas its 6GB RAM model arrived at Rs. 16,999.
Notably, Xiaomi increased the price of the 4GB RAM variant of the Redmi Note 5 Pro in May last year, due to changes in PCBA import taxes and rupee depreciation. The company, however, announced a price cut last November that brought back the original launch price of Rs. 13,999.
Xiaomi on Monday announced a similar price drop for the Mi A2. The smartphone that was previously available at Rs. 15,999 for the 6GB RAM variant went down to Rs. 13,999, while its 6GB RAM model that carried a price tag of Rs. 18,999 in the past dropped to Rs. 15,999.
