Ahead of its launch event, Xiaomi has flagged off its Redmi Note 5, hinting that the handset will soon be unveiled. Though we can’t say for sure if it will happen this year, given the fact that we are almost wrapping up with 2017, but going by this new appearance of the Note 5 device, there’s a high chance we’ll see the handset before the year finally runs out.
Going by this latest listing, the successor to Redmi Note 4 is seen bearing key specs, which unarguably will offer smartphone buyers a new design and the competitive features that made its predecessor a huge success.
The alleged Redmi Note 5 will come running MIUI 9 based on Android 7.1 OS whilst featuring a large 5.99-inch display tagged with 1080×2160 pixels resolution.
According to one previous rumor, the display will offer the trending 18:9 aspect ratio. The handset was also hinted to be powered by Qualcomm’s dated Snapdragon 625 processor which is clearly old, given that Snapdragon 630 is now out.
The upcoming Note 5 is also said to offer two variants including 3GB RAM/32GB storage and 4GB RAM/64GB storage.
In the camera department, the handset comes with a 12-megapixel rear camera and at the front, sports a 5-megapixel sensor. The device is fitted with a massive 4000mAh battery.
Separately, Xiaomi recently announced the reduction in the price of its famous Redmi Note 4 flagship, and many are claiming that it might be a sign that points to
an imminent launch.
