Smartphones like HTC s flagships and the Honor 6 Plus boast a similar dual-camera setup, and Apple too is widely rumored to be opting for a similar camera setup on its iPhone 6S. The leaked photo shows the smartphone sporting two camera lens and dual-LED flash on the top-right corner, and the Mi logo is seen towards the bottom. The overall design is quite similar to the Mi 4, albeit with the camera setup.
The Redmi Note 2 photo, on the other hand, reiterates the presence of a fingerprint scanner at the back. The scanner is placed below the camera lens and LED flash. The photo also reveals that the Redmi Note 2 body will be made of plastic, which is not very surprising considering its price segment. The photo is also in line with what has leaked before.
From what we have heard so far, the Mi 5 is being internally called Libra and is likely to flaunt a 5.3-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) display. It will also feature a Snapdragon 820 64-bit processor, 4GB of RAM, 16GB/64GB internal storage, 3,030mAh battery, and a fingerprint scanner.
The Redmi Note 2 is likely to flaunt a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 1080 pixels) display, and could be powered by a MediaTek Helio X10 chipset. The phablet is also likely to feature a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera, 3,000mAh battery, LTE support, and run on Android Lollipop wrapped under MIUI 6.
