Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 renders tease 18:9 bezel-less design, dual cameras and more
The Redmi Note 5 launch may be upon us after all, although Xiaomi is yet to confirm its existence. A new batch of renders of the alleged Redmi Note 5 have now hit the internet showing off Xiaomi’s upcoming Redmi Note 4 successor in all its glory. At the same time, the renders, seem to confirm ongoing leaks and rumours regarding the design of the alleged Redmi Note 5, and dual cameras that are fast becoming an industry norm even in the affordable price segment.
Specification more on like.
As per the renders, the Redmi Note 5 is seen sporting a full-metal body and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, much like the Redmi Note 4. Unlike the Redmi Note 4, however, the Redmi Note 5 is seen sporting a larger 5.99-inch 1080p+ 18:9 display on the front and dual cameras consisting of one 16-megapixel sensor and another 5-megapixel sensor (for portrait selfies) on the back. The Redmi Note 5 will, in addition, reportedly come in three colours: gray, black and blue.
On the inside, the Redmi Note 5 is said to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor clubbed with up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB storage. It is said to run Android Nougat-based MIUI 9, and fueled by a 4,100mAh battery with support for fast charging.
The current-generation Redmi Note 4 comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD display. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor clubbed with Adreno 506GPU. It is available in as many as three RAM and storage options: 2GB/16GB, 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB with all the variants supporting expandable storage via a micro-SD card. The Redmi Note 4 is further backed by a 4,100mAh battery.
The phone comes with a 13-megapixel camera on the rear with f/2.0 aperture, Phase Detection Autofocus and dual-LED (dual-tone) flash. On the front, the Redmi Note 4 comes with a 5-megapixel camera.
Previously, a Xiaomi super moderator had claimed that, the recently launched Redmi 5 Plus is going to remain Xiaomi’s only large-screened affordable option and the company has apparently dropped the Note moniker altogether as of this moment. This meant the Redmi 5 Plus would be the Redmi Note 5 for all intents and purposes. With growing speculations and leaks around the Redmi Note 5 now, it seems, Xiaomi might just surprise us in the days to come.
Xiaomi is set to be an exhibitor at the upcoming MWC 2017, and rumour has it that it may launch the Redmi Note 5 ahead of the trade show, and then showcase it there for a global audience. There is of course no official confirmation from Xiaomi yet.
