We have seen a few leaks surrounding Xiaomi‘s upcoming Redmi Note 5 smartphone. Now, a new image of the smartphone has surfaced online through JD.com listing, revealing that the phone will feature a full-screen display, as rumoured earlier.
As the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 smartphone has been listed on Chinese retailer JD.com, it is believed that the launch of the smartphone should be imminent. Do note that the listing suggests 8,888 Yuan as the phone’s pricing but that is just symbolic and doesn’t reflect the smartphone’s actual price.
A couple of weeks ago, two smartphones — Redmi MET7 and Redmi MEE7 appeared through TENAA which are believed to be the variants of the Redmi Note 5 smartphone. Both devices differ in terms of memory and storage capacity only.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will be featuring a 5.9-inch Full HD IPS LCD display with a screen resolution 2160 x 1080 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. It will come with a full-screen design with thin bezels around the display. Earlier, the phone was speculated to have a 5.7-inch Full HD+ display.
Under the hood, it is powered by a 2.0GHz octa-core processor, but the chipset version is not yet known. We are expecting the device to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor.
The smartphone will be available in two variants — 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB of internal storage. It also has a microSD card slot, allowing users to expand the storage capacity.
While the company has been focusing on the camera department, it doesn’t seem to the focus point for the Redmi Note 5. The device is expected to comes with a 12MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. It will support Dual SIM connectivity along with dual standby feature. It will also have the usual set of connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
In terms of software, the phone will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat-based MIUI 9. It will be fuelled by a 4,000mAh battery. According to the earlier TENAA leak, the smartphone will be available in Black, Rose Gold, White, Blue, Gold, Pink, Red, Grey and Silver colour options.
While the pricing details on the JD.com listing of the device is symbolic, previous leaks related to the Redmi Note 5 suggests that the smartphone could be priced around 1,599 Yuan (~ $241).
