Xiaomi is expected to unveil the Redmi Note 5 China version on March 16 and as you would have known, the Redmi Note 5 which would be launched is the same as the Note 5 Pro which made its entry into India on February 14.
Recently, a Xiaomi exec hinted that the Redmi Note 5 would come with a surprise on its camera. The official did not say what the surprise would be, after all, it is a surprise which will be kept secret until the big day. Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun has now confirmed the presence of a surprise configuration for the Redmi Note 5 camera. Lei Jun did not reveal the configuration of the expected Redmi Note 5 China version but the recent TENAA certification seems to suggest the presence of a quad camera setup on the device.
As a reminder, China version will be entirely different from the India model. The Redmi Note 5 as seen in India features a 12MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and an individual pixel size of 1.25μm. It comes with features like fast autofocus and PDAF. At the front, there is an 8MP camera which has been optimized to capture good quality selfie shots in low-light conditions. The front camera is equipped with an LED flash and Beauty 3.0 for snapping enhanced selfie shots. We’ll have to wait until it is announced on March 16 to find out what the surprise is.
