We all know about Xiaomi’s Redmi Note series. They have always been the best bang for the buck phone, providing great specs for the prices it offers. And now, their new iteration of the Redmi Note series – the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 has been leaked.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 maintains its tradition by offering the same 5.5″ 1080P IPS display. It seems there will be two versions of the device this time as well. One with the Snapdragon 630 SoC and the other running on the Snapdragon 660 SoC. The 660 is obviously a better SoC with its more powerful Kryo cores and better GPU. Although, both SoCs are very power efficient — all thanks to the 14nm process.
According to the leaks, the front camera houses a 13MP sensor. The back camera is also a single lens 16MP Sony IMX 234 sensor with f/2.0 aperture and 0.3s focus lock (PDAF). So, if leaks are true, we will have to wait for another generation to get the dual rear camera setup.
The phone houses a smaller 3,790mAh battery compared to 4100mAh battery on Note 3 and 4, this could be done maybe to make the device thinner (7.5mm). It also comes with the USB C port and Quick charge 3.0. The phone is available with up to 4GB RAM and 64GB storage.
Expected Price of Redmi Note 5:
|Xiaomi Redmi Note 5||CNY||USD (est)||EUR (est)|
|3GB RAM / 32GB storage||1,200||$175||€155|
|4GB RAM / 32GB storage||1,400||$205||€180|
