Xiaomi Redmi 5 Listed On Chinese Telecom Website; 5.7-inch 18:9 Display, Snapdragon 625 SoC, and 3300mAh in Tow

The upcoming budget Xiaomi smartphones are all over the web. Yesterday, a couple of mysterious Xiaomi smartphone images were leaked online, and today, a Chinese telecommunications service provider named China Telecom has listed the Xiaomi Redmi 5 smartphone on its portal. And the best part of this listing is the images of the Xiaomi Redmi 5 and the complete specifications too.

As it was rumoured since the beginning, the Xiaomi Redmi 5 will have a 5.7-inch HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9. This isn’t a surprising news because, since the start, it was said that the Redmi 5 would come with an 18:9 display to match the ongoing trend of bezel-less smartphones.

However, what’s surprising here is that the listing suggests that the device will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC. As per the listing, the Redmi 5 will come with an MSM8953 SoC, which indeed is the Snapdragon 625 chipset. There was an image leaked online showing specifications of a Redmi smartphone, and it was said to be the Redmi Note 5. Nevertheless, going by this report, the phone must be the Redmi 5 itself.

Earlier reports revealed that Xiaomi would power the Redmi 5 smartphone with Snapdragon 450 SoC, but a Snapdragon 625 SoC smartphone at an even cheaper rate will be much-appreciated move. The Xiaomi Redmi 5 will come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, as per the China Telecom listing. There might be other RAM and storage models as well.

Furthermore, the listing suggests a 12MP camera at the back, along with a 5MP sensor on the front. This entire package will be fuelled with a 3300mAh battery, a downgrade from the 4100mAh unit seen on the Xiaomi Redmi 4 and Redmi Note 4.

In addition, the images of the smartphone reveal a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, much like earlier Redmi smartphones. The Xiaomi Redmi 5 will measure 7.7mm in thickness and weighs around 157 grams. The 4GB+64GB storage variant will be priced at 1399 Yuan, which converts to Rs 13,900.

As per the launch date goes, the Redmi 5 is claimed to launch before December 10 because the phone will be available starting December 10. That said, China Telecom removed the listing of the smartphone though. Also, Xiaomi might launch the Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi Note 5 smartphones at the same event.

It’s really time to move on from SD625 when SD630 and SD660 is available.
