Xiaomi has launched the successor to 2016’s Redmi 4A, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A in China. Two selling points of the new Redmi 5A according Xiaomi are its ‘8-Day battery life’ and the fact that it weighs only 137 grams.

The Redmi 5A isn’t a huge upgrade over its predecessor, the Redmi 4A. The Redmi 5A has a 5 inch LCD display with a 1280 x 720 px resolution. Just like the Redmi 4A, the new smartphone is also powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset, quad-core CPU clocked at 1.4GHz, along with 2GB of RAM. There’s only one storage model announced at the time of its launch but, more storage and RAM variants are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. The current model has 16GB of onboard storage which can be expanded up to 128GB via microSD card. The dual-SIM Redmi 5A is powered by a 3000 mAh battery which seems to be a downgrade when compared to the Redmi 4A which packs a 3120 mAh battery. The device will run Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box with Xiaomi’s custom MIUI 9 skin on top.

The Redmi 5A has a 13MP rear camera with an f/2.2 aperture, burst mode, panorama mode, HDR mode, and more. To the front is a 5MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture. The smartphone records 1920 x 1080 px videos.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A is priced at CNY 599 (Rs. 6000 approx.), and will be available for pre-orders starting Monday in China. It will be available via the company’s official site as well as other e-commerce websites in China. There is no official word on the smartphone’s availability in other markets including India as of now.
