The Redmi Note 5 is expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat OS-based MIUI 9 out-of-the-box. Also Read - Redmi Note 9 5G, Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G are official

According to the certification, the smartphone could flaunt a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080p) display. At the heart of smartphone will either be Qualcomm s 64-bit Snapdragon 652 octa-core SoC (four Cortex A53 cores + four Cortex A72 cores) or MediaTek s 64-bit Helio X25 deca-core SoC (eight Cortex A53 cores + two Cortex A72 cores). Going by history, India is likely to get the Snapdragon variant, whereas the MediaTek variant could be sold in China and other Asian countries. The Redmi Note 5 is also likely to feature 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB onboard storage. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X with Snapdragon 653 processor, 4GB of RAM rumored to launch soon

In the photography department, a 16-megapixel rear snapper and an 8-megapixel selfie snapper is likely to be in tow. To keep things ticking, the smartphone could be fuelled by a 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support. With connectivity options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11n and GPS, and USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer is expected. Based on the rumors, the Redmi Note 5 prices could start from $191, which is approximately Rs 13,000. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 Review: The game changer, again!

Interestingly, the Redmi Note 4X, which recently surfaced seems to have slightly better Qualcomm Snapdragon 653 SoC. If that turns out to be true, the incremental version would beat the successor. However, this is just what the leaks are hinting and would be vague to compare specifications based on leaks. We d rather wait for Xiaomi to officially announce the smartphone before drawing any conclusion.
