Good news for Xiaomi fans.
On December 12 with price starting at ¥799 the Redmi 5 Plus and Xiaomi Redmi 5 will hit stores first in China. The question is when the new devices reach the country. Xiaomi finally pulled the wraps off the new Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus in Beijing and it came to life after weeks of teasing.
Both the models are released with same design language and flaunt sturdy metallic shell having vivid colour options- gold, black, rose gold and light blue. The front-panel that boasts FullView screen having 18:9 aspect ratio is the key aspect of the new Xiaomi devices.The Redmi 5 series, even though come at affordable prices, managed to have display screen ratio at industry standards. This is an interesting development. Technology is a very good thing and Xiaomi is a part of it.
“The Redmi 5 Plus comes with a 5.99-inch full HD+ display, 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 octa-core, 3GB/4GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage, 4000mAh battery, 12MP camera with f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP front snapper with dedicated LED flash.”
On the other hand, the generic Redmi 5 sports a tad smaller 5.7-inch HD+ screen and houses 2GB/3GB RAM, 16GB/32GB storage and a 3,300mAh cell. These features are incredible. It also houses almost same camera hardware as seen in the Plus version and maybe more we will have. The difference is that the latter has just single-tone LED flash on the black, whereas the former has dual-tone flash support. But these make the device interesting and attractive.

When is Xiaomi Redmi 5, Redmi 5 Plus India launch?
There is no official word on when Xiaomi will release the Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus in India, but going by the release pattern, the company will wait a month or two to roll out the new devices.
It has to be reported that the Redmi 5A was launched in India only a week ago and it would be unwise for the company to release new Redmi 5 series in such quick successions or else risk the latter cannibalising the former.
So, Xiaomi fans can expect the Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus in late January or early February.
