Xiaomi Redmi 5 specifications, features

To recall, the Redmi 5 features a 5.7-inch HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 SoC.

For optics, the phone is equipped with a 12-megapixel rear camera, along with a 5-megapixel camera up front. On the software front, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 runs Android 7.1 Nougat with MIUI 9 layered above. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.2, a hybrid dual SIM/microSD slot, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, microUSB port, and 3.5mm headphone jack. It is fueled by a 3,300mAh battery.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 was launched last year in December alongside the Redmi 5 Plus. However, it had been exclusive to the Chinese market. Recent reports claim that the successor to the Redmi 4 could soon find its way into other markets of the world in the second half of February.

Meanwhile, the China-based smartphone maker has dethroned long-time king Samsung in the Indian market as the top smartphone brand. Xiaomi had a market share of 25 percent at the end of Q4 2017, according to research firm Canalys. Samsung, on the other hand, witnessed a marginal decline in market share from 24 percent at the Q4 2016 to 23 percent at the end of Q4 2017, ending its six-year-long dominance in the market.
