Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A Spotted on TENAA, Low-End Specs

by Martin 6

The Xiaomi MDT6, which is expected to be the Redmi Note 5A, was spotted on TENAA, revealing some of the device’s specifications.

According to the listing, the new device will feature a 5.5-inch 720p HD display, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. The listing also says that the device will come with a quad-core 1.4GHz processor, which is expected to be the Snapdragon 425 from Qualcomm, as well as a 3,000mAh battery. The specs are quite low-end for a Note series smartphone, which is why it seems that the phone will be called as the Redmi Note 5A.

The Xiaomi MDT6 will come in several color options including Black, Rose Gold, Gold, White, Blue, Red, Pink, Gray, and Silver, which is quite a large number of options, if accurate. It will also come with Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box with Xiaomi’s MIUI 8 on top.

      Hi Jh1, hope you are well. Indeed, this is the RN5A. According to recent news, the RN5A will be officialized in August 21st. Do you think that they will unveil the other models with higher specifications the same day? I am still waiting for a nice price drop for the MI5X from a trusted reseller. I have read that Xiaomi will use once again the SD625 for the higher end models. If it is the case, I hope that a MI5X Global Edition will see the light pretty soon. Peace!

        Hi, Francis. I doubt they will release the higher versions of the redmi note 5 the same day as the RN5A. Xiaomi always seems to released one version, then a few weeks later another variant pops up. I hadn’t heard that they had announced a release date for the RN5A yet. I’m surprised that it sounds like they are planning on releasing it before the standard redmi note 5. Not usually their style. As far as SoC, I keep hearing rumors of the SD 630 powering the RN5, or even a SD660 version. Personally, I think it will probably come with a SD625, then perhaps a SD630 for the higher end variants.

          I have read on some other websites that Xiaomi might officialize the RN5A in August 21st. According to a recent article published on Gsmarena, there are 4 models of the RN5 in total. Two base model of the RN5 will be released first respectively equipped with SD425 and SD430. The same article states that the two higher end versions will be released with SD625 or SD630 or SD660. IMHO I doubt that Xiaomi will use the SD660 for the RN5 Pro/Prime edition. I mean that if they really wanted to use that Soc, they would have used it for the Xiaomi Mi 5X.

          However, I think that there is a huge chance to see a RN5 equipped with SD630 Soc. But I really don’t know when this version will be released. So one of the high end version of the RN5 will be for sure equipped with SD625.

          Frankly, I don’t understand the strategy of Xiaomi here. They should have postponed the release of the Mi 5X or even canceled it. Instead they should have focused on the release the RN5 equipped with SD630, the double camera they used for the Mi 5X and a battery capacity of 4100 mAH. It would have been a killer phone and I would consider to pay 220€ for it instantly!!!

          I don’t know what the marketing guys smoke there…
