Xiaomi Redmi 5A hits India

Already, the Redmi 5A's price is attractive, and with this offer, Xiaomi is helping Reliance Jio to build its customer base. From the innovative Mi Mix 2 to the affordable selfie series, the Y series, Xiaomi has it all.

According to Xiaomi, "Redmi 5A is the smartphone for everyone". It also has a 5 megapixels front camera with f/2.0 aperture. It has a plastic body that looks like metal, similar to the Redmi 4A. It has gentle curves on the edges. Xiaomi's Redmi 5A is now available in India, and it labeled "Desh Ka Smartphone".

Antonio Conte fires warning at Eden Hazard ahead of Chelsea v Swansea
Antonio Conte has warned Chelsea they "must be worried" by Manchester City's spending power ahead of the January transfer window. Conte also praised Swansea manager, Paul Clement who was an assistant to Carlo Ancelotti at Chelsea during the 2010/11 season.

Like its predecessor, the Redmi 4A is powered by the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset paired with 2 GB of RAM. On the software front, the device runs on Android Nougat-based MIUI 9. You can expand the memory of the phone upto 128GB by using a microSD card. It comes with an LED flash and supports HDR. For photography, the smartphone is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera with Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and a f/2.2 aperture. It offers 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS + GLONASS connectivity features. It has all the requisite sensors on board. The performance is good enough for a budget smartphone, and multitasking and web browsing were quite smooth - although I really didn't try it in many real-world scenarios with a multitude of third-party apps that one would do typically. At the price point at which it is being sold, Redmi 5A is the best option available in the market. The 3GB variant costs Rs. 6999.

It is worth noting that the Rs. 4,999/- price is an offer limited to the first 50 lakh units only. After this threshold is reached, the handset's price will go up to ₹5,999, which was actually the starting price of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A too. Xiaomi says it will start shipping the device from December 7 through Flipkart, Mi.com/in, and the company's own stores and preferred partners. MIUI 9 offers one of the more intuitive and functional UIs, and there are nifty utilities and tools that improve one's overall Android experience.
