Xiaomi launches Redmi 5A for Rs 4999 onwards

  • Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus full details price and specifications

It will be available exclusively on Flipkart. The discount is a limited-period offer. The Redmi 5A runs on the same Snapdragon 425 chipset underneath, same as the Redmi 4A, and even retains the same set of camera sensors - a 13MP sensor for the rear and 5MP for selfies.

Packing similar hardware & features, Xiaomi's Redmi 4A and Redmi 5A are more or less the same.

The company already has two smartphone manufacturing plants in Sri City, Andhra Pradesh where more than 95 per cent of its smartphones (sold in India) are assembled locally. On the storage front, the Redmi 5A offers 16GB/32GB of internal memory along with a microSD card that can accommodate up to 128GB of storage. Secondly, the 3GB RAM/32GB storage version of the Redmi 5A is an India-exclusive since in China only one 2GB RAM/16GB variant is available.

"The event was addressed by Manu Jain, Vice President, Xiaomi and Managing Director, Xiaomi who said", We strongly believe that the best of technology should be made accessible to as many people as possible because technology can improve lives. The smartphone will go on sale for the first time on December 7 at 12:00PM via Flipkart, mi.com, and other Xiaomi offline stores and partners.

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. The company has been pushing the device as "Desh ka smartphone" and is clearly aimed at appealing to the masses. The Xiaomi Redmi 5A comes with a Notifications LED that turns on while charging and blinks when there are unread notifications. However, there is no version including 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage anymore. This is the success of budget phone Redmi 4A. However, the 3GB RAM variant of the Redmi 5A will still retail for Rs 6,999. Since it resides under the budget smartphone segment, the Redmi 5A doesn't sport fancy 2.5D glass on its 5-inch LCD display for scratch resistance. This is a good feature as you can use two SIM cards as well as a microSD card on the phone. Up front, there is a 5-megapixel selfie snapper. The smartphone is powered by a 3000mAh battery which the company claims will last for eight days in standby.
