Both the smartphones will ship with MIUI 9 out of the box.

With the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus launch event around the corner, Xiaomi is in overdrive mode in promoting the handset online.

With a market share of 23.5 per cent and having shipped 9.2 million smart phones in the quarters, the company has become the fastest growing smart phone brand in India with a growth rate of almost 300 per cent year on year, Sunil said. Nearly every other day we are seeing some new info (not necessarily all accurate) about it, including some official teasers.

Xiaomi Redmi 5A, dubbed as "Desh ka smartphone" by the company, starts at Rs 4,999 for the 2GB RAM and 32GB storage variant.

Amazon Prime Video now available for Apple TV
Amazon Prime Video has finally landed on Apple TV , around six months after Tim Cook first said it was coming. The Amazon Prime Video app for Apple TV is now available for download. "And they're going to return it".

According to a AliExpress listing, the Redmi 5 price will be $199.99 (roughly Rs. 12,900) for the 2GB RAM and 16GB storage model. Additionally, the company also promoted the launch of the Xiaomi Redmi 5, with a few video teasers. So, the prices listed on the website can't be taken for real and we have to wait for tomorrow until the official announcement of both the smartphones. And both are powered by Android with Xiaomi's MIUI skinning. A 1.8GHz octa-core processor and a 3,200mAh battery are likely to power the Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus will get a slightly upgraded 2GHz octa-core chipset with a 4,000mAh battery. Both the phones will look identical, and will only differ in the display size with the Redmi 5 Plus being the larger of the two. For the camera, the smartphone is said to feature a rear camera of 12-megapixel.

The Redmi 5, on the other hand, features 2 GB RAM variant with 16 GB internal storage.

Sung's tweets didn't reveal anything about the specs, but as per past reports, the Redmi 5 could sport a 5.7-inch HD+ (720x1440) display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

On the camera front, the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus are getting a 12MP rear-facing shooter and a 5MP front snapper, which again isn't a massive improvement over the 13MP rear snapper with f/2.0 aperture, PDAF and 5MP selfie snapper with f/2.2 aperture in the Redmi 4.
