Xiaomi has recently launched the Redmi Note 5A with low-end specs. However, Xiaomi fans are eagerly waiting for the arrival of Redmi Note 5 that is expected to arrive with better specs along with dual rear cameras. Fresh information suggests that the three variants of Redmi Note 5 and a Redmi 5 Plus are likely to debut before Nov. 11.

Singles’ Day that is arriving on Nov. 11 is the biggest online shopping festival of China. It appears that Xiaomi is looking forward to make the most of the upcoming 11/11 annual shopping festival by announcing the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi 5 Plus before it.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5’s Standard variant that will be driven by MediaTek Helio P25 is likely to come in two choices. There could be 16 GB and 32 GB storage options with each one featuring 3 GB of RAM. These models are rumored to be respectively priced at 999 Yuan (~$150) and 1,299 Yuan (~$195).

The Redmi Note 5 High model is speculated to be driven by Snapdragon 630 chipset. It is rumored to include 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. It may be priced around 1,599 Yuan (~$240). Even though the Redmi Note 5 has recently appeared on Geekbench with an aging Snapdragon 617 chipset, it seems that there is some error with the listing as it is pegged to be fueled by SD 630 SoC.

As previous reports have revealed, the Redmi Note 5 models may arrive with 5.65-inch FHD+ display from Pegasus that will deliver an aspect ratio of 18:9. It will not only sport full screen design, but also feature dual rear cameras with 16-megapixel + 5-megapixel sensors. The rear side of the Note 5 will also include a fingerprint reader.

Xiaomi is also rumored to announce a cheap full screen design phone called Redmi 5 Plus before 11/11. It is likely to feature a 5.7-inch display that will support 720 pixels. It may feature Snapdragon 450 chipset. Speculations are rife that it will be coming with a price tag of 799 Yuan (~$120).

More information on these Xiaomi phones are expected in the coming weeks.

    The score of the Geekbench regarding the Redmi Note 5 completely discards that is using the SD 630.

    Is pretty likely to use the SD 636 or an underclocked 660.

    • Albino

      Yeah, one of those will come with the 636, still… Xiaomi have the bad habit of disappointing his fans, so I don’t know…

      • Luis Bastos

        Hey, they’ve the SnapDragon 660 in the Mi Note 3, it wouldn’t make sense for them to use the same chip on a smartphone much less expensive
        It is like what happened with the Mi Mix/Mi Note 2 and now Mi Mix 2/Mi note 3
        They have changed their focus cause they want you to buy the Mix 2, and if they’ve used a SD835 chip on the Note 3 people would forget about the mix 2!
        It’s all about marketing!

        • Albino

          Yeah, I think it was a really bad choice to put the 660 on mi note 3, and I agree with you.

        • Zero

          Actually the Mi Note 3 was a mistake…it was supposed to come with the SD 835 but failed hard to get some chips and stick with the 660.. which a SD 821 would be a better choice if you want to sell the Mi Mix 2.

          • Luis Bastos

            I don’t know if that is true or not but..I don’t understand all this..
            When a manufacturer lanches a new smartphone with a SD820 or SD821 they’re always criticised by using an “old” chipset..
            Maybe that was the reason not to use it..
            For me it’s obvious that a SD820 is not old, man it still has much more power than you might need nowadays, cause the only thing that differentiates the performance nowadays is the software optimization…
            So, sometimes you don’t need a great processor to have a great machine, you just need a great software optimization!
            So in that regard I am no worried about the 660 cause it is almost an 820 but underclocked
            Still plenty of power and lower battery consumption!
            Still, I really think this was intentional from Xiaomi, so that they wouldn’t lose some of the sales of the Mix 2, for both the Mi Note 3 and this new Redmi device (since it has a similar screen)

    • Jean Leon

      It would be really awesome if they use the S635 instead of 630, they will rape the mid-range segment, again.

  • markiz

    So what happened to the s660?!

  • erunamo

    Snapdragon 630 (or even 617) doesn’t support FHD+ resolution. The only Snapdragon 6xx that support FHD+ resolution are 660 or the new 636… So, these news are not accurate…

  • Dustojnik Hummer

    If pricing is identical to Note 4(X) in Europe, I will take 32/3 GB version of Snapdragons Variant of Note 5 and keep my Note 4(X) as a backup and ROM device.

  • Chris

    more importantly than CPU specs, does the Note 5 support LTE band 20 out of the box? Or will people have to wait another half year for a “global” version?
