Redmi 5A launched in Coimbatore by Xiaomi

Redmi 5A launched in Coimbatore by Xiaomi

Xiaomi has won many hearts at home and overseas with its wide range of smartphones. The phones have been subjected to various leaks recently.

The Redmi 5 is said to come with a 5.7-inch display with 18:9 aspect ratio and HD+ resolution with 1440x720 pixels.

Xiaomi's smartphones, especially the affordable ones, gain a lot of attention, and the new Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus are touted as budget-friendly devices.

On the other hand, the Redmi 5 Plus for the Black and Gold color variants are priced at $249 (approximately Rs 16,000) while the Blue and Pink color variants are priced at $259 (approximately Rs 16,500).




Both the phones are expected to be first to feature bezel-less display in a budget smartphone segment. Both the phones will look identical, and will only differ in the display size with the Redmi 5 Plus being the larger of the two. It will be powered by a Snapdragon 625 SoC or Snapdragon 630 SoC and will be offered in two variants - 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB internal storage.

Xiaomi's Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus is scheduled for December 7 and the company is expected to bring the new devices to India soon after the launch. The phone is tipped to come in a choice of 2G + 16GB or 3GB + 32GB configurations. These are 2GB RAM plus 16GB storage, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM plus 64GB internal storage. Xiaomi has remained mum on the specs and pricing so far, barring some key confirmations such as the 18:9 display, MIUI 9, and a massive battery. It is expected to sport a 12-megapixel sensor on the back and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

Besides that, there isn't anything extraordinary about the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus. The Redmi 5 Plus may not hit the Indian shores, but the Redmi 5 will succeed the successful Redmi 4 smartphone in the Indian market.
