Earlier this year, Xiaomi launched Redmi Note 5 Pro smartphone in India with up to 6GB RAM and up to 64GB internal storage. The company launched the same smartphone in China as the Redmi Note 5, with better specifications.
After launching the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage model of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 in China, the company has now introduced a new variant that comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, adding to the already available models — 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM, 6GB RAM + 64GB storage.
Even though the new variant comes with increased storage capacity, the pricing remains the same as 6GB RAM + 64GB storage model — 1,699 Yuan, which roughly converts to $250. It will be available for purchase in China from 27th July.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 comes with a Full HD+ display with screen resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and 2.5D curved glass. Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 636 processor. It comes with AI Dual Camera that features a 12-megapixel primary sensor and a secondary sensor of 5-megapixel that captures depth.
The camera comes equipped with features like dual autofocus, EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization), HDR, Burst Mode and Panorama. It can capture amazing AI driven portrait shots by naturally blurring the background. Apart from shooting full HD videos, it can also record 720p slow-motion videos.
On the front side, there’s a 13-megapixel sensor with a Soft-LED flash that also carries support for AI portrait mode. The inclusion of pre-HDR allows it to intelligently detect the background light to capture selfie shots in dim-light conditions by configuring the front LED flash accordingly.
It runs on Android 8.1 (Oreo) with Treble support with a layer of the company’s own custom interface MIUI on top. The phone draws power from a 4,000mAh battery that supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 fast charging.
