Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A launches in China

Base variant of Redmi Note 5A

Xiaomi's latest Redmi Note 5A is its first smartphone to feature 16 MP front-facing camera with a selfie flash.

The device offers overall a great build quality with a descent screen and battery. It is not known when it will come to India, but its pricing has indicated that it will have to take on other handsets from Xiaomi like the Redmi Note 4 and Redmi 4 besides devices from other OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers).

The device comes in three storage/RAM option 2/3/4 GB RAM and 16/32/64 GB onboard storage with a dedicated SD card slot (Dedicated slot). It is also very affordable at the price it is being offered for.

In terms of camera, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A mounts a 13MP camera with LED flash, PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus), f/2.2 aperture, full HD video recording, touch-focus and HDR (High Dynamic Range), and a 16MP front-snapper with front-facing LED flash, f/2.0 aperture, full HD video recording, and 36 Beautify mode. It is worth noting that you can expand that storage via a microSD card, no matter what variant we're talking about.

Another most fascinating feature of the device is, the two high-end models (3GB RAM and 4GB RAM) support fingerprint scanner which stays at the back.

Kasich denied to CNN on Sunday that he is planning to challenge Trump, saying he hopes "for him to get it together". "We all are. She also renewed her criticism of Trump's handling of the racial violence in Charlottesville, Virginia.

IR blaster is included on all the Redmi Note 5A units as well, and a 3,080mAh battery comes as part of the package as well.

The brand new edition runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat with MIUI 9.

Keep in mind that since this is a low-end device, the performance will not always be the best and graphics intensive games may not run as smooth as lets say it runs on other mid-rangers. The "Low Version" Redmi Note 5A is just a bit thinner (almost not noticeable), and 3 grams lighter, as it weighs 150 grams, compared to the "High Version" devices which weigh 153 grams.

Xiaomi's new smartphone the Redmi Note 5A is scheduled to go on sale initially in the home market in China from August 22 on Mi.com and JD.com.
