Xiaomi Redmi 5 vs. Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Comparison - Who's the boss?

Redmi 5 to be available

Xiaomi has launched the Redmi 5 at Rs 7,999 in India.

Redmi 5 has been launched in India by Xiaomi. There are two storage variants as mentioned earlier. We have already said that the Redmi 5 is a much-needed upgrade for the Redmi 4 and Redmi 3s users.

And one thing which has changed is Xiaomi's Honest pricing. The smartphone is available in same four colour options as Note 5 Pro and will be available with all the choice on the sale. The Redmi 5 weights 157 grams and measures 151.8x72.8x7.7mm. The 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage variant is priced at 8,999 and the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant at ₹10,999.

The Redmi 5 is powered by the Snapdragon 450 processor coupled with Adreno 506 GPU and 2GB/3GB/4GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB/64GB of internal storage. It has a selfie camera of 5-megapixel that is assisted by a dedicated LED flash. It comes in Black, Gold, Rose Gold and Lake Blue color options.

Xiaomi has recently introduced 'Dual Pyrolytic Sheet Technology' in their smartphones for better heat dissipation which is specially optimised for Indian weather conditions. Xiaomi nicknamed its latest smartphone as the same referring to its premium features. It also offers other features such as HDR mode, autofocus and more. Interestingly, while Amazon is displaying all the 3 variants, the 64GB version is missing from Mi's own website. The Redmi 5 will be available for buying from Mi.com/in and Amazon India from March 20, and via offline channels like Mi Home stores in the days to come.

The Redmi 5 has a taller display, but the device is still fairly compact because Xiaomi has shrunk the bezels.

The launch of Redmi 5 will be an online event which is scheduled at 3 PM today.

Additionally, Xiaomi has also partnered with Reliance Jio to offer instant cash back of Rs 2,200 along with 100GB of additional data.

The Redmi 5 provides dual-SIM support with support for 4G VoLTE, and runs the Android Nougat-based MIUI 9 custom ROM.

Redmi 4 is a decent phone when it comes to the camera performance. Looking back at Xiaomi's track record, it would be safe to assume that the Redmi 5 stands a fair chance to be successful and to sell in large numbers. While the Redmi Note 5 (or the Redmi 5 Plus) starts at around Rs 10,000 the Redmi 5 is cheaper still. Will it be your next smartphone?
