Yesterday Xiaomi unveiled its new Redmi members, the Redmi 5 and 5 Plus that get upgraded with a new, modern design, featuring the trending 18:9 aspect ratio. Being in the entry-level series of Xiaomi, both devices have affordable prices, definitely lower than their specs. Unlike other companies that announce a model and make it available weeks or even months later, the Redmis will hit the market on December 12th, just a few days after their announcement. And online retailers are starting to accept preorder, like Oppomart that has already updated their website, accepting preorders for both models that will start shipping in about a week! Pricing is very close to the official, starting from $139.
