Xiaomi announces its budget Redmi 5A starting at Rs 4999

After their runaway-hit Redmi Note 4, the Redmi 4 and Redmi 4A were responsible for gathering moolah for the company.

After teasing the device for more than a week Xiaomi has finally pulled its wraps from the Redmi 5A. And, indeed, it is a true budget phone, as its price tag is ₹4,999, which translates into around $77.

As for the cameras, every budget smartphone manages to perform average and the Redmi 5A seems to be no exception. Still, there are few minor upgrades to Xiaomi's latest offering.

Surprisingly enough, for this lowe price, users will actually get a decent device.

While launching the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, Manu Kumar Jain, Xiaomi vice president added that all units sold here will be made in India.

The Redmi 5A features a 5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720p and 296ppi pixel density. There is also a speaker grill on the back of the handset, on the bottom of the back cover. It comes with an all-plastic body - like the Redmi 4A - with a smooth metallic finish on the back and will be available in as many as three colours:Dark Grey, Gold and Rose Gold.

Xiaomi's Redmi 4A was launched for similar prices of Rs 5,999 and Rs 6,999.

Like the Redmi 4A, the Redmi 5A is powered by the quad-core Snapdragon 425 chipset.

When it comes to the cameras, the Redmi 5A utilises a 13MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture and PDAF for the rear as well as a 5MP selfie sensor for the front. The battery has shrunk a little bit. Under the hood, it has a 3000mAh battery which provides the power. On the software side of things, the Redmi 5A runs MIUI 9 out of the box. Now just a week ahead of the launch, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 has appeared on TENAA with the model number "MDE1". Unlike previous phones, this time the Xiaomi phone comes with a dedicated microSD card slot.

The caveat here is that the ₹4,999 pricing is limited to the fist five million units. Secondly, the 3GB RAM/32GB storage version of the Redmi 5A is an India-exclusive since in China only one 2GB RAM/16GB variant is available. It will sell for ₹6,999. The Redmi 5A will be available from December 7 across Flipkart, Mi.com, and Mi Home stores, followed by offline retailers including Mi Preferred Partners in the subsequent weeks.
