Hence, the company is also expected to announce Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in the future.

The Plus is available in two models: A base model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for ¥ 999 ($150), and a 4GB of RAM with 64GB of storage priced at ¥ 1,299 ($196). With the launch of these phones, Xiaomi is looking forward to continue their dominance in this price range. Their major feature is that bezel-less 18:9 display but it differs on both the devices. According to the listing, Redmi 5 has been priced at $199 (approx Rs 12,800) for the Black and Gold color and $209 (approx Rs 13,500) for the pink and blue color.

On the camera front, Redmi 5 smartphone sports a 12-megapixel rear camera with LED Flash, 1.25μm pixel size, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with LED flash for selfies and video chats. Nevertheless, both devices do carry soft-light for their front camera. On the inside, it's powered by the Qualcomm 450 octa-core system-on-a-chip (SoC), which features two clusters of 4x Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.8GHz frequency coupled with Adreno 506 GPU. We have seen phones get smaller, then bigger and thinner, and now we get a look at what could be the next step in smartphones. It can be bought in either 2GB RAM + 16GB storage option or 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM variant.

Both the handsets carry a separate microSD card slot for storage expansion. Let's start with what specs these two smartphones share, both devices ship with Android 7.1.2 Nougat, with Xiaomi's MIUI 9 OS on top of it, while both come with a dual SIM setup as well. All of this is powered by a large 3300 mAh battery. Connectivity options on the Redmi 5 include 802.11b / g / n, 2.4G Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi Display, GPS, A-GPS, GLONASS, and Beidou positioning. These smartphones succeed last year's ultra-popular Redmi 4 and Redmi 4 Prime. It comes with a 5.99-inch display that has a Full HD+ resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels. Other than these, both the phones are quite similar.

We saw plenty of leaks, but now Xiaomi officially lifted the curtain for the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus at an event in China.

Just like the Redmi 5, the Redmi 5 Plus has a 12MP primary camera and a 5MP secondary camera with beautify 3.0 software.

They will both go marked down from December 12, and will soon go up for enlistments.
