Xiaomi Redmi 5A: Hands on and first impressions

Xiaomi Redmi 5 image leak specifications

As expected, Xiaomi has launched Redmi 5A in India.

Xiaomi is riding high on its successful Redmi series smartphone in India, and now enjoying the title of being the No. 1 smartphone manufacturer in the country.

While the smartphone's exact pricing remains a mystery at this point, it is likely that Micromax will price it competitively against Xiaomi's offering.

The handset also features a 13MP main camera with f/2.2 aperture, phase detection autofocus and LED flash, a 5MP front-snapper with f/2.2 aperture, and 4,100mAh battery with fast-charging technology. Xiaomi took to Weibo, which is the most popular microblogging platform in China, to share this information about the upcoming smartphones i.e. Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus. The company has been campaigning and touting the Redmi 5A as a device for the masses, something that essentially brings down the entry level barrier for an Android smartphone.

Samsung's Galaxy S8 is Now Available in Burgundy Red
This premium full view display is the defining feature of the current Samsung flagship devices, Galaxy S8 , S8+ and Note 8. Well, we now know that the Burgundy Red variant will be made available in South Korea from today i.e 28 November.

The Redmi 5A is a bit different from its Chinese counterpart in that it has the above mentioned 3GB/32GB model and a dedicated microSD card slot instead of a hybrid one.

The device will run MIUI 9 based on Android Nougat 7.1, out of the box. The Redmi 5A also known as "Desh ka smartphone" is an affordable device launched in India for ₹5,999. A successor to the Redmi 4A launched in March this year, the Redmi 5A is nearly the same device and you'd be hard pressed to find any major difference between the two.

The Redmi 5A will sport a 13 megapixel primary camera, with an f/2.2 aperture. To be eligible for the offer, a customer must do the first recharge on the Redmi 5A, meaning you should get a new Reliance Jio 4G SIM card to get the Rs 1000 cashback vouchers. The device comes in two variants: 2GB RAM with 16GB storage and 3GB RAM with 32GB storage. Xiaomi is expected to launch this ground-breaking and budget-friendly smartphone in Pakistan, expected to cost under 10,000 PKR. The offer is valid on both Flipkart and mi.com. Furthermore, handset also comes up with IR blaster at the top with 3.5mm jack.
