Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 with FullView Display launched in India, price starts at Rs. 9999

The Xiaomi Mi LED smart TV 4 is an ultra slim TV and it comes with 4K resolution.

The wait is now over as the brand has brought the Mi TV 4 to the nation at an event which also saw the arrival of the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro.

"Xiaomi equipped the 5 Pro with the same 5.99" 1080x2160 display that the already announced Redmi 5 Plus has, and, in fact, the second phone it announced today, the Note 5, seems to be an Indian rebrand of that same 5 Plus, so we'll focus on the 5 Pro here, as the similarities end with the display.

Towards that, the new Note 5 Pro comes with a 5.9-inch Full HD+ display lit up by 2160 x 1080 pixels. The 4GB RAM variant is priced at Rs 13,999 while the 6GB RAM variant is priced at Rs 16,999. Last year, the company had launched the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in China, but there was no Redmi Note 5. The 5 Pro is made out of metal, as virtually all of Xiaomi's low- and mid-range phones are, which is refreshing for those who don't baby their smartphones, and in a sea of all-glass handsets.

The Redmi Note 5 is powered by 4,000 mAh battery that comes with 5V/2A charging support. Out of the box, the Redmi Note 5 Pro will also run Android 7 Nougat with MIUI 9 on top.

As for differences, the Redmi Note 5 has a 5MP selfie shooter, 12MP single rear camera, and Snapdragon 625 processor. The dual camera also have EIS (Electronic Image Stabilisation) and LED flash.

The rear meanwhile also features a fingerprint sensor placed along the center of the phone. On the front, it has a 20MP Sony IMX376 selfie camera with LED flash and Beautify 4.0 for capturing for AI-driven beautified photos. The smartphone will click portrait mode photos from the front and rear cameras. The connectivity features available on the Redmi Note 5 include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, microUSB and 3.5mm audio jack. The smartphone is backed by a 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, while there is another variant that comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of storage option.

It is powered by a 64-bit quad-core Amlogic Cortex-A53 SoC clocked up to 1.8GHz, coupled with Mali-T830 graphics. It measures 158.6 x 75.4 and weighs 181 grams.
