Share

Xiaomi's very first TV for India - Mi TV 4, is also the world's thinnest LED TV. The news of the launch was earlier announced on Xiaomi's website where they set up a page especially for the smartphone from which interested buyers and smartphone fanatics can watch the LIVE streaming of the event. While the Redmi Note 5 is the same Redmi 5 Plus launched in China, the Redmi Note 5 Pro is a completely new device. At this point the same is not available but the company says face detection will be offered over OTA by end of March. Older devices like the Redmi 2, Redmi 2 Prime, Mi 4i, Xiaomi 2, Redmi 2s, and Redmi Note 4G will end their major update cycles with the current MIUI 9. Available in Lake Blue, Rose Gold, Gold, or Black. The device will be available from February 22 onwards for the base variant.

Both the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro pack 4,000mAh batteries, a slight step down from the 4,100mAh battery in the Redmi Note 4. Like the Redmi Note 5, it will go on sale soon via all of Xiaomi's offline retail partners. That said, it is no different from Redmi Note 4 in terms of specifications and this brings disappointment.

Connectivity options on the Xiaomi Mi TV 4 55-inch model include three HDMI 2.0 ports, two USB (one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0) ports, an Ethernet port, an S/PDIF port, dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and Bluetooth 4.0.

The new smartphone features a 5.99-inch FHD+ (2160x1080) display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, 2.5D curved Glass and Corning Gorilla Glass for protection. It is powered by a 2GHz Octa Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Processor with 3GB/4GB RAM. It also sports the dual rear-camera system (12MP+5MP) and a 20MP selfie shooter. The secondary sensor is mainly for the depth detection while the primary sensor takes the images. It also comes paired with 4GB and 6GB of storage depending on the price you're willing to pay and a flat 64GB of storage. A 4000mAH battery might power the device.

Is the Redmi Note 5 and Note 5 Pro worth the upgrade? The smartphone's high-end model is priced at Rs 16,999.

At first glance, the Redmi Note 5 Pro can easily be associated with 2017's superstar gadget - the iPhone X. There's no other way to put it - the Redmi Note 5 Pro borrows the iPhone X's camera module blatantly.
