While Xiaomi has already launched the Redmi 4 smartphone in India, rumors have it that the company is working on a successor to the Redmi 4. Dubbed as the Xiaomi Redmi 5, the smartphone has made an appearance online through leaked live photos. While this perhaps the first time live photos have emerged, specifications of the smartphone were recently leaked via TENAA listing.

As spotted by Androidhealdine, the latest live images of the Redmi 5 reveal a different look from what was seen on the TENAA listing. Going by the latest live images, the Redmi 5 will not come with a full metal body, as hinted by the TENAA listing back in February. Instead, the smartphone is seen featuring a polycarbonate body. Some images also reveal specification of the phone and going by that the Redmi 5 will have an ARM processor clocked at 2GHz. This is yet again contradictory to the TENAA listing which hinted a processor clocked at 1.4GHz. Another major feature missing in the live photos of the Redmi 5 is the fingerprint scanner. While the previous listing shows a fingerprint scanner placed at the back. Considering there is no way to authenticate the images, we would suggest you take this piece of information with a pinch of salt.
