The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will be coming later this July according to the latest rumors. The upcoming Xiamoi handset will reportedly come with some impressive specs as evidenced by the latest leaked image of the Redmi Note 5.
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will be powered either by Qualcomm Snapdragon 64-bit octa-core 630 processor or a 660 chipset with Kyro cores, as reported by GSMArena. The Redmi Note 5 will have up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal memory. It will run on Android 7.1.1 Nougat along with the company's very own MIUI 9 operating system.
The Redmi Note 5 will also come with a 16-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX 234 sensor. The main shooter also has a f/2.0 aperture and 0.3s focus lock. For selfies, users can take advantage of the Redmi Note 5's remarkable 13-megapixel front-facing camera.
The leaked image, as Android Headlines noted, showcases what could be a fingerprint scanner just underneath the display. The publication believes this feature will also work as the device's home button. The images also point to a 5.5-inch IPS display which will likely have 1080p resolution.
Despite being the newest installment of the Redmi Note series, Xiaomi decided to reduce the battery of the Redmi Note 5 to 3,790mAh. The Redmi Note 4 came with a huge 4,100mAh. The move was necessary to lessen the handset's thickness down to only 7.5mm. To make up for the smaller battery, Xiaomi added QuickCharge 3.0 or 4.0.
The Xiamoi Redmi Note 5 will be available for a base price of $175 for the 3GB RAM and 32GB storage model. Buyers who choose to upgrade to 4GB of Ram will spend $205 while a further upgrade to 64GB memory takes one back by $220. To quip, there's only a difference of $45 between the base model and the highest-end Redmi Note 5.
