Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 has launched exclusively on SOUQ.com KSA with a starting early bird price of SAR 699.

Dubbed the 'Camera Beast', Redmi Note 5 sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 platform and has flagship-level photography capabilities. With a dual camera setup featuring a large 1.4μm-pixel sensor, AI camera effects and an LED Selfie light for its front camera, Redmi Note 5 is a photography powerhouse.

Saleem Hammad, General Manager KSA, SOUQ.com said: “SOUQ.com is dedicated to bringing globally innovative and distinguished brands to our customers at the most competitive price points and constantly exceed their expectations. We are pleased to provide easy access to Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 with extraordinary specs and attractive pricing to our customers in the KSA.”

Armed with Dual Pixel technology commonly used in professional dSLR cameras, the camera on Redmi Note 5 is able to deliver incredible autofocus speed so users won’t miss any single moment they are trying to capture. Every single pixel of the main 12-megapixel sensor contains two photodiodes (semiconductor devices that can convert light into electrical current) – resulting in 24 million photodiodes in total, which is nearly 30 times more than the number of photodiodes of traditional PDAF-enabled sensors of the same resolution. This allows the sensor to measure phase differences more effectively, thus improving autofocus speed significantly.

The front camera of Redmi Note 5 sports a 13-megapixel sensor, complemented by an LED Selfie light. When Portrait Mode is engaged, both the front and rear cameras come with Xiaomi's latest Beautify 4.0, which has different effects enhanced by AI calculations for a natural look similar to having an expert makeup session. Even without a second sensor, the front camera achieves a great bokeh effect in Portrait Mode thanks to AI technology that helps to isolate the subject from the background.

Powerful and efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 636
Redmi Note 5 uses Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 636 platform based on the 14nm manufacturing process. Users will experience faster performance whether they are editing a large spreadsheet or playing demanding games, thanks to its Kryo 260 architecture, 1.8GHz maximum clock speed, and the Adreno 509 GPU.

Meanwhile, Redmi Note 5 is the first device in the Redmi family to use LPDDR4X DRAM, which is usually only available on flagship smartphones. With up to 4GB of fast DRAM, Redmi Note 5 can run more apps simultaneously and switch between programs even more smoothly.

Availability and Price
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5 is available for purchase from June 5th in three different colours – Lake blue, Gold, and Black 699 and 799 SAR.
