Xiaomi is gearing up to launch the Desh ka Smartphone in India on November 30. As of now, there is not much information about the handset. A teaser on the Twitter handle of Redmi India disclosed last week that the device would come with a long-lasting battery. Another hint is the tagline, which says Desh ka Smartphone clearly revealing that the device will be a cost-effective offering.

According to speculations the Redmi 5A is most likely to be launched on November 30, 2017. A major factor suggesting this probability is the use of Redmi India’s handle to tweet about the phone. This clearly reveals that the handset will be a Redmi brand. Secondly, the device will cost CNY 599 or approximately Rs.5,800, which also indicates that the phone could be the Redmi 5A.

Another factor suggesting this is the upcoming smartphone’s long-lasting battery. The device will come with a battery that can last up to eight days and will run on MIUI 9 out-of-the-box, claims Xiaomi. Earlier this month, the company had launched its new selfie-phone series, the Xiaomi Redmi Y.
