Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 Listed Online As Launch Seems Imminent
Xiaomi’s most successful line of smartphones in India, the Redmi Note series might be getting its new flag bearer very soon. The Redmi Note 5, apparent successor to the hugely successful Redmi Note 4 might be coming to India soon.
A recent listing on a couple of e-commerce websites have shed some light on what the Redmi Note 5 might have to offer when it launches.
The Redmi Note 5 will sport a 5.99-inch display with a 2160 x 1080 px resolution, and as rumoured for weeks, will feature an 18:9 aspect ratio.
The listing suggests that the Redmi Note 5 will have the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, but, since that is an old chipset, expect the Snapdragon 630 chipset instead. The device is also expected to be launched in a couple of variants, one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage and the other one with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. As is with a lot of Redmi Note phones, the Redmi Note 5 is also expected to be powered by a massive battery.
The Redmi Note 5 is expected to have a 12MP rear-facing camera and a front facing 5MP camera.
Xiaomi recently announced a permanent price cut for the Redmi Note 4 which suggests that the company is making room for the Redmi Note 5 in that price bracket which already flooded with phones from other OEMs.
Additionally, Manu Jain, Head of Xiaomi India shared a teaser on Twitter hinting at launch of a new product.
