Xiaomi Redmi 5 And Redmi 5 Plus Sale Starts From December 12, Price Starts At 699 Yuan

Xiaomi Redmi 5A launched in India starting at Rs 4,999/-. And if you're one of them, it is likely to be confused between the two new phones.

After the sale crosses five million customers, the Redmi 5A 2GB RAM/16GB will cost you Rs 5,999.

Here is a comparison between the two budget smartphones.

Texas A&M to hire Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher
ESPN reports that he will not coach the team in their regular season finale against Louisiana-Monroe this Saturday. And I guess we'll see [Fisher] next year, if that's what he's going to do.

If Micromax can offer the Bharat 5 with better hardware and display at a price of around Rs. 5000-7000/-, then it can give the Redmi 5A a run for its money in the budget segment. The company has partnered with Vodafone to provide 50GB of free data for new and existing Vodafone subscribers who purchase the new Micromax handset. The Micromax Bharat 5 has a 5.2inch HD resolution display which is encased in 2.5D curved glass. The minimalistic design of Redmi 5A makes it look more like other Redmi smartphones, which isn't a bad thing at all.

The affordable Bharat 5 smartphone bundles an exciting launch offer.

Coming to the front, all three phones sport a 720p display which only differ slightly in size and specifications.

Tesla activates world's biggest battery
This Friday, Jay Weatherhill, the state's premier, flipped the switch on the massive battery, calling it "history in the making". Being one of the world's biggest coal exporters, Australia has also always been seen as one of the world's worst polluters.

These days, a good camera becomes a great USP for phones. On the front, there's a 5MP snapper with f/2.0 aperture with Pro and Smart Beautify features. The Micromax Bharat 5 has a MediaTek chipset but the company has not specified the model number. The Redmi 5A comes with a highly efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC and 2/3GB LPDDR3 RAM.

Xiaomi Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus might come in Black, Rose Gold, Gold, White, Blue, Red, Pink, Gray and Silver color variants. The 2GB + 16GB variant of the 5A has been priced at Rs. 5,999/-.

The performance on the Micromax Bharat 5 is going to be lacklustre as it has just 1GB of RAM.

Nine killed as terrorists storm Peshawar's Agricultural Training Institute
Another three people died at Khyber Teaching Hospital and 17 wounded were there, director Nekdad Afridi said. Pakistani security officials inspect the scene of a terrorist attack at Peshawar University in Peshawar .

Connectivity options on the Bharat 5 include- 4G VoLTE support, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, Micro-USB port for charging, FM Radio and 3.5mm headphone jack. The rear panel is made out of plastic and sees the Micromax logo in the centre and a camera with LED Flash on the top left corner. So it bumped up the battery to 5000mAh, which promises to deliver around 2 days of usage and 500 hours of standby time.
