Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro hit India

14 February 2018

Smartphone maker Xiaomi on Wednesday launched three new products in India - two smartphones and one TV. The acclaimed Redmi Note 4 was one of the best-selling smartphones in the mid-range price segment previous year, with over 9 million units shipped. That's not all, the bigger sibling of the new Redmi Note series feature vertically stacked dual rear cameras. The Redmi Note 5 comes with a price tag of Rs 9,999 for the 3GB RAM variant, while the 4GB RAM option is priced at Rs 11,999. The 6GB RAM variant is a great prospect for users who multitask a lot. Both the devices will be Flipkart-exclusive, although they're likely to be available for buying from Xiaomi's own online store.

Unfortunately, there's no word on the pre-installed Android version, which probably means both the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro will be running Nougat-based MIUI at launch. The phone has a fingerprint scanner on the back and supports hybrid dual SIM cards. More on that later. Xiaomi, to recall, globally launched the Mi A1 in India and by the looks of it, the Redmi Note 5 may be heading to that road as well. As per reports, the most awaited Redmi Note 5 might feature a 5.99 inch screen with a Full HD+ resolution with an aspect ratio of 18:9.

The new Redmi 5 Pro offers Qualcomm's freshest octa-core Snaprdragon 636 processor with Kryo 260 CPU cores clocked at 1.8GHz, and Adreno 509 graphics. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 625 processor, and there are two variants - 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM + 64GB storage.

We had a very brief moment with the Mi TV 4, and we found the TV to be very well built, and it had a very fast UI. For selfies, it comes with a 5 Megapixel front camera with LED flash.
