Xiaomi has finally launched the Redmi Note 5 and the Redmi Note 5 Pro at an event in India. The smartphones come as successors to Xiaomi's top-selling smartphone in India, the Redmi Note 4. It is the first Redmi phone to feature 18:9 display and dual rear cameras. The phone has a single 12MP camera sensor on the back, the one that is also present on the Redmi Note 5 Pro, along with a 5MP front camera. As far as price is concerned, Redmi Note 5 price in India may start from roughly around Rs 15,400), NDTV Gadgets reported. The high-end model has 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage, making it the first Xiaomi smartphone in India with this RAM capacity.

At the launch event of Redmi Note 5, Xiaomi said that the front camera of the phone is better still than rear cameras. But turn it upside down and you'll notice a typical Xiaomi design with the rear camera sensor, flash module, and fingerprint sensor perpendicular to the phone's plastic top and bottom caps. More on that later. The battery on board is expected to be 4000 mAh and it will likely be powered by the latest Android Oreo with MIUI 9 on top.

Meanwhile, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is packed with a 4000mAh full-day battery, Gorilla Glass, 380V charger, same camera setup, LED selfie light, 5.99-inch screen, 18:9 display.

The company retained the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC that was used by the Redmi Note 4 on the Redmi Note 5 as well. It comes in two variants - 3GB/32 GB and 4GB/64 GB - in terms of storage space.

The Redmi Note 5 Pro has been priced at Rs. 13,999 for the base 4GB RAM variant and the 6GB RAM variant will be available for Rs. 16,999.

The Redmi Note 5 camera will include a 12-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture, 1.25-micron pixel size, PDAF, and an LED flash module. The company also said the TV sports Dolby DTS Cinema Audio with two 8W duct inverted speakers. For the consumers, who are not a fan of wall-hung televisions, the Mi TV 4 is bundled with an aluminum stand. This Mi TV is going up for the exclusive sale on Flipkart and Mi Home store on next week.
