Xiaomi Redmi 5 launched in China
Xiaomi recently launched their latest mid-tier smartphone, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 in China. The Chinese tech giant has finally caught up to the current trend by offering an 18:9 near bezel-less design. Not only that, but the phone has a lot more to offer. Let’s take a closer look at the phone and find out the details about it.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 packs a 5.7-inch HD (1440 x 720) IPS display with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a pixel density of 282PPI. This helps Xiaomi pack a phablet-sized display in a relatively small body. The Redmi 5 comes encased in an aluminum shell which not only looks good but also feels premium to the touch. Under the hood, the phone packs an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor along with the Adreno 506 GPU. The processor is backed by 2/3GB of RAM and 16/32GB of internal storage. The storage can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 128GB. Besides that, the phone also supports dual-sim cards and is 4G capable.
In the camera side of things, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 packs a f/2.2 12MP rear camera accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash. The phone also has a f/2.2 5MP front camera for all your selfies. Software-wise, the phone runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat with Xiaomi’s own custom skin, MIUI 9.1 layered on top of it. Just sitting below the rear camera is a fingerprint scanner embedded into the phone’s back panel. Other sensors include an accelerometer, proximity, compass, and a gyroscope. And finally, powering the device all up is a 3300mAh non-user removable battery. This will be more than enough to get users through a day worth of usage on a single charge without any issues.
