Xiaomi is gearing up to release its first affordable full-screen smartphone. A few days ago, two Redmi phones were seen on TENAA, differing only in their memory configuration. New details have surfaced and they mention a third full-screen phone.

Redmi 5

According to the source, the three full-screen Redmi phones are the Redmi 5, Redmi 5 Plus, and the Redmi Note 5. All three phones will have an 18:9 display but will differ with respect to screen size and internal configuration.

One of the phones will have a 5.5” HD+ display which we presume is the Redmi 5. The other two will have 5.9” FHD+ displays just like the ones on TENAA.

The source also says that the difference (in addition to the screen) between the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus will be the storage configuration. The Redmi 5 will have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage while the Plus variant will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. The Redmi 5 Plus will also be powered by a Helio P25 SoC and have a ¥1099(~$165) price.

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you should know things will be more complicated than that. The Redmi 5 Plus will most likely have a 3GB RAM + 32GB ROM variant too and also get a Snapdragon-powered variant.

For the Redmi Note 5, the source says it will have the new Snapdragon 636 SoC on board. RAM will be 3GB paired with 32GB of built-in storage. The Note 5 is expected to cost as much as ¥1599 (~$240).

There is also a leaked screenshot that talks about the production schedule for the phones and hints at a December release date.

All these new details are unconfirmed by the way, so we suggest you take them with a pinch of salt. The only confirmed full-screen phones at the moment are the Redmi MEE7 and Redmi MET7 which have already been certified by TENAA.
