Late last month, Chinese smartphone brand Xiaomi launched the Redmi 5A in India as a successor to the Redmi 4A that was launched in the country back in March this year. The Redmi 5A is offered with 2 GB and 3 GB RAM, and, both of them are sold through Flipkart, Mi.com and Mi Home stores. Well, starting today, the 3 GB RAM variant of the Redmi 5A will be sold through offline stores as well.
The 3 GB RAM variant of the Redmi 5A, which comes with 32 GB of internal storage, will be sold through offline retailers and Mi Preferred stores in India starting today. However, while the 3 GB RAM variant is priced ₹6999 online, it will be sold for ₹500 more, i.e., ₹7499, through offline retailers and Mi Preferred stores.
Well, while the 3 GB RAM variant is now available through offline stores, we can expect the 2 GB RAM variant to be sold through offline stores soon. However, like the 3 GB RAM variant, the 2 GB RAM variant might also be sold at a higher price through offline stores in the country.
The 2 GB RAM variant is priced at ₹5999 online, however, the first 5 Million units of the phone will be sold for ₹4999. Hence, if Xiaomi decides to sell the 2 GB RAM variant of Redmi 5A through offline stores, it might either be priced ₹5499 or ₹6499.
