Mysterious Xiaomi Redmi Smartphone With 18:9 Display Leaked in High-Res Image; Could Be the Redmi Note 5

By November 24th, 2017 AT 9:01 PM

It is expected that Xiaomi will be launching three new budget smartphones with 18:9 display and all the three will cater to the company’s Redmi line of products. The much-anticipated smartphones are believed to be the Redmi Note 5, Redmi 5, and the Redmi 5 Plus. Multiple reports in the past have suggested that the smartphones will be released in November, but eventually, that didn’t happen.

With every passing day, the anticipation on these smartphones is building up. And today, a high-resolution image of a mysterious Xiaomi smartphone with an 18:9 display leaked online, and this image belongs to one of the three smartphones. As you can see in the render, the smartphone has dual selfie cameras and minimal bezels on top and bottom. At the bottom, there’s a speaker grille.

This image was spotted on a Chinese website, but unfortunately, the report did not reveal any further details about the smartphone. Chances are the image might be of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, which has been in the rumour mill for quite some time.

Also, this render falls in-line with the Redmi smartphone image spotted on TENAA last month. The design of the smartphone leaked today, and the smartphone on TENAA images are nearly identical. The smartphone certified by TENAA was allegedly called as Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. So, going by that, this render could be of the Redmi Note 5 itself. However, the TENAA listing revealed a single rear camera setup, but there might be another variant of the same smartphone with dual rear cameras.

Nevertheless, of which smartphone it is, it looks stunning, at least in the render. However, we suggest you take this rumour with a grain of salt as there’s no official confirmation from Xiaomi. The Chinese company did not even tease the next-generation Redmi smartphones until now, and it’ still unclear whether they will be released in this year or not.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5, for now, is said to have a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display, Snapdragon 630 SoC (in India) and MediaTek Helio P25 SoC (in China), 3GB/4GB of RAM, 32GB/64GB of internal storage, dual 12MP+5MP rear cameras, 16MP front-facing camera, and a 4000mAh battery.

The Redmi 5, on the other hand, is said to have a 5.7-inch HD+ display, Snapdragon 450 SoC, 2GB/3GB/4GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB/64GB of internal storage, single 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, and a 4000mAh battery. The Redmi 5 Plus claimed to sport a 5.99-inch Full HD+ display and could be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC.
