Xiaomi Redmi 5A arrives Rose Gold colour variant sale

The Rose Gold variant, the company said, will be available in 2GB and 3GB RAM options, with the former being priced at ₹4,999 and the latter at ₹6,999.


The all new Rose Gold colour variant of the “Desh Ka Smartphone,” Xiaomi Redmi 5A, goes on sale from 12 PM IST in India today. This new colour option debuts in India two months after the Gold and Dark Grey colour variants were launched. Available at a starting price of ₹4,999, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A Rose Gold variant will be on sale exclusively via Mi.com and Flipkart from February 1.

The Chinese electronics major might have chosen this opportune moment to launch this new colour option, given that it can target the Valentine’s Day buyers through this. Both the colour and the price bracket make it quite an attractive budget smartphone option, especially if you are planning to gift it.

Xiaomi India teased the Indian consumer on January 31 through a tweet that said, “I’m beautiful. I’m powerful. I’m everyone’s choice. Guess who am I? Watch this space tomorrow.”

 

Same Same, But Different?

The Rose Gold variant, the company said, will be available in 2GB and 3GB RAM options, with the former being priced at ₹4,999 and the latter at ₹6,999. And, if you are looking for the phone offline, you can try the Mi Home and Big Bazaar stores.

Apart from the new colour option, the smartphone is really the same as the Redmi 5A launched in late November 2017. It comes with a 5-inch HD display, offering resolution of 720×1280 pixels. This dual-SIM (Nano) device is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, clocked at 1.4GHz.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5A Rose Gold, like its other colour counterparts, runs on the Android Nougat-based MIUI 9, with a 13 MP real camera, with LED flash, aperture of f/2.2 and PDAF, and a 5 MP selfie camera with aperture of f/2.0.

Storage options include 16GB and 32GB internal storage, expandable to 128GB with a microSD card. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS/ A-GPS, Bluetooth v.4.1, Micro-USB, Infrared and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device has a whopping 3000mAh battery that offers up to 8 days of standby and 7 hours of video playback with a single charge.
