Xiaomi aims to narrow Thai digital divide with accessibly priced Redmi 5A

The company has sent out media invites for the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 launch event scheduled for February 14. It makes sense for the firm to launch a new color variant for Redmi 5A because Valentine's Day is just around the corner and it would make up a good reason for buyers. Honor 9 Lite smartphone is recently launched in India and the biggest highlight of the phone is the quad camera on the phone.

Though the invite doesn't mention any detail of exactly which will be launched next week, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 was launched in China in December a year ago, and it may be India's turn next.

The most talked and speculated android phone the Xiaomi Redmi 5 is all set to launch in India. The Redmi 5 Plus 3GB RAM variant is sold for CNY 999 (roughly Rs. 10,200) in China, and the 4GB RAM variant is sold for CNY 1,299 (roughly Rs. 13,200). It runs the MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat, although Oreo upgrade is expected. Xiaomi Redmi 5 has a battery of 4000mAh while the Honor 9 Lite has a battery of 3000mAh.

The Redmi series of smartphones have always featured 5-inch display whereas the Redmi Note lineup have featured 5.5-inch screen. It is backed by a 5000mAh battery.

Is Xiaomi ready to bring the Redmi 5 to India? However, the term exists ever since the company launched the handset three years ago.

On the camera front, the Redmi 5 possesses a 12-mp rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and PDAF, and a 5-mp front camera with soft-light selfie flash. Meanwhile, Xiaomi Mi 6X was spotted online with an iPhone X-like rear camera housing that could be the successor to Mi A1. The phone supports the standard suite of connectivity options including 4G VoLTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, a 3.5 mm headphone jack (thankfully!), and a microUSB port (no USB-C yet, sorry folks). These are the starting costs of course, as Xiaomi will probably sell multiple variants varying between 2GB and 4GB of RAM and 16GB and 64GB of ROM.
