Xiaomi’s Desh Ka smartphone, or the smartphone that has been designed from grounds up for India is the Redmi 5A available at just ₹4,999 ($77.5) is the ultra affordable smartphone launched in India.
The company says that it is basically for people who are just moving onto smartphone from feature phones but doesnt compromise much on the hardware and software.
The Redmi 5A India version, will for one, come with a dedicated slot for two nano SIM cards and one micro-SD card for storage expansion. Secondly, Xiaomi is also introducing a 3GB RAM/32GB storage version of the Redmi 5A in India. In China only one 2GB RAM/16GB variant is available. Elsewhere, the Redmi 5A houses the same dual graphite sheet – to save the phone from over-heating — which the company ships inside its premiere phones like the Mi A1 and also includes a power charger that can adapt to India’s fluctuating power scenarios.
Xiaomi is totally proud of this phone just like they were, with its predecessor, the Redmi 4A, of which 4 Million units were sold.
The Redmi 5A comes with a 5-inch HD IPS LCD display with a 720×1280 pixels resolution. The quality of the panel may not be as good as the one on-board the Redmi 4, but, at its price point, the Redmi 5A can afford to get away with it. Colours look rich and vibrant and there’s a manual mode inside that helps achieve slightly better results. There’s also an in-built reading mode that turns colours to the warmer end of the spectrum for night-time reading.
On the inside, the Redmi 5A comes with an entry-level 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processer coupled with Adreno 308 GPU and up to 3GB of RAM. The phone comes with up to 32GB of internal storage which is further expandable by up to 128GB via a dedicated micro-SD card slot. The dual-SIM phone supports 4G LTE and VoLTE. Just like the Redmi 4A, the Redmi 5A is also the most powerful (and most power-efficient) smartphone that you can buy in the Indian market right now.
The phone is also Made in India, just like Xiaomi’s 90% of other phones which adds a vibe fo it. If you are looking for a phone at dirt-cheap price and this thing makes your job done, this is a steal deal. Grab one from December 7 on Flipkart, mi.com/in or thier exclusive Mi stores.
