When it comes to the budget segment, there are no two thoughts that Xiaomi rules the roost. The Redmi series of its sub-Rs 10000 smartphones have been doing really well in the market and Xiaomi seems to be really banking on it for the growth. While the Xiaomi Redmi 4 continues to slay the Indian handset market, the handset maker has already started to work on the next iteration of the handset. Here is a brief overview of the handset if you are looking out for the next generation.
Powerful Battery: A powerful battery and an impressive battery life has been the mainstay for Redmi devices for a while now. The new Xiaomi Redmi 5 too comes with a massive 4,100mAh battery, which can easily last a whole day of extensive use. Moreover, the handset comes with support for quick charging, which means that topping it up from zero to 100 is pretty fast.
Good cameras: Apart from the battery, the handset maker is also known for its cameras. Ever since Xiaomi came out with Mi3, its handsets have been receiving accolades for their imaging prowess. The new Xiaomi Redmi 5 is also expected to come with a powerful setup of 16MP and 8MP snappers on the rear and front panel, respectively.
Good processor: In the budget segment, the top priority of any consumer is to have a device that performs well and has a decent spec sheet. Xiaomi devices are known to come with the top of the line spec sheet in budget and Xiaomi Redmi 5 will not be an exception. While the Redmi 4 comes with Snapdragon 435, Redmi is expected to come with newer generation of the same.
Hybrid SIM slot: One of the biggest issue that smartphone today have is the inability to use dual SIM and expandable storage together. The Xiaomi Redmi 5 too will come with Hybrid SIM slot, which might turn out to be a deal breaker for many.
