After launching the Redmi 5A in India, Xiaomi is all set to launch the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus in China on December 7. The smartphones have been teased for a while now and rumors suggest that the phones will feature 18:9 aspect ratio displays. Now, the latest report gives us a clearer look at what the smartphones might actually look like.
The Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus have been spotted in a tweet by Donovan Sung, Xiaomi Global spokesperson, via Twitter. The images showcase the smartphones from all angles. The Twitter caption read: “Is everyone ready for the all-new Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus? We’re launching these two new devices in China on Thursday Dec 7. Giving everyone a sneak preview!”.
The images also reveal that the phones will be available in a choice of Black, Pink and Light Blue colors. The image yet again confirms the bezel-less design as has been the industry trend this year. The Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus looks identical and will only differ in the display size. The smartphones are expected to sport a full metal body design with a fingerprint sensor at the back just below the rear camera.
In terms of specifications, the Redmi 5 is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM. Also on offer will be 64GB of internal storage. The Redmi 5 could sport a 12-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. It will most likely be fueled by a 3,300mAh battery. The Redmi 5 Plus, on the other hand, could come with a bigger 5.9-inch full HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 18:9, and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC. Unlike the Redmi 5, the Redmi 5 Plus is said to feature a dual-camera setup with a combination of 12-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors.
Both the Redmi 5 and Redmi 5 Plus will most likely run Android 7.1.1 Nougat with MIUI 9 on top. In terms of pricing, the Redmi 5 could retail at RMB 1,399 (Rs 13,600 approximately).
