Recent reports have spilled a lot of information on the rumored Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus. Now, the rumor mill has leaked some interesting information on the Redmi 5 phone.
According to a Chinese publication, MDT1 and MDE1 Xiaomi phones that were previously spotted on China’s TENAA certification body have received 3C certification. The 3C certification of MDT1 and MDE1 have revealed that these Xiaomi devices will carry support for 5V/2A charging. Also, they will be supporting all the carriers in China. The publication claims that these phones that are being manufactured by Wing Tech ODM may launch as Redmi 5.
The report continues to mention that it has a 5.7-inch display that supports HD+ resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels along with support for 18:9 aspect ratio. It is speculated to be driven by Snapdragon 450. It features a front camera of 6-megapixel and a rear camera of 8-megapixel.
There seems to be some discrepancies in the aforementioned specs for Redmi 5 because Redmi series have always featured 5-inch displays. Hence, the rumored Redmi 5 may continue to house a 5-inch screen. As previous reports have claimed, the Redmi 5 Plus may arrive with a 5.7-inch full screen display and it speculated to arrive with 13-megapixel dual rear cameras. It is expected to be available with a starting price of 999 Yuan (~$151).
The base model of the Redmi 5 is likely to cost 799 Yuan (~$121) and it is pegged to feature 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. On the other hand, the higher variant may house 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage and it may carry a price tag of 899 Yuan (~$136).
Xiaomi is rumored to fulfil its goal of shipping 90 million smartphones by the end of 2017. Speculations are rife that the new Redmi phones would be made available for buying during the upcoming Singles’ Day (Nov. 11) online shopping festival.
