Buyers of the Mi TV 4 will get a Mi IR cable worth Rs 299, a 3-month subscription to Sony Liv and Hungama Play worth Rs 619, and on-site installation worth Rs 1099 for free.

At an event in New Delhi, Xiaomi has launched today two new smartphones - Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro.

The new smartphone features a 5.99-inch FHD+ (2160x1080) display with an 18:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass for protection. Xiaomi has launched the 55 inches variant in India.

Just like the Redmi Note 5, the Note 5 Pro has a 5.99-inch display with a 2160 x 1080px resolution which translates to an 18:9 aspect ratio.

The phone features 12-megapixel primary lens with 1.25-micron pixel and f/2.2 aperture, while for the front, there is a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash and Beautify 3.0.

Our test unit had 4GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage that can be increased up to 256GB using microSD card.

These phones are packed with 4000 mAh battery with 5V/2A charging.
