The Redmi Note 5 Pro's dual-camera bump looks very familiar


The company also touts that Mi TV 4 supported most of the set-top boxes and Indian languages.

Xiaomi has launched the Mi LED TV 4, the company's first commercially available television set in India.

Like the company was rumoured for a long time, Xiaomi today announced its new mid-range smartphones - Redmi Note 5 Pro and Redmi Note 5. On top of that, the Redmi Note 5 Pro will also feature Face Unlock, which further explains the use of a high resolution lens on the front. Redmi Note 5 bears a stark resemblance to Apple's iPhone X with the placement of its dual rear cameras.

The Redmi Note 5 is in fact the India-variant of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus, which was launched in China in December a year ago. The Mi TV was earlier exclusively available in the Chinese market since May 2017, and Xiaomi even apologised to its fans at the launch event for bringing the Mi TV to the Indian market this late.

On the pricing front, Xiaomi launched the Mi TV 4 at Yuan 3,499 for the 49-inch version, which is around Rs 35,500 plus on conversion.

Xiaomi will also be unveiling the Redmi Note 5 Pro at the event. The device comes in three variants and the 3GB RAM variant has 32GB internal storage and you can choose between either 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage or 6GB RAM + 64GB internal storage. It is also the first phone in the industry to sport the Snapdragon 636 processor. The phone has a fingerprint scanner on the back and supports hybrid dual SIM cards. The company will stream the launch event live from their Facebook and YouTube account as well. The rear camera module comprises a 12MP f/2.2 primary sensor and a 5MP f/2.0 depth sensor that work in tandem to offer features like portrait mode and "authentic bokeh effects". This Mi TV 4 runs on MIUI TV with PatchWall AI based on Android OS. It will be available in two RAM and storage variants - 3GB RAM/32GB storage and 4GB RAM/64GB storage. The smartphone's high-end model is priced at Rs 16,999.
