    The Redmi series has been Xiaomi’s mid-range smartphones with great specs and yet, pocket-friendly price tag. The device has maintained a consistent price tag since the Redmi 1, although, with few series alterations here and there.

    However, one thing that has not remained consistent with the Redmi series since inceptions is the design and of course, specifications, and the Redmi 5 is not an exception. The device boasts the all-new and trending 18:9 Full Vision Display with HD+ (720 x 1440) resolution. In fact, the Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus, is Xiaomi’s first smartphone to pack Full Vision display.
