Xiaomi To Launch Redmi 5 In India Today

Xiaomi's Global MIUI 9 OS Expands To More Smartphones

However, the Snapdragon 450 SoC is quite power efficient as it's built on the 14nm manufacturing process.

The phone comes in 2 GB RAM with 16 GB storage, 3 GB RAM with 32 GB storage and 4 GB RAM with 64 GB storage models. The Redmi 5 also gets this tech and is a good value-addition to the smartphone.

In some ways, Xiaomi Redmi 5 is a step forward from the Redmi 4, which was the top-selling compact smartphone in 2017. The 3GB of RAM and 32GB of ROM option ups the rate to Rs 8999. The high-end variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage space is priced at Rs. 10,999.

Apart from that, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 has a 12-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, PDAF and LED flash.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 runs on Android 7.1 Nougat based on MIUI 9. Its 3300mAh battery should last well over a day's use. Sadly, it doesn't support fast charging. In the camera department, the Redmi 5 and Redmi Note 5 shares the same camera sensors. The Redmi 5 has the dual pyrolytic sheet that is optimized for heat dissipation in the Indian environmental conditions.

To recall, the Redmi 5 was first launched in China in December a year ago alongside the Redmi 5 Plus. For the Redmi 5, the top and bottom bezels have been reduced.

Today, Xiaomi has launched the Redmi 5, the follow-up to their highly successful Redmi 4. Emphasis lies on thermal efficiency - and improved battery life - as well as all-round performance. The device comes with Full View screen and is powered by Snapdragon 450 SoC. In terms of design, the Redmi 5 has a metal panel at the back with plastic framing on its sides. There's 2.5D curved glass on the front and on-screen keys for navigation. It comes in four color options such as Lake Blue, Gold, Black and Rose Gold. Buyers will get a free ultra-slim cover with the smartphone. The powerful smartphone that comes at an affordable price has been promoted extensively by Xiaomi on social media platforms Facebook and Twitter.

However, it is highly speculated that the Redmi 5 could be priced around Rs 7,000 for the base variant and the model with better specs may be priced around Rs 8,000.

Nokia 2 is available online for Rs 6,999.

Redmi 5A, another value-for-money smartphone from Xiaomi, is available in India at a starting price of Rs 5,999. If you look at the Redmi 5 closely, the device is radically different from its predecessor.
