Today, Xiaomi officially announced in Indonesia that its new smartphone, Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A, is now available in Indonesia and it is exclusive to the online Jingdong Mall as well as the Xiaomi Mi Stores in the country.
The availability of this smartphone in Indonesia is probably orchestrated by the fact that some Indonesian companies were involved in the production of the Redmi Note 5A. Recall that earlier this year, Xiaomi partnered with local Indonesian companies such as PT Erajaya Swasembada Tbk, PT Sat Nusapersada Tbk, and TSM Technologies to complete the local production of this smartphone. Over 500 local workers were involved in the assembling of this smartphone and up to 500, 000 units were produced.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A is a budget smartphone which has a brushed metallic finish and weighs only 150 grams. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 Quad-core 64-bit processor and it is equipped with a 5.5-inch 720p HD display (Corning Gorilla Glass). It has a dedicated micro SD card, dual nano-SIM, and a microSD slot. In the camera department, this smartphone comes with a 13MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and the lights of this phone are kept on by an average 3080 mAh battery.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A is currently priced at 1499000 Indonesian rupiahs which translate to about $111 dollars.
