Xiaomi started 2018 with two great budget smartphones, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro. While the Redmi Note 5 is essentially the Redmi 5 Plus that was launched in China, many expected the Redmi 5 to never hit the Indian shores. That, however, changed on the 14th of March when Xiaomi held a live stream event and launched the Redmi 5 in India.
At a starting price of Rs 7999, the Redmi 5 is a peculiar device for the India market. That doesn’t mean that it won’t sell because Xiaomi appears to have cracked the code for India. With three variants launched, there are a few options to consider. But, the base variant is expected to be the popular choice [...]

The device also has a similar build quality to the HTC U11, something that [...]

Honor will officially launch the Honor 9 Lite in India on the 17th of January. While there are no details about the price yet, we speculate that the Honor 9 Lite could be a slightly lower priced Honor 7X alternative in India. In China, where the smartphone was first launched, it starts at a price of CNY 1199 (Rs. 11600 approx.) for the base variant.
