The dreaded Band 20 is missing from the spec?

'Pre-sale ' so is this a pre-order?

Had NFC on my last 2 mobiles and yet to find a use for it??
This is micro usb still, also no confirmation of treble.

Just because it ships with Oreo you can't assume as the Chinese xiaomi's don't conform to Google CTS

Same here, have had nfc on 2 samsung phones and never found a need for it.
The launch price for this 3gb/32gb was 1099 Yuan = £124.58
4gb/64gb was 1399 Yuan = £158.59
6gb/64gb was 1699 Yuan = £192.60
So you can get an idea of the 3rd party mark up and i wouldn't be surprised if the Global version when it arrives will be a little bit more again

Yes, but if you are patient the price will come down to more reasonable levels. There is literally no stock around at the moment, give it a month or 2 and there will be plentiful stock and more competition for sales. I will probably bite at 150/160 quid for the 4GB/64GB Global Version. I can wait, I have a perfectly fine phone at the moment (ZUK Z2, which I won't lose any/much money on when I sell it)...

You can pre-order the 4gb/64gb here es.aliexpress.com/ite…tml for £167.60 so only £9 dearer than the launch price of £158.59 and it says global rom 43-63 days for delivery via aliexpress shipping

Yep, that price is encouraging but I will wait. I like the idea of being an early adopter but don't like the idea of paying the price for being one

Yep i think i would do the same they are saying global rom with band 20 but if this is the china model announced today i'd be wary because in the past the band 20 models had a different modem not just a case of flashing with global rom
I am so glad I returned the iPhone 7 plus I bought in the latest Very Apple promotion. Looking forward to replacing my Note 4 global 4gb 64gb with one of these 5's instead!

It doesn't have either, I don't care what some rubbish incorrect article says, look on the xiaomi site and the videos of the phone that are out, it's micro usb and the same none quick charge (but still fast) 5v2a.

Looking to replace my redmi note 4, and want quick charge, any suggestions?
How would this compare to the Huawei P Smart which seems to be the best budget smart phone on YouTube?

This is the better of the two, but lacks B20 - side by side comparison: m.gsmarena.com/com…961
There seems to be a model called the same released last year.....is this the same model? YouTube have videos dating back to mid 2017. Slightly confused...

The pics show the Pro, but listing just the normal Note 5.....

Not the same - the 2017 one you're talking about is the smaller, lower-spec Redmi 5 - differences here: m.gsmarena.com/com…120
