  • Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 with FullView Display launched in India, price starts at Rs. 9999

In addition to Mi TV 4, the company also launched the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro smartphones with improved specifications. The handset tags a price starting at Rs 13,999 for the 4GB RAM model and Rs 16,999 for the 6GB RAM version.

Android Central discovered that judging by the specs, the Redmi Note 5 is essentially a rebranded Redmi 5 Plus featuring the same Snapdragon 625 processor, 4000mAh battery, and the same memory combinations: 3GB RAM + 32GB storage and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage.

Its display size is around a 55-inch with 4K HDR picture quality. Surprisingly, the Chinese company also unveiled a pro version of the device.

Our test unit had 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage that can be increased up to 256GB using microSD card.

There is a brand new set of cameras on the back, arranged in a vertical format like you know who.

The Redmi Note 5 (Flipkart/Xiaomi) is priced at Rs 9999 (3GB/32GB) and Rs 11999 (4GB/64GB). On the connectivity front, the phone features 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, dual-SIM, and micro USB port. At a price range of Rs 9,999, the company has provided its customers with a 12-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel front camera. The thickness of 8.05mm makes it the slimmest Redmi phone.




The primary camera on the Redmi Note 5 is a single camera setup at 12-megapixels.

The Mi TV 4 features an ultra-thin design, which is nearly frameless. During the launch event, Xiaomi even compared the Mi TV 4 with high-end LED TVs from Samsung, LG, and Sony.

The main advantage of Mi TV 4 is the integration of PatchWall interface, which is exclusively customized for the Indian market. The television also comes with a modular TV design which means it can be upgraded in future.

The Mi Remote has only 11 buttons which can be used to control the set-top box. The smart TV is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Amlogic Cortex-A53 SoC clocked up to 1.8 GHz paired with Mali-T830 GPU.

Xiaomi has also announced an introductory offer on the Mi TV 4. The introductory offer is valid for the customers who buy the Mi TV 4 within the next three months. Xiaomi also tied up with some Digital broadcasting partners such as Hotstar, Alt Balaji, Sony Liv, Voot for streaming content on the TV, without connecting any device.
