As we mentioned, Xiaomi is expected to launch the Redmi 5 in India on February 14.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 sports a 5.7-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1440x720 pixels along with an 18:9 aspect ratio. In the list of positive traits will add metal case, module LTE and front-facing flash next to the camera at 2 MP. Moreover, the Redmi 5 comes with a 3300mAh battery and features a rather disappointing and dated Micro USB port on the bottom. Both the smartphones run on MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1 Nougat.
The dimensions of Smartron tphone P are 148.3 x 72.2 x 8.9 mm, whereas the Xiaomi Redmi 5A is 140.4 x 70.1 x 8.4 mm. But this will do little to quell enthusiasm for a phone that according to the latest renders will sport an 18:9 5.99-inch Full HD+ display. Xiaomi invited for a press event on February 14 in New Delhi. Feng says that the OS will be available for most of the devices later this year.
There's an excitement around the launch of the Redmi 5 in India.
Previously, a Xiaomi super moderator had claimed that, the recently launched Redmi 5 Plus is going to remain Xiaomi's only large-screened affordable option and the company has apparently dropped the Note moniker altogether as of this moment. In terms of price, the Redmi 5 starts at CNY 799 (approx Rs 8140) and the Redmi 5 Plus at CNY 999 (about Rs 10180).
The Redmi Note series has looked pretty identical from the front for quite some time now. Before installing the recovery and using the root of Magisk or SuperSU, it is required to unlock the bootloader. The former is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC, coupled with 2GB/ 3GB/ 4GB RAM and 16GB/ 32GB inbuilt storage.
We might be seeing these phones make a splash at the MWC later this month.
