Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Launched; Price In India Starts From Rs 9999

Xiaomi kicks off 2018 with Redmi Note 5 Note 5 Pro in India

Xiaomi on Wednesday launched two devices - Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 successor, the Redmi Note 5, is equipped with a 5.99-inch full-screen display, packed with 4000mAh battery.

The highly anticipated Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro smartphones have been officially launched in India. The chipset has an octa-core CPU with Qualcomm's custom Kryo 260 architecture and is accompanied by an Adreno 509 GPU.

Unfortunately, there's no word on the pre-installed Android version, which probably means both the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro will be running Nougat-based MIUI at launch. Xiaomi also introduced a step up variant to the Redmi Note 5 in the form of Redmi Note 5 Pro. Unlike the iPhone X, the Redmi Note 5 Pro has a sloping frame around the camera module.

The Mi TV 4 was first at CES 2017, and comes in three screen sizes - 49, 55, and 65-inches. There is also the new Xiaomi remote for controlling the TV which has infrared as well Bluetooth connectivity options. The Smart TV runs Xiaomi's own AI-powered PatchWall UI which gives personalised recommendations based on your search preferences.

Taking hints from the teaser, it looks like Xiaomi will be launching the Mi TV 4 in India. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 comes in a single storage variant - 64GB - which is expandable via microSD card in a hybrid dual-SIM format. The Redmi Note 5 Pro, however, will support face identity. The rear camera module comprises a 12MP f/2.2 primary sensor and a 5MP f/2.0 depth sensor that work in tandem to offer features like portrait mode and "authentic bokeh effects". People are shown looking at a slim device from various angles fuelling speculations on the launch of its Mi TV.

Price: Rs 13,999 (4 GB RAM variant) and Rs 16,999 (6 GB RAM variant). It also comes paired with 4GB and 6GB of storage depending on the price you're willing to pay and a flat 64GB of storage. It packs a 3300mAh battery and offers 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Global Positioning System as connectivity options. It will go on sale via Flipkart, Mi Store and from 22nd February. The fingerprint sensor is on the rear of the device and it still has the same Micro USB charging port that supports 5V/2A input.
