Before the presentation of the new generation of budget-minded Xiaomi (the younger Redmi 5A does not count) there are few days left, but the company has already launched with fun promos and official images of Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus.
The design of the devices did not become a discovery - before that Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus passed the certification of the TENAA regulator, which regularly provides us with information about new devices. Actually, the characteristics of smartphones are also known. The younger model will receive an elongated 5.7-inch HD + display (1440x720 pixels) and an eight-core Snapdragon 450 processor with a frequency of 1.8 GHz. Expect versions with 2/3/4 GB of RAM and 16/32/64 GB of internal memory. The main camera is 12-megapixel, and the front-end module is 5 megapixel. It only upsets the battery capacity to 3300 mAh.
Senior Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus is equipped with 5.99-inch display with a resolution of 2160x1080 pixels (18: 9) and a more powerful Snapdragon 625 chipset (although the 450th is almost in no way inferior to it). The minimum configuration is 3/32 GB, there will also be a variant with 4 GB of RAM and a 64 GB drive. Both models received a metal back panel with plastic inserts from the top and bottom. You can distinguish by the shape of the flash - in the Plus version it is double.
According to preliminary data, in China the price of Xiaomi Redmi 5 can start from $ 106 (2/16 GB), and Redmi 5 Plus will cost at least $ 151. Confirm whether these rumors - we will know already on December 7 at the official announcement. On the same day, the premiere of Huawei Nova 2s with a screen of 18: 9 will be held. This is a higher-level model, but Honor 7X is much closer in price to the novelties (although still more expensive).
