Xiaomi Redmi 5 Key Specs and Price Leaked; Will Sport A 5-inch Display and Snapdragon 625 SoC

After having made a humongous number of sales of the Redmi 4, Redmi Note 4, and the Redmi 4A smartphones in India, Xiaomi is reportedly warming up to launch the successors to all three phones in the home country very soon.


Today brings a new leak hinting at the specs list and the pricing of the Xiaomi Redmi 5. This leak gives away that the Redmi 5 will most likely be available in two storage variants – one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory and the second one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal memory.

As for the pricing, the Redmi 5-series of smartphones are likely to cost a little higher than the Redmi 4-series smartphones. Redmi 5, particularly, is rumoured to be priced at USD 162 (approximately Rs. 10,442) for the base model. The device’s 4GB variant is supposed to cost around USD 191 (approximately Rs. 12,311).

To recall, the Redmi 4 had been launched in three variants – 2GB RAM + 16GB storage, 3GB RAM + 32GB storage, and the last one being 4GB RAM + 64GB storage. The 2GB RAM Redmi 4 is currently priced at Rs. 6,999, and the price goes up to Rs. 8,999 for the 3GB model and Rs. 10,999 for the 4GB model in India.


In addition to the pricing details, the leak also reveals most of the Redmi 5 specifications including its 3,680mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support. Its predecessor, the Redmi 4 is backed by a much bigger 4,100mAh battery set up. At a glance, the Redmi 5 will look quite similar to the Redmi 4. However, the Redmi 5 will reportedly sport a 5-inch Full-HD display and will be internally powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 chipset.

Going by the leak, The Redmi 5 comes with a fingerprint scanner on the rear panel of the device and with the home, back, and menu capacitive keys below the display screen up front. The device was recently spotted on a Chinese certification site as well, where Xiaomi products usually make their first appearance.

Xiaomi should make product launches a yearly affair !!

Why are they decreasing the battery capacity? They should’ve stuck to the 4100mah battery instead.


It won’t make much of a difference since the processor used is more power efficient and add quick charge to the mix, it’s a win win situation. The current Redmi 4 takes 3.5-4hrs to fully charge, which is a very big let down.

Yeah that’s because Xiaomi disabled quick charging on the redmi 4 and note 4. The Lenovo p2 got a 5000mah battery, and it has quick charge. It charges in approximately two hours.

I’m getting 9 hours sot on heavy usage on the redmi note 4. Which is not a bad thing after all.
