XIAOMI REDMI NOTE 5 : Release Soon

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has been one of the most successful smartphones of 2017. As this year reaches its summit, the anticipation around the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will increase exponentially. The Redmi Note 4 was launched in January of 2017 and it is widely expected that the Redmi Note 5 will also be launched at a similar time to maintain consistency.
There have been multiple leaks about the Redmi Note 5 and conflicting reports have somewhat clouded what actually could be the Redmi Note 5.
The most reliable leak so far was an image of the Redmi Note 5 showing off an 18:9 aspect ratio display with key specifications revealed on the screen of the phone.
According to the image, the Redmi Note 5 will have Snapdragon 625 chipset. The phone also has a 5.99-inch display with a very 2017-like 18:9 ratio and Full HD+ (2160 x 1080 px) resolution.
The phone shows 54GB of storage available, meaning that the variant in question here is the 64GB unit. There is at least one camera with a 12 MP sensor and the smartphone runs on Android 7.1.2 Nougat. The device appears to be powered by a 4000 mAh battery and due to thin bezels, the fingerprint sensor is placed at the back of the phone, much like the Redmi Note 4.
It is highly unlikely that Xiaomi will go for the Snapdragon 625 chipset since it is the same chipset found on the Redmi Note 4. A year later, consumers would expect more and this doesn’t fall in line with the Redmi Note series. The Chinese smartphone maker could go for the Snapdragon 636 chipset which will enable mid-range devices to have bezel-less displays with FHD+ resolution.
In terms of optics, there have been few reports suggesting that it will have a dual-camera setup while some reports suggest that it will have a single 16MP camera at the back and 5MP camera at the front.
The price of the phone is expected to be under the Rs 15000 mark when it launches in India next year.
