Xiaomi unleashes ‘camera beast’ and premium smartphones in PH

Chinese tech firm Xiaomi has officially launched two new smartphones in the Philippines – the Redmi Note 5, dubbed the “camera beast”, and the premium Mi MIX 2S.

The Redmi Note 5 sports the Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 platform and brings flagship-level photography capabilities at an accessible price of P11,990.

Meanwhile, the Mi MIX 2S is a beautiful work of art that offers cutting-edge technologies, including an exceptional AI dual camera and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 platform, at P27,990.

The devices come with integrated AI features, including AI Portrait Mode for background blurring or adding bokeh, AI Beautify 4.0 for natural-looking enhancements, and face-unlocking.

The Redmi Note 5 employs a dual-camera setup, a combination usually adopted only in flagship smartphones. The main 12-megapixel sensor features large 1.4μm pixels, which can capture more light and deliver better results under low-light conditions.

Armed with Dual Pixel technology commonly used in professional dSLR cameras, the camera on Redmi Note 5 is able to deliver incredible autofocus speeds. Its front camera sports a 13-megapixel sensor, complemented by an LED Selfie light.

It uses Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 636 platform based on the 14nm manufacturing process. Thanks to its Kryo 260 architecture, 1.8GHz maximum clock speed, the Adreno 509 GPU, and its LPDDR4X DRAM (usually only available on flagship smartphones), it runs more apps simultaneously and switches between programs and games smoothly.

The phone sports a 5.99 inch FHD+ 18:9 full screen, large 4000mAh battery, support for fast charging, and the latest MIUI 9 operating system based on Android Oreo. It also comes in 4GB RAM + 64GB ROM.

A TPU case will be shipped in the box with every Redmi Note 5. It will be available at authorized Mi Stores at Trinoma and SM Megamall, as well as on open sale at Xiaomi’s official online store on Lazada, starting May 15, 2018.

The Mi MIX 2S

Mi MIX 2S has a beautiful ceramic back that features a four-sided curved design, transitioning smoothly into the aluminum frame that holds a 5.99” FHD+ full screen display. A white version has been introduced with MI MIX 2S, offering another gorgeous option for consumers.

Mi MIX 2S uses the latest Sony IMX363 flagship sensor for its dual-camera setup, with 1.4μm pixels for significantly better photos in low light, and Dual Pixel technology for super fast autofocusing.

Mi MIX 2S is available in 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM and 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM for P27,990 and P29,990 respectively. A TPU case will also be shipped in the box with every Mi MIX 2S this June.
