No one needs an introduction to Xiaomi's Redmi range of smartphones in its homeland and in India. Xiaomi is looking to introduce a successor to the popular Redmi Note 4 smartphone now, and the company has a tough job on its hands to fill the shoes of Redmi Note 4.
Rumours about the Redmi Note 5 have been surfacing online for quite some time now. The talk of the town is the 18:9 display and dual rear cameras on the Redmi Note 5, and today's leak nearly confirmed both these rumours.
Images appeared on Chinese media revealed front and rear of the upcoming Redmi Note smartphone, and it could be the Redmi Note 5. As it was rumoured all these days, the Redmi Note 5 will feature an 18:9 display, but the report didn't reveal anything about the screen size though. Like the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2, this mysterious device also comes with on-screen navigation keys.
At the back of the phone, we have the dual camera setup, and the sensors said to be used are a 16MP primary one and a 5MP secondary one. That said, the secondary sensor will act as a depth sensor to achieve an insane depth of field in the images.
As seen with last two Redmi Note iterations, the Redmi Note 5 will also come with unimetal body design, and the back of the phone is quite similar to the Redmi Note 4.
Talking about the specifications of Redmi Note 5, the Chinese version is likely to be powered by MediaTek Helio P25 SoC, while the Indian variant is said to come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 chipset. Following the iteration of Redmi Note smartphones, the device will come in different RAM and storage options- 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB.
The smartphone will run Android Nougat based MIUI 9 and will be backed by a 4000mAh battery. The Redmi Note 5's price has been revealed as well. The base variant of the phone will cost 999 Yuan, whereas the premium 4GB/64GB variant will come for 1599 Yuan.
Having said that, the Redmi Note 5 could become a cheaper 18:9 display smartphone in China as Oppo and Vivo smartphones are way higher than the rumoured pricing of Redmi Note 5.
