Xiaomi‘s authorized distributors Vatsal Impex has unveiled the new Redmi 5 Plus in Nepal. The move now bolsters the company’s mid-range lineup mostly due to the bezel-less display the phone packs.
Built with metal, the phone has a nice 5.99-inch 18:9 IPS LCD display which results in a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. Inside sits Xiaomi’s beloved Snapdragon 625 chipset with 3 gigs of RAM and 32GB of ROM; it’s expandable via microSD card. The processor is powerful enough and does justice to the exterior of the phone.
While companies have been hogging towards the dual-camera hype, Xiaomi sits there quietly without igniting the attention. And that’s no different with the Redmi 5 Plus. The phone has a single 12MP sensor at the back with f/2.2 aperture, 1.25 μm pixel size, PDAF, and dual-LED dual-tone flash. The front has an average 5MP camera capable of capturing videos at 1080p.
Out of the box, the phone boots on Android 7.1.2 Nougat with a planned upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo in near future, whilst the MIUI 9 is there from Xiaomi’s side. The 4,000mAh battery is capable of providing the juice that the phone needs for up to credible time.
