Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 specifications and features

In terms of hardware, there isn t much of a difference compared to the Redmi Note 4. The new smartphone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC paired with Adreno 506 GPU, 3GB/4GB of RAM, and 32GB/64GB storage. A hybrid SIM card slot is also present, allowing you to use two SIM cards, or one SIM card and a microSD card.

In the photography department, Xiaomi has equipped the Redmi Note 5 with a 12-megapixel main camera of aperture f/2.2 and pixel size of 1.25um. It is paired with a dual-tone LED flash. Up front, you have a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash, for selfies and video calling.

Armed with a 4,000mAh battery, the Redmi Note 5 doesn’t support fast charging. Connectivity options on the smartphone include Bluetooth, dual-SIM card slots with 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi and GPS. In the software department, the Redmi Note 5 runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat with a layer of MIUI 9, which is a bit disappointing. However, the smartphone will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo in the coming months.

At its price point, the Redmi Note 5 will compete with the Infinix Hot S3 and Honor 9 Lite, both of which have their own USP and come with 18:9 display.
