Early this month, Xiaomi launched the Redmi Note 5 and Redmi Note 5 Pro in India. The former is already available in China as the Redmi 5 Plus but the Note 5 Pro is expected to launch soon. The phone has now appeared on TENAA ahead of its official release.
According to TENAA, the Redmi Note 5 Pro’s model number is MEC7S. The pictures provided on TENAA are of the Lake Blue variant but it will launch in champagne gold, rose gold and black too. The Redmi Note 5 Pro has a metallic rear but the top and bottom where the antennas are housed are actually made of plastic.
There are dual rear cameras positioned on the left corner and a fingerprint scanner that sits in the middle. Up in front is an 18:9 display with slightly reduced bezels at the top and bottom.
The phone has a 5.99” 2160 x 1080 display. It comes in 4GB and 6GB variants and is powered by the Snapdragon 636 processor with an Adreno 509 GPU.
The Chinese version is said to come with a different camera configuration but the Indian variant has a 20MP selfie camera with LED flash and a 12MP + 5MP combo on the rear. There is also a 4000mAh battery powering it.
Xiaomi is expected to announce the Chinese version of the Redmi Note 5 Pro in March.
