Xiaomi conquers any market it enters. We know, this company hasn’t gone out of China for a long time. But a couple of years ago it decided to enlarge its geographies and entered the Indian, Malaysian, Taiwanese, and a few markets as well. We understand customers in these markets mainly have low incomes and Xiaomi should launch basically low-end and mid-range devices. But even if so, it’s a smart move to make the brand recognizable. The same happened for the Indian market. Initially, Xiaomi was launching only cost-effective models. But now you can find many top-notch smartphones with this brand available in India. Anyway, the Taiwanese market is not so attractive to Xiaomi yet. That’s why it is launching the latest but wallet-friendly models for this region. Earlier, it’s been announced the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and its sibling, the Redmi 5 Plus will hit the Taiwanese market on January 25. Everything went according to plans, and today this manufacturer launched the mentioned phones.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5 comes with a 5.7-inch full-screen that provides a resolution of 720×1440 pixels. It is packed with a Snapdragon 450 chip, 2+16GB and 3+32GB of memory combination, 3300mAh battery, 12MP rear camera, and a 5MP front shooter. As for its sibling, the Redmi 5 Plus looks more attractive due to a 5.99-inch full-screen with a Full HD+ resolution, Snapdragon 625 chip, 3+32GB/4+64GB memory combination, 4000mAh battery, and many more.
What’s surprising, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus are priced almost identically to the Chinese market. The Redmi 5 with a 3+32GB option is available at 3999 NT (about 875 yuan), while it was announced in China with a price tag of 899 yuan. As for the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus, it is available for 5999 NT (about 1305 yuan). In China, it’s sold for 1299 yuan. At last, the phones will ship on January 30.
