Reliance Jio is offering Rs 1000 cashback on Xiaomi Redmi 5A

The Redmi 5A is not an upgrade to the other budget smartphones by Xiaomi released this year, but a well-rounded budget smartphone at the moment that would expectedly sell quite well.

Recently, Xiaomi has been teasing its fans in India with campaign "Desh Ka Smartphone" (smartphone of the country). It's an affordable package that offers decent smartphone experience without too many compromises. Redmi 5A is a demonstration of next step by Xiaomi to provide updated and next-generation technology to the users while keeping the overall cost as low as possible to allow it to be acquired by everyone. Now Xiaomi is planning to launch its two more high-end smartphones next month. The memory can be expanded up to 128GB with microSD.

The Redmi 5A runs MIUI 9 which is based on Android 7.1 Nougat.

Redmi 5A 2GB RAM variant comes with a price tag of Rs. 4999 for the first five million units variant.

We said yesterday the Xiaomi Redmi 5 will have a 5.7-inch screen, HD+ 1440 x 720 pixel resolution, Snapdragon 625 chipset, 64GB onboard storage, 4GB RAM, 5MP selfie shooter, a 12MP rear camera, and a 3300mAh battery. It also has a 5 megapixels front camera with f/2.0 aperture. Moreover, the phone will come in three storage option: 2 GB RAM/16 GB storage, 3 GB RAM/32 GB storage, and 4 GB RAM/64 GB storage.

There is no information about the plan extending to other phones, but as far as the Redmi 5A users are concerned, Jio has its ₹199 plan and no other competitor is offering such benefits as of now.

Despite having smaller battery than its predecessor, Redmi 5A still offers upto 8-days of stand-by battery life in one charge. Xiaomi is also expected to launch Redmi 5 Plus on 7 December. The Redmi 4A came with a 3,120mAh battery, while this year's model only offers a 3,000mAh one. Both the devices will be up for sale exclusively from Flipkart. It will feature Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) with an LED flash. Interestingly, it also features an IR blaster which is a kind of surprising given its price.
