Xiaomi Redmi 5 expected in India on February 14


Xiaomi India has sent out invites for a launch event on 14 February, teasing the arrival of the Redmi 5 in India with a ‘5’ logo in the invite. This will be the first device launch from Xiaomi in India this year, and while the launch of the Redmi 5 is almost certain, it is not known yet if Xiaomi is also going to bring the Redmi 5 Plus (or the Redmi Note 5) in India along with its entry-level smartphone.

Xiaomi had launched the Redmi 5 in China back in December last year – the Redmi 5 is the company’s latest smartphone in the low-end segment. Along with the Redmi 5, Xiaomi also announced the Redmi 5 Plus, revealing a new ‘Plus’ brand featuring beefed up specs and a bigger display.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 features a big 5.7-inch display with HD+ resolution, with an 18:9 aspect ratio display. The phone is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 chipset and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat based MIUI 9.

Other features of the phone include up to 4GB RAM and 32GB internal storage, a 12MP rear camera and a front facing 5MP camera. Both the front and the rear cameras are assisted by LED flash for improved low-light performance.
