Xiaomi has always been the king of value for money and when it comes to smartphones priced under RM1,000, it is hard not to recommend the Redmi Note 4. It offers top-notch specs and a decent build at a price that’s hard to beat. When the Redmi 5 Plus was introduced a couple of months back, the specs are roughly the same as the current Redmi Note 4.
For those looking for a proper upgrade, Xiaomi has officially announced its latest Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro. The event took place in India, which is Xiaomi’s biggest market outside of China.
Xiaomi will be announcing its latest mid-range smartphones, the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro, in India this afternoon. These are the successors of the current value for money, Redmi Note 4, and they are setting up the game with a Full Display (18:9) and a new dual-camera setup. After the launch of the iPhone X, the unmistakable vertical dual-camera bump is making its way to more Android phones and from the recent leaks, it appears that the Redmi Note 5 Pro will follow this same design.
Looking for a Redmi Note 4 successor? This could be it. After it was speculated that Xiaomi might drop its Redmi “Note” moniker, it appears that the Redmi Note 5 device could be announced tomorrow on Valentine’s Day. The big reveal is happening in India and it has been a year since the current Redmi Note 4 for international markets was launched.
The Redmi Note 4 is undeniably the best bang for your buck smartphone priced under RM1,000. You get a decent sized 5.5″ Full HD screen and a frugal yet capable Snapdragon 625 processor with a generous amount of RAM and storage. If you’re waiting for its successor, it appears that Xiaomi is dropping the Redmi “Note” moniker so you won’t be seeing a Redmi Note 5 model anytime soon.
Love the screen size of the Redmi Note 4 but looking for something that’s more affordable? The Redmi Note 5A is coming to Malaysia real soon. Ahead of its availability next week, a couple of authorised Mi Malaysia retailers have started offering pre-orders for the device.
If you’re on a tight budget, Xiaomi has heaps of entry-level phones but almost all of them feature a modest 5.0″ HD 720p display. Want something bigger? There’s the Redmi Note 4 that offers a 5.5″ full HD screen with price starting from RM799.
For those looking for a 5.5″ smartphone at a lower price, Xiaomi is about to introduce its new Redmi Note 5A. According to rumours, this could be priced at 999 CNY which is about RM642.
