The successor of Redmi 4A is somewhat interesting, thanks to the stupendously low price. Xiaomi Redmi 5A features a 5-inch 720p display. The heart of the flagship is the low-end Snapdragon 425 SoC (Quad-Core, 1.4GHz) coupled with 2GB RAM and 16GB storage (supporting MicroSD card up to 128GB). Furthermore, on the rear, we have the 13MP camera supporting PDAF phase focus technology. Meanwhile, there’s a 5MP front shooter as well. The phone is powered by a 3000mAh battery and supports Dual card. The best part is that the phone follows up the latest MIUI 9 upgrade.
The low point of the flagship is that it doesn’t feature any fingerprint reader.
Concerning the design and appearance, the phone appears to be a classic from the old Redmi series. The chassis is plastic which is somewhat cheap but it’s fine as the Redmi ‘A’ family is the best budget-friendly series featuring the lowest price. The phone inherits the tradition three touch-based LED buttons, rare speakers, and thickness. However, Redmi 5A weighs only 137 grams.
Moreover, the phone will be available in three colors: Champagne Gold, Rose Gold, and Platinum Silver. The price of the flagship is incredibly cheap which is 599 yuan ($91). Xiaomi Redmi 5A will start selling today at 6 pm and 10 pm (Beijing Time) at Xiaomi Mall, Xiaomi Mi Stores, Xiaomi Online Store, Jingdong, lynx, Suning Tesco, and some retailers.
Indeed, Xiaomi Redmi 5A is the Cheapest Xiaomi Smartphone Till Date!
