Leaks suggest that it would be arriving as the first Redmi Note 4 series smartphone with dual rear cameras. The Redmi and Redmi Note 4 smartphones have been breaking sales record in India. The inclusion of dual rear cameras on the alleged Redmi Note 5A would certainly help the company in achieving even higher sales results. The dual camera system is expected to include a wide-angle OV12A10 sensor and a OV13880 sensor from OmniVision. The front-facing camera of the Redmi Note 5A is equipped with a Samsung S5K5E8 sensor. The rear side of the purported Redmi Note 5A is speculated to feature a FPC1020 fingerprint scanner.

Just as Redmi 4A arrived with plastic chassis and low-end specs compared to the Redmi 4, the alleged Redmi Note 5A is also expected to feature low-end specs than the Redmi Note 5. Hence, the Redmi Note 5A is also rumored to house a plastic body. As far as the Redmi Note 5 is expected to arrive with specs 5.5-inch FHD display, Snapdragon 630 and 3,790mAh battery.

    Note 5A will surely feature full metal body. Plastic body at this time doesn’t make any sense.

  • Muhammad Yasir

    I NEED IT !

  • Hippo

    And they call it “5” because of the DualCam, right?! Or will there be something else?

    • zymo

      smaller battery, SD630, USB type-C….

    • balcobomber25

      They call it “5” because the last one was called “4” and the one before it was called “3”.

    Damn I was about to order the RN4 Global Edition but since I have heard of the Redmi Note 5 I am deeply hesitating…What should I do??????????

    • Jh1

      Personally, I’d wait if you’re in a position to do so. If nothing else, the price of the RN4 should drop a little once the note 5 is released.

      • Luc

        Hi Jh1, hope you are well! It is my fault, since the RN4 SD variant has been released I keep asking myself if it is the right device for me. I am always hesitating and at the end I never make the jump. I am not short in terms of money, I mean that I could order the MI6 today. I need a decent camera and good battery life on my phone. I don’t need the power of a SD835, I will be fine with a SD630 or SD660 (I doubt that Xiaomi will release a RN5 with that CPU, I might be wrong). I need a phone urgently but at the same time I think that I will be stupid to get the RN4 when the RN5 is on his way to be unveiled.

        • Jh1

          The xiaomi x1 is also supposed to be released soon (July 11). More pricy than the RN5, but sounds like it will fit your battery and camera requirements. Rumored to have the SD 660 too

          • Luc

            Yeah, I heard about a new X series line possible launch by Xiaomi and the X1 will be their first device. I think that the X1 will be sold at a price close to the MI6 base model. Unfortunately, like other manufacturers they can’t release a Redmi device with top notch quality in every departments because that will kill the sales for their flagship phones. SD660 is an excellent CPU which is pretty close to recent 800 series CPUs so I doubt that Xiaomi will use it in a Redmi device. That being said, we need to keep hope alive. We never know with Xiaomi. A friend of mine ordered an LG G6 (the Korean version, dual sim with Hi Fi Quad Dac) at 310€. I am sad that I missed the opportunity to buy it too. It has an excellent camera, wonderful screen quality, top quality sound from the 3.5mm jack, good battery life and a fantastic design. I mean that I would never invest €300+ to get a device from China without warranty.

          • Jh1

            That’s a great price on the G6. I understand you for sure on the x1 pricing. More than I am willing to pay for a phone as well. Hope you are able to find what you’re looking for.

          • Luc

            Thanks Jh1!

    • zymo

      I bought the RN4 Global Version (4GB/64GB) a few days ago, since I didn’t want to wait 6 month or longer for Xiaomi to release a global version just like they did with the last Redmi Notes. Despite that there won’t be huge difference in specs between N4 and N5 and if the battery really gets smaller then N4 would be the better option (for me at least).

      I will keep my N4 for the next couple of month and if Xiaomi decides to release a Global Version in the coming month then I would maybe sell my device some time around X-Max and get the N5 in Q1 2018.

  • Johhny John

    Wow, well done xiaomi, if it proves out to be true.

  • greg

    NO ,thanks , Ill wait for the upgraded version Note 5

    • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

      The same reaction when Redmi Note 4X was unveiled, but now it’s selling like crazy.

  • Bojan Radovanović

    “Leaks suggest that it would be arriving as the first Redmi Note 4 series smartphone with dual rear cameras”
    Ha,wtf???

    • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

      Actually I remember those leaks of Redmi Note 4 suggesting dual cameras. 😀

    • Shashank

      i think they have miscalculated 16+13Mp camera as a Dual camera in real 16MP for back and 13MP for front it cant be dual camera

  • balcobomber25

    As an owner of a RN4, I would love to see the following changes:

    – USB type C
    – improved fingerprint scanner
    – Band 2/12 added for global phone.
    – Better speakers

    If it made those 4 changes it would be the perfect phone for me. I absolutely love the 625 as a processor. It is one of the best and most efficient I ever used.

    • Luc

      Hi Balcobomber25, do you think it is worth to get the RN4 when the RN5 is on its way to unveiled? Do you believe that the RN5 will get the SD660? I think that Xiaomi will go for the SD630 for the RN5. Thanks in advance.

      • balcobomber25

        It will probably be the 630, the 630 will be an upgrade over the 625 but not by a great deal. LTE coverage should be a little bit better due to the upgraded modem, performance will be almost equal and the GPU should be slightly better. In the end the 625 could end up being the more efficient of the two due to the slightly lower clock speeds and weaker GPU. So it really depends what is more important to you. If battery life is most important I would go for the RN4 with SD625. If camera/gaming is wait for the SD630.

        • Luc

          Thanks Balco, do you have an idea regarding the release date of the RN5?

          • balcobomber25

            No clue. If I had to make a guess tho I would say September/October

          • Luc

            Xiaomi released the RN4 on August last year so I hope that the RN5 will be officialized soon. It is not a big deal if they chose the SD625 for the RN5A version (base model). I hope that they will bring an USB Type C and a better camera. I agree with you regarding the CPU of the high end version model, it will get the SD630 instead of the SD660. A friend of mine ordered the LG G6 Korean version in a flash sale at 310€ with Dual Sim, Quad Dac HiFi. He sent me some wonderful pictures he took with his phone. IMO the best camera phone in the market. I am sad that I missed the opportunity to buy one.

  • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

    Why the hell they decreased the battery capacity in the Redmi Note 5??!!!

    • Shashank

      for slimmer design about 7.5mm

      • Mr.Flying Zoom3rz

        I prefer bigger battery than slim design.
