Xiaomi RedMi 5 Handsets Launch THIS THURSDAY (And They Make The OnePlus 5T Look Expensive)

Xiaomi will unveil its new RedMi 5 lineup of handsets on Thursday, so what are we able to be expecting?

Xiaomi will unveil its logo new RedMi 5 handsets this Thursday (December 7) and, forward of the development, Donovan Sung, Government for Xiaomi, has shared a couple of selection snaps of the brand new telephones on Twitter.

Having a look on the renders, we will see that the RedMi 5 telephones – the lineup will come with: the RedMi 5 and RedMi 5 Plus – will characteristic an 18:9 facet ratio, are available in no less than 3 colors, and have a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Earlier leaks have claimed the handsets would characteristic the next specifications, in line with Phandroid: “Snapdragon 625 SoC, 3GB of RAM and 16GB or 32GB of garage for the RedMi 5. The RedMi 5 Plus will probably be powered the Snapdragon 630 SoC and 64GB of expandable garage.”

How a lot will those new RedMi 5 telephones value? Now not a lot in any respect; you’re having a look at $126 for the usual style and $200 for the RedMi 5 Plus – so 1/5 the price of the iPhone X and about 60% not up to the OnePlus 5T.

The handiest caveat, on the other hand, is that those telephones is not going to get “authentic” launches in the United Kingdom and US. They will handiest be to be had in Xiaomi’s local China, despite the fact that punters will have the ability to pick them up via retailers like GearBest in the US and UK.

Xiaomi telephones have turn out to be truly standard within the western global all the way through the previous 5 years, because of their aggregate of top of the range specifications and design and ULTRA-low pricing. I imply, those telephones even make the OnePlus 5T appear pricey.

The handsets will release on December 7, by means of a show off in China, so we predict a liberate date to apply very in a while thereafter.

Now, all we'd like is for Xiaomi to start out retailing its handsets in the USA and UK correctly.
