Xiaomi Launches “Compact Powerhouse” Redmi 5 in India, Pricing Starts at Rs. 7999



Redmi 5

Xiaomi has been teasing their next product launch, dubbed “Compact Powerhouse” in India. Finally they’ve launched the phone, the Redmi 5 in India.


Talking about the phone, it comes with a 5.7inch HD+ display, with Corning Gorilla glass protection. It’s a departure from the previous Redmi series of phones, as the Redmi line (Redmi 1s, 2, 3s & 4), all stood for compact form factor. And this marks a shift from that, albeit a small one.

Xiaomi has been touting this as “Compact Powerhouse“, what’s making this a compact powerhouse per se? Its the chip underneath. The phone is powered by a Snapdragon 450, which is pretty powerful compared to the other phones and processors in the price range. Snapdragon 450 is really Snadragon 625 mini, it’s basically an under clocked version of the SoC. SD 625 is clocked at 2.0 GHz, while SD 450 is clocked at 1.8 GHz. Also they both feature the same GPU, Adreno 506.

So the Snapdragon 450, paired with a 720p display makes it as powerful as the Redmi Note 5, which is powered by SD 625 and has a Full HD+ display. And yes, this blows out any other device in this price segment when it comes to performance.

Xiaomi Launches Redmi Note 5 in China, It’s Our Note 5 Pro with Different Cameras!



Redmi Note 5

After all the speculations, Xiaomi has finally launched their blockbuster device Redmi Note 5 in their home market, China. Firstly, the phone looks just like the Redmi Note 5 Pro, that was launched in India. But there are some key differences with the device that they launched in China, which is mainly the cameras.

Yes, the main difference is the cameras with Redmi Note 5 Pro in India.

The rear camera also features dual PD dual-core speed focus for fast autofocus. The secondary sensor on the back is the same though, the same 5MP one.

The front camera is also different in this. While the Indian version comes with a 20MP front camera, the Chinese RN5 ships with a 13MP one. The front shooter also supports portraits like in the Indian version, but here it’s dubbed AI portraits, we’re not sure if there is any big changes in the algorithm used in that and our version.

Next major change is the software the phone ships with. Redmi Note 5 ships with MIUI 9 based on Android Oreo 8.1. It also comes with Project Treble support. It also comes with the gesture support out of the box (much like the iPhone X gestures).
