Redmi 5 and 5 Plus

Xiaomi is bringing the 18:9 aspect ratio to the budget section and as expected, that’s again a masterstroke by the Chinese manufacturer! The Redmi 5 and 5 Plus are releasing in China tomorrow and while they have been subjected to major leaks and what not, their price did not surface for long. However, a new leak has hinted on their cost and now we are sure of their major success as well!

AliExpress, a retailer, has listed the phones on its website with their prices. Despite the fact that this seller’s connection with Xiaomi isn’t verified, the retailer has placed Redmi 5 (16GB ROM) at INR 13,000/- ($199.99) and the Redmi 5 Plus (32GB ROM) is listed to cost INR Rs 16,000 ($249.99).

Redmi 5A was launched in India recently and it is selling for JUST Rs. 4,999/- on Flipkart Big Shopping Days Sale! 

The listing has mentioned that the phones are still at a pre-sale stage and hence, we should take these specs with a grain of salt. The 18:9 aspect ratio is the hottest trend in town right now since it implies a gorgeous bezel-less design for a smartphone. Till now, only the premium phones were bezel-less and understanding the need of the smartphone market, Xiaomi has planned to release Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus.
