Xiaomi released the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus back in December, and since then suspicions are the company is going to sell the bigger version as Redmi Note 5 in its global markets. Latest leaks from China suggest the contrary – Xiaomi is actually preparing two entirely new versions of the Redmi Note 5 that will come with a dual camera.
According to a 3C listing, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 will have a Snapdragon 636, paired with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB storage. The screen is expected to have a 5.99” diagonal and 18:9 ratio.
The dual camera will have 16 MP + 5 MP sensors, while the front one will be 8 MP. The alleged phone will come with MIUI 9 out of the box and will support face recognition. The battery should be 4,100 mAh with 18W Fast Charge support.
There is also a cheaper version in the works, the regulatory says. It will have Snapdragon 630 which is clocked slightly lower than the SD636 and memory will be 3/32 GB. Its price is expected to start from CNY1,499 (€190/$238), while the mightier version should cost CNY1,799 (€230/$285).
Both Redmi Note 5 phones are expected next month, so there is a slight chance that we might see them at MWC 2018 alongside the Mi 7.
