Xiaomi quietly launches Redmi 5 variant with 4GB of RAM


Seems that Xiaomi chooses today as a special day for making some amends in the fifth generation of Redmi phones. Both smartphones were launched in December, but while the Redmi 5 Plus was a higher variant, the Redmi 5 brought more modest specs, being only available with either 2GB RAM + 16GB Storage or 3GB RAM + 32GB Storage.

Perhaps, due to market demand, Xiaomi has today quietly released a third variant of the Redmi 5 packing 4GB of RAM and 32GB of Storage. The newest version of the smartphone is already available for purchase in the Xiaomi Chinese Online Store.

The new 4GB RAM variant will cost a little more than the 3GB RAM variant, specifically $35 more (200 Yuan). The consumers that decides to pay the $173 ($1,099 Yuan) Price tag will have a Redmi 5 with extended multi-tasking capabilities.

This new variant arrives in Gold, Black, and Blue variants. Apart from the RAM amount, all the specifications remain the same. The Redmi 5 counts with the power efficient Snapdragon 450 Chipset, placed beneath a 5.7-inch 1440x720p 18:9 display. Camera-wise the handset counts with a single 12MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing snapper.

Running all those specs, the handsets counts with a 3,300mAh battery, along MIUI 9.1 placet atop Nougat 7.1.2. Currently the new variant of the smartphone is only available through Xiaomi’s official website, however, it may go worldwide.

        Ye, I just bought a 5+ yesterday. It been so long that USB C is out that I even didn’t think to look for it before buying. I open the box, setup the phone, try to plug it on my charger which is already on the plug… to realize it doesn’t fit. What the fuck. I have a Mi 4C… 4C like, two year old, and it has USBC… what the hell Xiaomi. 1299rmb and no USB C

      meaning that Xiaomi are MORONS … this was their chance to get ahead of every other brand with a good feature set on RN5+, instead they just put crappy specs of $250

      meizu E3 beats this phone anytime !
