Xiaomi Redmi 5 Launched in India, Prices Start at Rs 7999

But with the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 - and evidently now with the Xiaomi Mi 5 - which has an empty partition labeled "CUST", third party developers have now created a way to bring Project Treble to these phones.

The highlight of the Redmi 5 is the 18:9 display on the front.

When and where to watch the Redmi 5 launch live stream?

Redmi India in its tweets revealing specs, price and launch details of the phone has as well announced for users a chance to win a "Compact Powerhouse" if retweeted. The middle variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage is priced at Rs. 8,999. However, the company later added the 4GB RAM and 64GB storage variant. For photography, this phone is mounted with 12MP rear camera with large 1.25um pixels, LED Flash, f/2.2 aperture, and 5MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture and LED Selfie-light for brighter selfies.

As far as the Xiaomi Redmi 5 is concerned, the smartphone is similar to the Redmi 5 which was launched in China at the end of previous year by Xiaomi.

The device is powered by a 3300mAh battery that Xiaomi claims can last a whole day. Sadly, it doesn't support fast charging. The Redmi Note 5 is, in fact, the Redmi 5 Plus re-branded for the Indian market.

The launch of Redmi 5 will be an online event which is scheduled at 3 PM today. For the Redmi 5, the top and bottom bezels have been reduced.

The display seems sharper and better on the Redmi Note 5, thanks to the Full HD+ resolution, i.e. 1080 x 2160 pixels giving it about 403 PPI of pixel density.

Xiaomi's two phones every year include one from the Redmi series and one from the Redmi Note series.

Quite a few things have changed the Redmi 5 and Redmi 4. Emphasis lies on thermal efficiency - and improved battery life - as well as all-round performance. There's 2.5D curved glass on the front and on-screen keys for navigation. However, the Redmi 5 comes in different colour options- Black, Gold, Lake Blue and Rose Gold. Buyers will get a free ultra-slim cover with the smartphone. In terms of connectivity, the smartphone supports 4G, VoLTE, dual-SIM, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Now, the smartphone comes in India with some upgrades.
