  • Xiaomi launches Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus on December 7

After teasing for the past few days, Xiaomi today released the 'Desh Ka Smartphone'.

On the camera front, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 to come with a 12 Megapixel or Primary Camera which would be located at the back side.

Especially for the Xiaomi Redmi 5A users, Reliance Jio has introduced a new tariff plan of Rs 199, which offers 1GB data per day, unlimited voice calls without any limit, and unlimited SMS for 28 days. "With Redmi 5A we take another step in offering a great all-round experience for users looking for their first smartphone".

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 runs Android 7.1 Nougat operating system topped with MIUI 9. Since the Bharat 4 was launched at Rs4,999, we expect the Bharat 5 to be priced under the Rs.6,000 range. Xiaomi India head, Manu Kumar Jain tweeted, "Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi India Managing Director, revealed the Jio cashback offer following the launch of the Redmi 5A on Thursday". The phone will carry the same design and size of the Redmi 5 smartphone, the only differences you will notice will be the processor and other software configurations.

The smartphone will be available with two storage options, 16GB and 32GB. The 3GB variant costs Rs. 6999. The Rs 1000 cashback should theoretically help Reliance Jio retain a customer with high ARPU for a time period of 22-months (12Months+ 10 Coupons) since only one discount coupon can be used for every recharge.




Xiaomi has finally launched the Redmi 5A in India.

Apart from this, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 would be equipped with a 3,200 mAh of battery capacity. It comes with an LED flash and supports HDR.

The smartphone will be available for sale from December 7 exclusively on Flipkart and Mi Official website.

The smartphone has a 5MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture with a decent recording quality.

The dual-sim phone also has IR-blaster which can control home appliances with Xiaomi's Mi Remote App.
