The thing that Xiaomi does best is its ability to somehow manage to combine premium smartphones with affordable prices. Although, this was to be expected since Chinese manufacturers have a reputation for creating entry-level smartphones that are packed with impressive specs.
Just look at Redmi Note 5A for example. This smartphone offers a high-end set of hardware specs and its still priced in the mid-range budget range.
Although, things are not looking good for Redmi Note 5A. Even though the smartphone was launched only a couple of months ago, Xiaomi is already getting ready to unveil a brand-new device which is going to make fans to replace their Note 5A with it. The device we are talking about is called Redmi Note 5 and today we are going to compare it against the 2017 Note 5A.
The Chinese smartphone manufacturer seems to believe that 5.50-inches is the perfect size for smartphones screen since Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5A are equipped with the same 5.50-inches panel.
Although, there is a major difference between them. The not-yet unveiled Redmi Note 5 features a full HD pixel resolution of 1080 x 1920 while Redmi Note 5A features a lower resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels.
Processor and RAM
Xiaomi equipped Redmi Note 5 with one of Qualcomm’s highly impressive Snapdragon 630 processors and bundled it with 3GB of RAM. On the other hand, we have Redmi Note 5A which ships with a slower Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 CPU and only 2GB of RAM.
As we can clearly see, the upcoming Redmi Note 5 is going to completely overshadow Redmi Note 5A, at least in terms of specs. Therefore, Xiaomi fans who own a Redmi Note 5A should start putting some money away to replace their device with Redmi Note 5 when it comes out.
