Xiaomi Redmi 5A rumoured Specifications

After the success of the Xiaomi Redmi 4A, the Redmi 5A is expected to come in as an updated successor to the smartphone. In terms of build, we can expect the Xiaomi Redmi 5A to have a metal body. Leaks point at a 5 inch HD resolution display on the Redmi 5A.
In terms of optics, rumours indicate a similar 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing unit. While this is no different from the Redmi 4A, we can expect the Xiaomi Redmi 5A to come with a wider aperture or a more optimized setup as an update.
Coming to hardware, the Xiaomi Redmi 5A is rumoured to pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 427 processor. This processor is said to be an optimized successor to the Snapdragon 425 SoC. Leaks point at 2GB RAM and 16GB storage on the Xiaomi Redmi 5A. This phone may also get a 3GB+32GB variant later.
Software on the Xiaomi Redmi 5A will be undoubtedly handled by MIUI 9 backed by Android 7.0 Nougat. Xiaomi has already rolled out MIUI 9 to their entire range and has brought many new features and optimizations to even their older phones.
The only part about the leaks that we doubt to be accurate is the battery. The Xiaomi Redmi 5A is tipped to feature a 3,000 mAh battery which is lesser than that on the Redmi 4A. With increasing battery capacities, we can safely say Xiaomi could add a 3,300 mAh powerhouse on the Redmi 5A.
Pricing and Availability
The Xiaomi Redmi 5A is tipped to be available starting from October 20. The smartphone is expected to come with a price tag of 799 Yuan (Rs. 7,900).
