The latest and greatest smartphones are getting more expensive these days. Flagship smartphones used to cost around RM2,000 a few years ago but now they could go more than RM4,000 for the top spec model. It doesn’t make sense to spend so much money on a phone that you’re likely to replace every two or three years.
What if there’s a phone that could deliver your most wanted flagship features at a more sensible price? It’s time to get acquainted with the Redmi Note 5 that’s coming to Malaysia very soon.
Top notch hardware
Succeeding the popular Redmi Note 4, the latest Redmi Note 5 aims to deliver excellent performance at a lower price point. It runs on a Snapdragon 636 processor that uses Kryo 260 cores that are often associated with flagship processors. With its 14nm fabrication process, you can get great performance that’s frugal on battery consumption.
For the first time on the Redmi Note series, the Redmi Note 5 uses high-performance LPDDR4X RAM for smoother multi-tasking.
Go big like the big boys
It’s time to maximise your viewing experience as the Redmi Note 5 comes with a large 5.99” display. Thanks to its cinematic 18:9 display aspect ratio, you can get a bigger screen without feeling too big in the hands. Best of all, there’s no notch to hinder your video watching experience.
Capture high-quality images with flagship dual-cameras
The Redmi Note 5 comes with a 12MP + 5MP camera combo at the rear. Not only it can produce high-quality bokeh photos like popular flagship smartphones, it can capture more light with its larger 1.4 micron pixels and faster f/1.9 lens.
For the first time on a Redmi Note series, it gets a dual photodiode focus technology which is often found on professional dSLR cameras. This makes focusing super quick allowing you to capture the moment with sharper details, especially in challenging low light situations. It’s remarkable that such camera feature is available on a phone that costs less than RM1,000.
The Redmi Note 5 also features a 13MP f/2.0 front camera which is designed to take great selfies. With Beautify 4.0, you will always get a perfect shot of yourself that’s enhanced by AI. No worries about low light situations as the Redmi Note 5 also comes with its own soft selfie light. Despite having just one camera at the front, it also allows you to take portrait shots with depth of field effects.
Large battery to last you a full day
Everyone needs a phone that they can rely on and the Redmi Note 5 comes with a generous 4,000mAh battery. That’s more than what most flagship smartphones are offering, and it can last up to a full day on a single charge. With the Redmi Note 5, you could finally leave your powerbanks at home.
The Redmi Note 5 is no doubt a smartphone that can deliver top notch flagship features at an affordable price. Watch out for more updates from Mi Malaysia on 24 April 2018.
UPDATE: The Redmi Note 5 is officially priced from RM799. Preorder starts on 25 April 2018.
