Xiaomi divides its offer of smartphones into two large families: the Mi, where it places the best smartphones, and the Redmi, the range where we can find smartphones valid for the vast majority of users at especially attractive prices. And today was the day marked on the calendar to introduce us to a new member of the range Redmi Note, 5A.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A is a handset specially designed for those who are looking for a large screen mobile with 5.5 inches, but have a tight budget, although it comes in three variants, with the top two bearing the surname Prime, which offer different memories and some added and improved more, which we invite you to know in depth below.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A, big inch at low price
Before making the jump in its usual range Redmi Note, we should soon know the Redmi Note 5, Xiaomi has decided to introduce in this range a terminal of more contained specifications. For example, the resolution of the screen stays in 720 x 1080 pixels, when all the versions of Redmi Note 4 counted on FullHD. This leaves us with a pixel depth of 267 per inch, a small figure.
The power is put by the processor for the entry-level Qualcomm Snapdragon 425, quad-core 1.4 GHz, with an Adreno 308 GPU. That heart, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, should be enough for basic tasks and even to switch between applications without too many problems, although in the graphical section we cannot wait for a machine.
The basic version of the Redmi Note 5A has a configuration very similar to other input range, at a contained price. The configuration of the cameras is also very common among smartphones of the input range, with 13 megapixels in the rear, with PDAF and f / 2.2 aperture, and five megapixels in the front, with f / 2.0 aperture. On the software side we find Android 7.1.1 under the layer MIUI 9. The battery, of 3,080 mAh, seems on paper enough to endure a demanding day running.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Prime, one step ahead
The version we talked about is quite a low range, but it is not alone. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Prime will be available for the most demanding, with a number of improvements that do not stay in new memory configurations (32 + 3 GB and 64 + 4 GB) only. From the outset, the processor becomes a Snapdragon 435, an octa-core 1.4 GHz that ensures more power and better graphics performance, thanks to the Adreno 505 GPU.
The Prime version not only improves in power, also incorporates fingerprint reader and a front camera of 16 MP with LED flash.
The other major differences are the front camera, which passes to an Omnivision 16-megapixel sensor and a 76.4-degree wide-angle lens, accompanied by an LED flash, and the presence of a fingerprint reader. The remaining details, both on the connectivity side, as the main camera, the screen (which only adds the 2.5D finish) or the battery are kept the same as in the Redmi Note 5A.
