Xiaomi Redmi 5 launch exclusively on Amazon India; features, availability, pricing

On Wednesday this week, Xiaomi launched the Mi TV 4A lineup in India.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 is said to be an entry-level smartphone and will succeed the Redmi 4. This is because Xiaomi has always been known to provide better, affordable products and this could mark the beginning of Xiaomi's launch-spree in the TV market as well.

Apparently, the company is going to introduce this new Lenovo S5 smartphone to compete against Xiaomi's newly launched, Xiaomi Note 5 smartphone. The company has officially announced that the smartphone will be available exclusively on Amazon. In addition to that, Xiaomi also conducted the sale of the new Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro on the same date. The phone is available in Dark Grey, Rose Gold, and Gold colour variants.

Talking about the specifications of the Redmi 5, the phone bears an HD+ display of 5.7-inches.

If we talk more about the previous leaks, the design matches to the Lenovo K520 smartphone which was spotted on a Chinese Regulatory Site, TENNA. The price of 2GB RAM and 16GB storage variant of Redmi 5 is CNY 799 which is approximately equal to Rs.7800. The new Xiaomi Redmi 5 comes fitted with the Adreno 506 GPU for rendering graphics. The Redmi 5 comes with a full screen display having an aspect ratio of 18:9. The internal storage of the phone is expandable via microSD card. To work the Redmi Note will be on MIUI 5 over Android 9 7, but the OS will most likely be updated to Android 8 in the near future. Its an octa-core processor clocking a speed of 1.8GHz.

The smartphone is expected to feature a 12MP camera for rear and 5MP camera for selfies with Beautify 3.0 to enhance selfies. You also get two speaker grills on either side of the charging port and the 3.5mm headphone jack can be found on the top. A 3300mAh battery rounds off the major hardware and the other provisions like sensors and communications suite are adequately taken care of for a device in this segment.
