Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro
Xiaomi is starting 2018 on a high note in India with a blockbuster event today where it broke new ground with the launch of three products. The world got its first glimpse of Redmi Note 5 Pro in India today, and for the first time ever Xiaomi has launched its TV in a global market outside of China.
Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro bring full screen display innovations at an amazing price to Mi Fans in India, starting from INR 9,999. The wildly successful Redmi Note 4, which was the top-selling smartphone in India in 2017 as per Counterpoint, has come to represent Xiaomi’s commitment to quality and design at an amazing price. As users have come to expect from the Redmi Note series, these two new smartphones will exceed expectations in terms of design, camera and performance.
In a significant move for Xiaomi globally, Mi TV is making its way outside of China for the first time ever. Mi LED Smart TV 4 138.8 cm (55)* is the world’s thinnest LED TV at just 4.9mm slim, and comes with an intelligent content-first PatchWall software completely redesigned from the ground up for India. Starting from INR 39,999, Mi LED TV 4 is set to completely transform the TV industry in India.
Redmi Note 5 Pro—World’s first Snapdragon 636 smartphone
Redmi Note 5 Pro is the world’s first smartphone to feature the octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 636. As part of the Snapdragon™ 636 package, Redmi Note 5 Pro features Qualcomm® Kryo™ cores which are typically only seen on the flagship-grade Snapdragon 800-series of SoCs. With AnTuTu benchmark scores of well over 100K, Redmi Note 5 Pro blows the competition out of the water with its eight Kryo 260 cores, Adreno 509 GPU, and up to 6GB of DDR4X RAM.
For people who love taking photos, Redmi Note 5 Pro is a dream come true. It features a 20MP front camera with an LED Selfie-light, which uses complex algorithms to deliver the perfect selfie—now also in portrait mode.
On the rear, Redmi Note 5 Pro makes use of a dual camera setup, consisting of a 12MP + 5MP sensor to deliver mind-blowingly detailed pictures and portraits that have a sharp focus on the subject, with a creamy, blurred-out background.
To top it off, Redmi Note 5 Pro, for the first time, features Beautify 4.0—a method to software-tune images that uses algorithms developed especially for Mi Fans in India to adapt to beards and accessories such as bindis and nose rings.
Featuring an 18:9 full HD+ display with rounded corners, Redmi Note 5 Pro fits just as well in the hands while giving 12.5 percent more display area compared with smartphones using 16:9 screens.
Redmi Note 5 Pro is priced at INR 13,999 for 4GB RAM, 64GB storage variant and INR 16,999 for 6GB RAM, 64GB storage variant.
Redmi Note 5—India’s all-rounder
Redmi Note 5 fills the shoes of its predecessor Redmi Note 4, and more. Designed with the same 18:9 FHD+ display as Redmi Note 5 Pro, it features an SoC with a proven track record, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625.
With an improved 12MP rear camera (with large 1.25μm pixels), up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, Redmi Note 5 improves upon the bestselling Redmi Note 4 in every aspect. Redmi Note 5 will still feature the great battery life and reliability its predecessor was known for, while featuring upgrades in all other aspects.
Like Redmi Note 5 Pro, it will feature an LED Selfie-light for the perfect selfie even in challenging lighting conditions.
