The cheapest Xiaomi smartphone is considered to be the Redmi 4A. It costs 499 yuan ($75) only. This trend is going to continue on its successor as well. But we haven’t seen the Xiaomi Redmi 5A yet. Generally, the manufacturer has already launched the most of its smartphones. I guess we won’t see any flagship with high-end features this year. Probably, we should wait for the Xiaomi Mi 7 that is going to hit the market in the first quarter of 2018. But this doesn’t mean the company won’t launch other models this year. At least, we will be able to take our hands on the Redmi 5A. The latter is said to be officially announced on October 20. There are some leaks concerning this model. So keep on reading to learn more about it.
According to some leaks, the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi 5A will come with a regular Mi design. But there are too many speaker grids on the back. This is a bit confusing because Xiaomi has never used such a design for its smartphones. On the other hand, the company can bet on the sound performance like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A that focuses on the selfies. The rest of the phone has features familiar to Mi fans. Say, it comes with dimensions of 140.44 x 70.14 x 8.35mm and weight of 136g. As for the features, it sports a 5-inch 720p display, Snapdragon 435 chip, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of ROM, 5MP front shooter, 13MP rear camera, 3000mAh battery, and Android 7.1 out of the box. Actually, these features differ from the ones we saw when the phone appeared on TENNA. So we need some time to understand which of them sounds more reliable.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A is said to cost 799 yuan ($120). This is a great offer, but its predecessor is priced at 499 yuan. So we tend to think this one will be sold at the same price tag.
