A minor variant, mix of the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro
This model is a smartphone similar to the Spanish Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 in that it mixes features of the Chinese Note 5 and Note 5 Pro but not in the same way.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro, all the information
The two new Xiaomi phones are already official: the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Pro arrive. Average characteristics and affordable price.
The chosen processor is the Snapdragon 625 instead of 636. It has two versions of RAM and ROM, with 3 and 4 GB. The same goes for internal memory, 32 and 64 GB.
The screen is 5.99 inches but lower the resolution to HD +, 1440 x 720 px, to keep the price tight.
It will have three differentiated slots, in case we want to use a microSD along with the two SIMs that the terminal supports.
Nevertheless on the cameras it has been decided to use the dual ones of the Note 5 Pro, the same ones that the Spanish Note 5 uses. The rear camera uses a dual sensor 12 Mpx with f / 2.2 and 5 Mpx with f / 2.0.
The front camera has 16 Mpx but has an LED flash 4500K color temperature, making photos better than similarly priced models.
This front camera will also serve to unlock the mobile with our face, using algorithms to improve security.
Price and availability
This model will go on sale in India, but it would be strange to see it come out with this nomenclature and specifications to other markets. A silicone case is included in the sales package, something that we do not always see in the phones of this brand.
The price is 9999 rupees (about 125 euros to change) for the 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory model. The price is 12999 rupees (about 165 euros to change) for the model with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory.
