Due to a large-scale leak in Chinese social networks, the price of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 became known in early July. Then we learned that Xiaomi is preparing not even one, but at least two smartphones, each of which will receive several modifications with different volumes of operational and main memory.
In general, the layout is as follows:
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5
The smartphone Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is based on the recently announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset, which replaces the older Snapdragon 625. On the one hand, the ARM Cortex-A53 is slow enough, on the other hand, it has high energy efficiency and a “full mincemeat” of modern communication technologies.
- 3 GB of RAM + 32 GB of flash memory – 175 dollars / 155 euro
- 4 GB of RAM + 32 GB of flash memory – 205 dollars / 180 euro
- 4 GB of RAM + 64 GB of flash memory – 220 dollars / 195 euro
Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A
This “light” version of the novelty (see more details), which received the older mobile processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 (MSM8953), and instead of fast RAM LPDDR4 uses a relatively slow LPDDR3.
The expected price is as follows:
- 3 GB of RAM + 16 GB of flash memory – 127 dollars / 108 euros
- 3 GB of RAM + 32 GB of flash memory – 154 dollars / 131 euros
The above recommended prices for various modifications of Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 are valid only for the domestic Chinese market, and even then they have not yet been formally confirmed by the manufacturer.
In other countries, a smartphone can cost significantly be more at the expense of the costs of certification, logistics, customs fees, taxes and own margin of the store.
