The Xiaomi Redmi 5 series is probably the most affordable 18:9 smartphone lineup that comes with competitive specs. If you can’t wait for the official units to arrive in Malaysia, retailer DirectD has brought in imported units which are surprisingly cheaper than expected.
If you want to go “Full View” or “Full Screen” without burning a hole in your wallet, Xiaomi’s latest Redmi 5 series could be hitting our shores very soon. Announced earlier this month, the Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus are one of the most value for money smartphones that come with a tall 18:9 display from as low as 799CNY (about RM497).
UPDATE:: Xiaomi Redmi 5 series is now official.
Xiaomi will be announcing its new affordable Redmi 5 series that would come with an 18:9 Full View display. This could be the most affordable smartphone that offers a big screen experience in a smaller smartphone body.
