Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A unveiled, priced at just 899 Yuan ($135)


Xiaomi kept its promise and a couple of minutes ago unveiled the Redmi Note 5A model, aimed at the budget/mid-range segment of the market. The newest member of the Redmi Note family comes with an impressive design and uses the same three-staged metal design most Redmi series models boast, along with a symmetrical border layout at the rear. It weighs 153 grams and its dimensions are just 153 x 76.2 x 7.7 mm.

The device relies on the 2.5D design on its glass to offer improved durability, and comes in 3 color variations: Champagne gold, Rose gold and Platinum silver. Recent rumors were true regarding the technical specs of the Redmi Note 5A model so we already know that it comes with a Snapdragon 435 SoC, packs a 5,5 inch HD display, runs on Android 7.1.1 and comes with MIUI 9 preinstalled, so you won’t have to wait for an update. 

The Redmi Note 5A model has 4G/LTE support, dual SIM compatibility and packs a microSD slot for memory cards up to 128GB in storage size.

One of its most impressive (according to Xiaomi) features is its 16MP selfie camera, featuring 36 levels of beauty in the beauty mode and a front LED flash. There’s also a 13MP main camera on its back along with another flash light.

The device will be available starting tomorrow (August 22) in 2 versions:

  • Lite version (2GB+16GB) – 699 Yuan (€89)
  • Standard Version (3GB+32GB) – 899 Yuan (114€)
  • Higher Version (4GB+64GB) – 1199 Yuan (€152)
