The 5th iteration of the famous Redmi Lineup’s is now official. Although Xiaomi only unveiled the Redmi Note 5A as of now, the company should launch various versions in the Redmi Note 5 lineup this fall.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A with its A label is all about Affordability and Awesome Cameras. The phone packs a 16MP front camera with LED flash and a wide-angle sensor for group selfies. Xiaomi is obviously trying to compete with its selfie centric competitors like Oppo and Gionee.
A 13MP camera can be found on the back. Since it’s the Note series, the display here is a 5.5-inch. The resolution, however, is only HD (1280 x 720) netting a pixel density of just 267ppi. The IPS display has 2.5D glass, 450 nits brightness, 1000: 1 Contrast ratio, and 70% NTSC color gamut.
Despite being an affordable phone, the Redmi Note 5A has a metal body on the back and gorilla glass on the front. You also get the latest MIUI 9 based on Android Nougat 7.0. It is powered by a dated octacore Snapdragon 435 SoC and a 3080mAh battery.
There are 2 versions of the phone: Standard and Premium. The Premium version comes with a fingerprint sensor, 3 or 4GB RAM, 16MP front camera, and 32 or 64GB storage. The Standard version (cheapest version) has a quad-core Snapdragon 425 SoC, 5MP front camera, 2GB RAM, 16GB ROM, and lacks fingerprint sensor.
Both these variants of the Redmi Note 5A boasts a dedicated dual SIM slots (4G) and a dedicated microSD support (upto 128GB). Color options include Champagne Gold, Rose Gold and Platinum Silver.
