Xiaomi’s Redmi series is always known for offering more hardware for your money. With the Redmi 5 and 5 Plus, now everyone can own a Full Screen or 18:9 display smartphone at an affordable price. To make it even more enticing, Xiaomi Malaysia has announced a price cut for its higher-spec Redmi 5 model and it’s now RM80 cheaper than before.
Xiaomi has finally introduced more variants of its Redmi 5 series in the Malaysian market. Whether you’re looking for something cheaper or for a device that packs more RAM and storage, Xiaomi has got you covered with a total of 4 models.
Xiaomi’s Redmi 5 series is getting expanded by the end of this week. After introducing its single 3GB RAM + 32GB storage variant for the Malaysian market, Xiaomi will be releasing two more models to cover different price points.
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.
This is it. If you’re looking for a new mid-range smartphone with an 18:9/Full display from Xiaomi, the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus are now available in Malaysia. Priced from RM679, this is the most affordable “Full Display” smartphone you can buy in Malaysia.
UPDATE: It appears that retailer DirectD has removed their Redmi 5/5 Plus product pages and social post.
UPDATE 2: The Redmi 5/5 Plus are now officially on sale in Malaysia.
Xiaomi’s latest Redmi 5 series has finally arrived in Malaysia with official Xiaomi Malaysia warranty. Available in two sizes, the Redmi 5 is priced from RM679, making it one of the most affordable 18:9 smartphones you can buy right now.

Looking for an affordable “FullView” display smartphone that has decent hardware and an affordable price tag? The Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus are some of the top contenders that are priced under RM800. If you prefer not to get imported sets, it appears that the official Mi Malaysia units are hitting our shores as early as next week.
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.
The iPhone X may not be the first “Full Screen” smartphone but it’s the first iPhone to come without a home button (not even a virtual one). Because of this new change, Apple had introduced a couple of gestures which are easy to adapt by existing iOS users. Apparently, this seems to be so effective that the folks at Xiaomi’s MIUI development team are incorporating some of these gestures on their upcoming MIUI 9 update.
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).
