The company retained the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC that was used by the Redmi Note 4 on the Redmi Note 5 as well. The Redmi Note 5 smartphone- a successor to the popular Redmi Note 4 is expected to be launched in India at 12 noon.
Besides these new phones, the company finally launched the Mi LED TV 4 which is its first TV in India. The 20MP selfie camera also relies on AI power to take bokeh portraits, just like the Google Pixel 2 - this gives the Redmi Note 5 Pro a huge advantage over its rivals.
In India, the Note 5's price ranges from 9,999 Indian rupees (P8,131.22)* for the base version to 11,999 rupees (P9757.62) for the version packing 4GB version and 64GB of storage.
The biggest attraction of the device is the 18:9 aspect ratio display and the dual camera setup on the rear.
The Mi TV 4 will likely be launched along side the Redmi Note 5 as well.
Under the hood, the Mi LED Smart TV is powered by a 64-bit Amlogic L962 chipset with four 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 cores along with 2GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. After signing in Mi users will receive a notification prior to the start of Redmi Note 5 Live stream. People believe that it would carry the same design of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 or Redmi 5 Plus. It features a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It comes in two variants - 3GB/32 GB and 4GB/64 GB - in terms of storage space. Allegedly, the company spent a long time customising the interface of the TV to make it truly smart.
