Meet Micromax Bharat 5, the Rs 5555 Competitor to Xiaomi Redmi 5A

Xiaomi launches its cheapest phone in India Redmi 5A: All you need to know from price to availability

Xiaomi Redmi 5A launched in India starting at Rs 4,999/-. The phone has been announced in two variants - 2GB RAM paired with 16GB storage and 3GB of RAM mated to a 32GB ROM - with the entry model being announced with a price tag of 5,999 while the 3GB RAM variant will retail for 7,999. There's Adreno 308 GPU for enhanced graphics performance.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A is backed by a 3000mAh non-removable battery, that is claimed to give up to 8 days of standby time.

The Xiaomi Redmi Y1 is a dual SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM. Up front, there is a 5MP selfie camera with facial recognition and f/2.0 aperture.

The Redmi 5A employs a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 425 SoC under its hood.

Does she feel like it is a battle scar? She cherishes on/off beau Justin Bieber and is best friends with her ex, the Weeknd. The 25-year-old gave a candid acceptance speech where she spoke about her kidney transplant in September this year.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A sports a 13MP rear camera with ƒ/2.2 aperture, LED flash, Low light enhancement, HDR, Panorama, Burst mode, Face recognition, and Real-time filters. But the Micromax Bharat 5 is a clear cut victor when it comes to battery life. Xiaomi has taken care of it with the Redmi 5A, giving it a dedicated microSD card slot apart from the dualSIM slots.

Display: The Redmi 5A comes with a standard 5-inch display with a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. But in terms of hardware performance, the Redmi 5A with a highly efficient Snapdragon 425 processor emerges out as the victor in comparison to the entry-level MediaTek SoC used by the Bharat 5.

On the optics front, the Nokia 2, as well as the Bharat 5, come with cameras that on paper at least fail to excite. Connectivity options are- Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 3.5mm audio-jack, Micro-USB and Global Positioning System. It is expected to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, and run the Android Nougat-based MIUI 9 operating system. We compare this offer to some "effective price" deals offered by other manufacturers and talk about how Xiaomi has done a good job with its marketing of the Redmi 5A. The latest entry to the list is Micromax Bharat 5 - the successor to the Bharat 4. After the introductory scheme expires, Xiaomi will sell the device at Rs 5,999 for the base variant and Rs 6,999 for the higher 3GB/32GB variant.

Xiaomi has launched the Desh ka Smartphone Xiaomi Redmi 5A in India. Both the new and existing Vodafone users buying the device will get 10GB free data per month for five months that totals to 50GB of free data.
