Xiaomi is heavily pegged to launch the Redmi Note 5 on Feb. 14 as its first smartphone in India this year. Whether it is an entirely new device or a rebranded Redmi 5 or Redmi 5 Plus will be known on Wednesday. An alleged render of the Redmi Note 5 has appeared today that suggests it could be a different device from Redmi 5 and 5 Plus.
The below render shows that the Redmi Note 5 will be coming with an elongated display that may offer an aspect ratio of 18:9. The upper and lower bezels are also slim compared to predecessor models.
The back panel of the phone features dual rear cameras aligned vertically. Below it is the LED flash and a fingerprint scanner. The upper and lower antenna lines are also very visible. The left side of the phone seems to feature the volume rocker and power key.
The Redmi Note 5 is expected to feature a Full HD+ resolution screen of 5.99 inches. The Snapdragon 636 or 630 chipset is speculated to power the handset. The SoC is speculated to be supported by 4 GB of RAM. It may arrive in two inbuilt storage choices of 32 GB and 64 GB.
A dual camera setup featuring a 16-megapixel sensor and a 5-megapixel sensor is expected to reside on the rear of the phone. It may feature an 8-megapixel selfie snapper. It may include a huge battery of 4,100mAh capacity and it may come pre-installed with MIUI 9 flavored Android Nougat.
The images shown above are just renders and not real photos of the Redmi Note 5. The exact information on the smartphone will be confirmed on Wednesday. It has been revealed that the upcoming Redmi phone will be exclusively available through Flipkart in India.
