Xiaomi Redmi 5A Sale Debuts in India from 12 PM IST

Xiaomi has launched the Redmi Successor Smartphone Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in China. While the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 PLus share a number of similarities, they are also quite different.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus feature 18:9 screens, but there's a difference in the screen size.

As for the cameras, both devices are treated equally and get a 12 MP rear camera and 5 MP selfie camera. It comes in blue, pink, gold, and black.

The Redmi 5 is priced at CNY 799 (roughly Rs 7,800) for the 2GB /16GB variant, while the 3GB/32GB variant is priced at CNY 899 (roughly Rs 8,800). The Redmi 5 Plus will also be shipped in two RAM and internal storage options.

These are definitely low-priced phones by global standards, then, with the 5 Plus sounding like particularly good value. Its aspect ratio is 18:9, just like most phones with a bezel-less display. These phones will go on sale in China starting December 12. Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus feature a metal unibody design and rounded corners. The smartphone runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat based MIUI 9 and it will be backed up by 4000 mAh battery. The Redmi 5 Plus cost is CNY 999 (generally Rs. 9,700) for the 3GB RAM/32GB capacity variation, while the 4GB RAM/64GB capacity variation cost is CNY 1,299 (generally Rs. 12,700).

We're still not sure about the Indian launch of the 2 new handsets but we're pretty sure Xiaomi will hurry the launch before the end of December. It gauges 151.8 x 72.8 x 7.7 mm, and weighs 157 grams.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 has a 5.7-inch 18:9 screen with 1440 x 720 pixels resolution, whereas Redmi 5 Plus features a 5.99-inch 18:9 display with 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution.

Xiaomi's love with the Snapdragon 625 SoC continues with the Redmi 5 Plus as it uses the same SoC.
