Xiaomi Redmi 4A, being a budget smartphone, offers entry-level features such as a plastic body design and no fingerprint sensor. However, its successor Redmi 5A is unlikely to carry forth all of the old features as per the newly leaked poster. Spotted on Chinese website ithome.com, the smartphone is shown as sporting a metal body design, with antenna lines running at the top of rear panel. Other than the change in material, the design language remains similar to the Redmi 4A with speaker grille at the bottom of the rear panel and the camera with LED flash placed on the top left.

One of the most interesting details from the poster is that Xiaomi is promising an 8-day standby battery life, which is pretty significant given the short-lived batteries in modern phones. According to GizmoChina, the promotional tagline for the phone roughly translates to ‘Lightweight and Long Battery Life’. The poster further reveals that the Redmi 5A will weigh 131.5 grams, and will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. It will be one of the first set of Xiaomi phones to run on MIUI 9 out-of-the-box. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Diwali with Mi sale: Deals on Redmi Note 4, Redmi 4, Mi Max 2 and more

Previous leaks also indicate that it will house a 3,000mAh battery, however, in light of the latest leaks, we might get to see a higher capacity battery when the company officially announces the phone on October 20.
