When Xiaomi announced the Redmi 5 last month it was available in two variants – 2GB + 16GB and 3GB + 32GB. A visit to the official website shows that there is a new variant.
The official website shows Xiaomi has quietly launched a 4GB RAM model of the Redmi 5 Plus. Surprisingly, it comes with 32GB of storage like the 3GB model. The new variant is available in black, gold, and light blue with a ¥1099 (~$174) price tag.
If you believe the 3GB RAM variant isn’t powerful enough for you, then paying ¥200 (~$32) more for an extra 1GB of RAM shouldn’t be too much to ask. To be honest, ~$30 is a lot for just an extra 1GB of RAM.
The rest of the specs remain the same as the other two variants. There is a 5.7” 1440 x 720 display, a Snapdragon 450 processor, and a 3300mAh battery.
It also has a 12MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, rear mounted fingerprint scanner, 2.4GHz Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth 4.2, and dual SIM support (hybrid).
