Redmi Note 5: First Look


It looks like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5’s announcement seems to be right around the corner. The phone is getting certified in China and quite recently some new info regarding the device, and its siblings, has just surfaced online.


The Redmi Note 5 has been popping everywhere, and it appears that this new rumor is claiming that Xiaomi actually plans on introducing three ‘full-screen’ Redmi-branded smartphones which will come in the near future, the Redmi 5, Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi Note 5.

However, as per this rumor, it looks like all three handsets will be sporting a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, even though their specs and display size will differ, of course. The Redmi 5 has been rumored to sport a 5.5-inch HD+ (1440 x 720) display.

This is quite interesting considering that its predecessors had come with a 5-inch panel, but considering the fact that this phone will probably be having considerably thinner bezels, and a display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, it should not be, in all possibility, that much bigger than the Redmi 4, for example, if it will be bigger at all.

Sell Old Phone

The Redmi 5 Plus and Redmi Note 5 are said to have 5.9-inch fullHD+ (2160 x 1080) displays, which is rather interesting to notice, especially for the Redmi 5 Plus, as one would assume that it will sport the same display size as the regular Redmi 5 handset.

The Xiaomi Redmi 5 and the Redmi 5 Plus will not only differ in the display department, according to the source, but the two phones will also sport different storage configurations. The Redmi 5 is being speculated to sport 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, while its ‘Plus’ variant will arrive with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of native storage. The Redmi 5 Plus will most probably be fueled by the Helio P25 64-bit octa-core SoC, and it will, allegedly, have a cost of 1,099 Yuan ($165).

Release & Launch

Now, there is also the possibility that some, or all of these phones will arrive in two SoC variants, MediaTek and Snapdragon variants, however it looks like the source does not mention that. The Redmi Note 5 will, however, probably come with the Snapdragon 636 64-bit octa-core SoC, and it can be expected to cost around 1,599 Yuan ($240).

It should be noted that all of this info should be taken with a grain of salt, as some details don’t exactly make all that much sense, like the display size difference between the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus. The Redmi Note 5 is however, expected to launch on November 11, in accordance to a recent leak, so it is possible that all three phones will be announced on that date.
