Mi Malaysia, the Malaysian counterpart has finally unveiled the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in the Malaysian Market. Not just that, the Mi Mix 2 now comes in a Special Edition as well!
Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus
The Redmi 5 and 5 Plus is Xiaomi’s latest smartphone to feature the 18:9 aspect ratio display along side with the Mi MiX 2. The Redmi 5 comes with a 5.7″ 720p HD+ display. It’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 clocked in at 1.8GHz along with 3GB RAM. In terms of battery, it has a 3300 mAh that’s pretty huge for a smartphone like this. It also comes with 32GB of Internal Storage. Don’t worry, it’s expandable via SD Card as well.
The Redmi 5 Plus on the other hand has a 5.99″ 1080p FHD+ display. It’s pwered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 clocked in at 2.0GHz along with 3GB RAM. As for the battery, it has 700mAh higher than the Redmi 5, which is 4000mAh. The 5 Plus also comes with 32GB of Internal Storage. It’s also expandable via Micro SD Card too.
Mi Mix 2 Special Edition
Xiaomi showcased their new Mi Mix 2 last year and they also showed the renders of the white Mi Mix 2 which I am a huge fan of. It was available in the Chinese Market sometime last year in December and now it’s here in Malaysia. What makes this particular Mi Mix 2 apart is the fact that it’s not only a Special Edition but also a Limited Edition.
Just to run down what you’ll find in this Mi Mix 2 is that, aesthetically it’s now White. Under the hood, it still has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Processor. A gorgeous 5.99″ FHD Bezelless display on the front. The Mix 2 also has a 12MP Rear facing shooter on the back. It also comes in a Ceramic finish. Unlike the black Mi Mix 2, which comes in the 6GB RAM and 64GB Internal Storage configuration, the white Mi Mix 2 actually comes in 8GB RAM and 128GB Internal Storage! Now that is a huge deal.

The Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus will be available starting from today for the price for RM 679 and RM 749 respectively. Whereas the Mi Mix 2 Special Edition, it’s also available now for RM 2699. We’ll be honest, for that configuration the price tag is amaze-balls!
