In two days Xiaomi will launch a new smartphone in India. Although there is proof that the phone will be called the Redmi Note 5, some say that it is the Redmi 5 Plus going by a new name. However, a new unconfirmed report has surfaced which says there will be a Redmi Note 5 Pro launching along with the Redmi Note 5.
The new info is a tweet detailing Xiaomi’s product launch on Wednesday, 14th of February in India. According to the poster @luckyankit, Xiaomi will launch the Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro and a new Mi TV. He also provided specification details of the two phones.
Redmi Note 5
The Redmi Note 5 is said to have a 5.7” 1080 x 2160 display and powered by the Snapdragon 625. It will come in 3GB and 4GB RAM variants with 32GB and 64GB of storage respectively.
Camera specification is put at 12MP on the rear and 5MP in front. It will pack a 4,000mAh battery, have a dual hybrid SIM slot, and run MIUI 9.5 based on Nougat.
Redmi Note 5 Pro
The Pro version on the other hand will have the same FHD+ resolution with a 5.7” or 5.9” display. A Snapdragon 636 will be the chip under the hood and it will be paired with 4GB or 6GB of RAM. Irrespective of the variant, the phone will come with 64GB ROM.
It appears the Redmi Note 5 leaks we have been seeing with dual cameras is actually the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Luckyankit says it has a 12MP and 5MP combo on the rear while a 20MP camera graces the front.
Just like the Redmi Note 5, the Pro also has a hybrid SIM slot, runs MIUI 9.5 based on Nougat and has a 3.5mm audio jack. Battery capacity is not confirmed but may be 4,000mAh too. Both devices will also be Flipkart exclusive.
This leak is unconfirmed, so we advise you to take it with a grain of salt.
The launch will hold in New Delhi at 12:00 noon (local time) and will also be live-streamed here.
