Xiaomi has finally jumped onto the near bezel-less design bandwagon with the phone. So what all does the phone offer for an expected price of around Rs 25,000? Well, let’s take a closer look at the phone and find out for ourselves.

Under the hood, the Redmi 5 Plus packs an octa-core Snapdragon 625 processor along with the Adreno 506 GPU. The processor is backed by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The internal memory can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 256GB. The phone also supports dual sim-cards but only at the expense of the memory card slot.
