Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Likely to Arrive in August With MIUI 9 and Snapdragon 630 SoC

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is undoubtedly the much-awaited budget smartphone of 2017 due to the reputation created by its predecessors. No company has achieved the success of what Xiaomi achievements with the Redmi series of phones over the last two years, especially with the Redmi Note 3 and Redmi Note 4.


The success mantra for Xiaomi is to pack top-notch specs at affordable price points. In India, though, Xiaomi is having a dream run with the Redmi smartphones. A new report from China has now revealed some details about the upcoming Redmi smartphone- the Redmi Note 5.

Few promotional images of the Redmi Note 5 have posted online. According to those pictures, the Redmi Note 5 will have a 5.5-inch Full HD display, carrying a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, just like its predecessors. At the heart of the phone will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 SoC, which was announced recently. The chipset will have support for X12 LTE modem for faster LTE speeds. It may have up to 4GB of RAM and Adreno 508 GPU to handle the graphics.


Furthermore, an image shows that the device will include a USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.0, Quick Charge 4.0, and hybrid dual-SIM card slot. The fingerprint scanner is likely to be placed at the front of the phone, below the display.

The images which are posted online also suggests a presence of a 16MP camera at the back, along with a 13MP shooter at the front. Furthermore, the device will come with storage options up to 64GB, same as the Redmi Note 4. And lastly, the Redmi Note 5 will be laden with Android 7.1.1 Nougat based MIUI 9, which is rumoured to release in this month. The phone is said to come with a smaller 3790mAh battery.


Also, the report suggests the pricing of the phone- the premium variant of the Redmi Note 5 will cost up to $200 (approx. Rs. 13,000). Other variants of the device will be priced lower than that. At the moment, the release date of the device is still unknown, but usually, Xiaomi releases a new Redmi Note smartphone in China in August every year.

And the device will be launched in India in the month of January every year. Hopefully, the same continues this year as well.
