Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is probably the company s most successful smartphone. The company recently announced to have sold about five million units of the device in India. This curiosity naturally builds a lot of expectation for its successor, Redmi Note 5, which is believed to be under work. However, interestingly, media reports have long been hinting that before the Redmi Note 5 hits the market, the company will be launching a smaller and more affordable version of the smartphone, which will be called the Redmi Note 5A. Now, possibly inching a step closer to being a reality, Xiaomi may have teased the launch of the smartphone.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A specifications, features

Just yesterday, the Redmi Note 5A was spotted on China s certification website TENAA, and passing through the certification generally means that a smartphone is ready and approved to hit the market. The TENAA listing revealed the Redmi Note 5A to feature a 5.5-inch HD display with a resolution of 1280 720 pixels, powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 chipset under the hood. It revealed the smartphone featuring 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. ALSO READ: Xiaomi Redmi Note 5A with 5.5-inch HD display, 3,000mAh battery spotted on TENAA

The listing also showed the Redmi Note 5A running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat out-of-the-box with MIUI 8 on top, which is surprising considering Xiaomi has already launched MIUI 9 last month, with the Mi 5X running it. TENAA listing also revealed a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera on the smartphone, and a 3,000mAh battery. It also mentions the listed smartphone being available in black, rose gold, gold, white, blue, red, pink, gray, and silver color variants.

Besides the TENAA listing, not long ago, some renders of the Redmi Note 5A had also surfaced, which revealed a handful about the design of the phone. According to those render the Redmi Note 5A will sport a metal unibody, a single rear camera with an LED flash at the back, power button and volume rocker on the right, and a micro USB port on the bottom. A 3.5 mm headphone jack sits on the top. From what this design revealed, the Redmi Note 5A will skip the fingerprint scanner.
