We are already aware of the specs of this phone, so we will talk about it later in article but first let’s talk about the pricing of this device which is surprising because Xiaomi has decided to price the  device same as it had priced redmi 4 last year, though the base variant is priced Rs 1000 higher than last year which means the base variant can be purchased at rupees Rs 7999 and the higher end variant  (64GB Storage 4Gb RAM) can be purchased at Rs 10999/-

The phone has got 18 by 9 aspect ratio which is again something quite obvious in 2018 when all the Smartphone manufacturers are bringing smartphones with this aspect ratio

This new aspect ratio lets the manufacturers make their phones with bigger screen sizes. Which means Redmi 5 is actually now 5.7 inch instead of 5inch

The phone will be Amazon exclusive, and you will be able to purchase it in Flash sales on a weekly basis you can click here to go to Amazon to know about the flash sales and you can also buy it at both online and offline Mi Stores.

Xiaomi has reduced the battery to just 3300 minutes, 800mah then Redmi 4 but claims the Redmi 5 gives same battery backup than Redmi 4, thanks to the Snapdragon 450 built on 14nm FINFET Technology, which makes the device consume less power and also stays less warm. 

Putting in a smaller battery has also enabled Xiaomi to make this device 11% slimmer than Redmi 4.
