The Redmi Note 5 and 5A first surfaced online a month ago and we know that 5A will be cheaper than the Redmi Note 5A.
The regular Note 5 will reportedly start at CNY 1,200 / $175 / €155. And Note 5A will be cheaper than it.
Additional details have emerged and the 5A isn’t quite what we expected.We were expecting it to be powered by a Snapdragon 600 series processor. But, dropping down from the Snapdragon 630/660, the more affordable model will use Snapdragon 425 instead (an old, 28nm chip).
And it will have a comparably smaller battery, about 3,080mAh vs. 3,790mAh on the non-A regular Note 5 model. In short, expect less performance and a shorter battery life.
Take a look at Redmi Note 5A’s image:
We can see it is more sleeker then Previous one and has same metal build it retains almost everything from its predecessor and has microUSB slot. However we were thinking that this year’s Note devices by Xiaomi will feature a USB Type-C port. But it is not a big issue.
