A new computer-generated image has surfaced and it’s claimed to be of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5. Like the first one it shows a dual camera and a fingerprint scanner on the back and an 18:9 screen on the front with unbelievably-slim bezels. We use that word on purpose as we expect those bezels to be a tad thicker on the actual device.
Earlier today we reported that the Redmi Note 5 might have a Pro version with a Snapdragon 636 that will launch in India on February 14 alongside a tamer Snapdragon 626-yielding Redmi Note 5.
However some believe that the Redmi Note 5 will be a single device and will be the Redmi 5 Plus that was launched in China last month.
If the render below is trustworthy then the Redmi 5 Plus and the Redmi Note 5 are different phones. The Redmi 5 Plus has a single back camera and a Snapdragon 625, the alleged Redmi 5 will have a dual back camera and a Snapdragon 626.
If February 14 in India brings a new device with a dual camera it’s rumored it will be comprised of a 16MP+5MP sensors. The front camera is tipped to be an 8MP unit.
Chances are, the screen will be a 5.99-incher of FullHD+ (2160x1080px) resolution. Finally a 4,100mAh battery completes the speculated package.
We’ll find out in two days.
