Yesterday some leaked press renders of the upcoming Xiaomi Redmi 5 were making the rounds, and a few hours ago the Chinese company decided to officially tease it, while also revealing that it will be made official on December 7.
Ahead of that, the Redmi 5 has today received TENAA’s certification, a prerequisite for every device that’s to be sold in China. As usual, this means we have a couple of new images of the phone to look at.
What’s more, a pretty comprehensive list of specs has been revealed by the certification authority too. The Redmi 5 will have a 5.7″ 18:9 touchscreen with 1,440×720 resolution, and a 1.8 GHz octa-core processor. On the rear will sit a 12 MP camera, while for selfies a 5 MP shooter should do the trick.
The Redmi 5 runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat underneath MIUI, and it will come in multiple configuration options, with 2/3/4GB of RAM and 16/32/64GB of storage, with microSD expansion. It will be kept chugging along by a 3,200 mAh battery.
The phone’s dimensions are 151.8 x 72.8 x 7.7 mm, and it weighs 157g. It will be offered in black, rose gold, gold, white, blue, red, pink, gray, and silver – undoubtedly one of the most colorful handsets we’ve seen in a long while. Xiaomi has already revealed that the Redmi 5 will start at CNY 999 in China, which right now translates into $151 or 127.
