Xiaomi launches the Redmi 5A in India for just ₹4999 ($77)

Xiaomi Redmi 5A made in India entry-level phone for masses launched, price starts at Rs 4999

To recall, the Redmi 5A smartphone was launched in China last month. As far as pricing is concerned Xiaomi seems to have hit the bulls eye once again. The Xiaomi Redmi 5A comes with a Notifications LED that turns on while charging and blinks when there are unread notifications. After this threshold is reached, the handset's price will go up to ₹5,999, which was actually the starting price of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A too. Running Android-based MIUI 9 out of the box, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A sports a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) display and is powered by the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, clubbed with 2GB/3GB RAM and Adreno 308.

While the Redmi 5A is officially priced at Rs 5999 for the 2GB/16GB variant, Xiaomi has made a decision to grant a Rs 1000 discount to the first 5 million buyers. Xiaomi has given users the option to expand storage up to 256 GB using an external microSD card via a dedicated microSD card slot. For photography, the smartphone is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera with Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) and a f/2.2 aperture. This is a dual-SIM 4G VoLTE phone, and has a separate microSD card slot. Just like the Redmi 4A, the Redmi 5A also does not ship with a fingerprint scanner. On the front you get a 5-megapixel snapper. The Redmi 4A came with a 3,120mAh battery, while this year's model only offers a 3,000mAh one. Naturally, the design of the Xiaomi Redmi 5A is not the one of a flagship handset. Xiaomi says the MIUI 9 offers explosively fast launch times along with new features such as Smart Assistant and Universal Search. However, with the latest discount from the company, the new-gen Redmi 5A is definitely the cheapest Xiaomi phone ever.

In terms of cost, Xiaomi Redmi 5A has been priced at Rs 5,999 and Rs 6,999.
