Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A 4G Phablet Global Version

And after a year of success in the Redmi family by the Xiaomi Redmi 4A and its derivatives, Xiaomi is renewed and seeks to distinguish itself again by renewing a range that is already mythical for those who are looking for a good, nice and cheap smartphone. Indeed, we are talking about the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, a terminal that comes to all in the entry range of smartphones with which you will have much for very little.

Metal body, featherweight – The Redmi 5A will continue with the aesthetics seen so far in the entry range of Xiaomi and will come manufactured with a unibody metal body, although this time have taken advantage to slightly lower the frames of the front to give a superior appearance and be more compact if it fits. The rear end will achieve a much flatter finish for a much more refined and updated look. Of course, now it is much lighter than its predecessor, as it drops down to 137 grams in weight, resulting in greater comfort for those who like the hours and hours in the networks. The new Xiaomi phone is available in Gray, with the back in black, gold and pink, these two with the front in white.

A good engine for the Xiaomi input range – Due to the success of the alliance between IM and Qualcomm this new smartphone reflects that mutual trust between both companies, which is why Xiaomi installed SnapDragon 425 in their new Redmi. It is a quad-core processor based on the ARM Cortex A-53 that will work at 1.4GHz speed. This processor will provide the power necessary for day to day, making it one of the best processors of Qualcomm that have proven very efficient when working in the low range. On the other hand this processor will come from the hand of the graphical Qualcomm Adreno 308 adding thus a plus of fluency in the videos and games.

As for your RAM memory we will have a 2GB drive, something that is already basic and necessary to move all the app’s that we use already in our day to day of the 21st century. As internal memory has a capacity of 16GB in total but to which we can add a memory card up to 128GB, so for lack of space we do not have to worry.

13 megapixel camera – If you are one of those who likes to photograph everything that is or just want some good family photos the new Xiaomi Redmi 5A is a phone that will be worth. We have a 13 megapixel full resolution camera with a f/2.2 focal aperture, allowing a good balance between angle and brightness. The camera software has pre-designed filters that we can use, as well as panoramic photo, burst mode and facial recognition. You must know that your Redmi 5A is capable of making videos in Full HD quality at 30 frames per second, so your vacation will be on your mobile as if it were yesterday. On the front we have a 5 megapixel selfie camera that is more than worthy for such a cheap terminal.

FullHD screen so you do not miss anything – Attentive to its panel, as it has a 5-inch screen, as usual Xiaomi always presents several models for us to find the one that suits our tastes. Although the 5-inch size will always be the ideal, most comfortable to handle with one hand, it will be perfect for users of smaller hands looking for comfort. You’ll enjoy a HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels so you can see your favorite content as if you were there and have a more immersive feel. The crystal as usual will finish in a 2.5D bevel perfect for fusing with its new and brand new design.

Android 7.0 Nougat, the latest Android – In your Xiaomi Redmi 5A you can enjoy the new operating system of Google, Android 7.0 Nougat thanks to MIUI 9, will allow you the first real multitasking with which you can work in different applications in the same window, everything to get the most out of your memory RAM and its fantastic features. You will also have a good battery of 3000mAh for you to use without remorse, because smartphones are to enjoy them and also your processor will achieve energy savings by being much more efficient and optimized.
