Redmi 5A: Unboxing and first impressions

On the optics front, the Nokia 2, as well as the Bharat 5, come with cameras that on paper at least fail to excite. The device comes equipped with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, BDS, and a 3.5mm audio jack. After the introductory scheme expires, Xiaomi will sell the device at Rs 5,999 for the base variant and Rs 6,999 for the higher 3GB/32GB variant. The Bharat 5 too runs Android Nougat with a custom UI, but there is no information on the software updates so far.

On Friday, Indian manufacturer Micromax launched its budget Smartphone Micromax Bharat 5 at a price of Rs 5,555 which puts it directly and squarely in a battle with Xiaomi's "Desh ka smartphone" which is priced at Rs 4,999 and will be available at Rs 3,999 for the first five million customers.
