Xiaomi Redmi 5A: Hands on and first impressions

Yesterday, Xiaomi had announced that the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus smartphones will launch on December 7, and now the company confirmed that the two phones will ship with MIUI 9 out of the box. The device will come with a 12-megapixel camera sensor at the back and a 5-megapixel front-facing snapper. MIUI 9 offers one of the more intuitive and functional UIs, and there are nifty utilities and tools that improve one's overall Android experience. It will arrive with the same cameras as the Redmi 5, and both devices are rumored to arrive with a 4,000mAh non-removable battery, though it's possible that they will sport a somewhat smaller battery on the inside. There's nothing exceptional about the camera as per the initial testing, just that it is better than most of the competition so a fair win for Xiaomi in the segment. Later on, the price of the phone will be equal to base variant Redmi 4A. But the company is offering the first 5 million units of 2GB/16GB Redmi 5A at Rs. 4999. The launch of this entry-level Xiaomi phone has been speculated for a while now and finally, it's here in India.

Price and Availability - Xiaomi has launched Redmi 5A at a price starting from Rs. 4,999 for 2GB variant and Rs. 6,999 for the 3GB version. You get what you pay for, right?
