Large 1.25μm pixels and front LED Selfie-light for natural, well-exposed photos

Redmi 5 comes with rear cameras sporting large 1.25μm-pixel sensors. The larger the pixels, the more light a sensor can capture, giving better image quality even in situations when lighting conditions are not perfect.

The front Selfie-light on the Redmi 5 allows users to capture beautiful selfies even in low-light conditions. With an always-on mode, this also works when shooting videos. Combined with Xiaomi’s Beautify 3.0, Redmi 5 delivers flattering and natural selfies.

Long battery life and MIUI 9 enhancements

Battery life is one of the most important features on the Redmi series, and Redmi 5 continues this tradition with a built-in 3300 mAh battery.

Flagship-level testing standards

Xiaomi’s Redmi series is widely recognized for high quality, a result of various factors including the use of best-in-class suppliers, and extremely stringent reliability tests comparable to those used for flagship devices.

One example of Xiaomi’s dedication to introducing the highest quality features on all its devices is a design tailored to buffer the impact of any fall in the new Redmi 5 smartphones. With a reinforced structure, the likelihood of a broken screen is reduced in cases when a user drops the smartphone, landing corner first.  Furthermore, enhancements to the earpiece, including an additional waterproof layer, help protect the Redmi 5 from sweat and dust, reducing the likelihood of the call volume dropping over time.

The Redmi 5 (2GB+16 GB) is available in three colours; Gold, Black and Blue. The exclusive Mistore.pk price for pre-booking starts at PKR 14,999 starting 20th February. The Redmi 5 (3GB+32GB) will be launching in the near future.

A limited stock of the Redmi 5 will be available on the discounted price during the flash sale on 25th February from 6 PM to 10 PM on the Mi Store. But if you want to get your hands on this beauty for sure, head over to mistore.pk now to pre-book yours!

Watching The Blood Moon at Bay View Academy Karachi

I was so excited to see the first Total Lunar Eclipse of 2018 in Karachi as it was the rarest event happening after 150 years. Due to the combination of three lunar phenomena: a super moon, a blue moon and a blood moon at the same time since 1866.

Being a member of ‘Karachi Astronomers Society‘ I asked Mr. Zain who is also co-founder of  (KAS) if there is any happening event in Karachi where I can see the Lunar Eclipse with telescope, he told that he is conducting a Moon sighting event at Bay View Academy.

I reached the school at 6.29pm as the eclipse reached its peak at 6:31pm but it was near the horizon but after few mins. of searching the sky Mr. Zain finally spotted the Blood Moon.

All of a sudden kids gathered around Mr. Zain and asked that they also want to see the Lunar Eclipse so the teacher asked them to make a queue and they saw the Total Lunar Eclipse for the first time with telescope. Here we have not one but three telescopes with different magnification.

  • Sky-Watcher 90/900 AZ3 Refractor Telescope
  • Sky-Watcher 6″ f/8 Traditional Dobsonian Telescope
  • Sky-Watcher 8″ Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope

After half an hour Mr. Zain gave the tour of the night sky, told them about the brightest star in the night sky ‘Sirius’ in Canis Majoris  constellation followed by Orion constellation and Oroin Nebula (one of the brightest nebulae, and is visible to the naked eye).

Kids asked some questions about the night sky like, “can we see The Milky Way ?”, “can you point out the Jupiter?”.  It’s too hard to see the Milky Way in Urban City due to light pollution and Jupiter is under your feet (below the horizon).

Lunar Eclipse with telescope

It was so much fun interacting with these kids and answering their questions about the Moon and the night sky. Few of them were screaming after seeing the Moon details in the telescope. For me it was such a memorable event watching the Total Lunar Eclipse in Sky-Watcher 8″ Collapsible Dobsonian Telescope.
