Vatsal Impex Pvt. Ltd, the official distributor of Xiaomi products in Nepal, has launched their latest budget smartphone, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A. The phone is the successor of last years best budget smartphone, the Redmi 4A. With this phone, Mi Nepal has filled the void that has been haunting the budget line up for quite some time. Let’s take a quick look at the phone and see what it has to offer for an amazing price of Rs 13,999.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A packs a 5.0-inch HD (720 x 1280 ) IPS display with a pixel density of 296PPI. Encasing the internals of the phone is a sturdy plastic build. Under the hood, the phone comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor along with the Adreno 308 GPU. The processor is backed by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The memory can be further expanded via a micro-sd card up to 256GB. The phone also supports dual-sim cards and is 4G capable.
In the camera department, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A packs a f/2.2 13MP rear camera accompanied by an LED flash. The phone also has a f/2.0 5MP front camera for all your social media ready selfies. Sadly, the phone this time too doesn’t come with a fingerprint scanner. We would have loved to see the biometric option at this price point in 2018. Nonetheless, the phone comes with other sensors like an accelerometer, a proximity sensor, and a digital compass. Moving on, at the software front, the phone runs MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1.2 Nougat. And finally powering this device all up is a 3000mAh non-user removable battery.
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A is an amazing budget smartphone! We absolutely loved its predecessor, the Redmi 4A and now the same goes for the successor. The phone is unbeatable for the specs and value it offers. For anyone looking for a great budget smartphone, the Redmi 5A is your best option. You can now buy the phone across the nation in grey and gold color from any official Xiaomi retail store/showroom. You can also order it online via Mi Nepal’s very own website.
